Hi MSRS, when you say it works when it wants, do you mean it only unlocks one door periodically? is it related to temperature perhaps? Do you hear the other doors click in as if they try to unlock?

As for the remotes, if your car previously has had remotes then you can buy them and code them without too much agro, but depending on the variant of focus and due to the year, I *think* there were some of the lesser spec had the option of being built without remote central locking (who on earth would choose to do that :P)

Let us know the info and we can see what we can do for you!

... Oh and welcome along :)
msrs

I'm pretty sure that the CL version did not come with remote central locking, i'm pretty sure it was only on the LX and above.

Cl does not have remote locking via remote only via the key
msrs
thanks to members for the info about my central locking

I've got an 2001 1.6 LX - the central locking works fine from the key remote but can't be locked from the front internal door lock tabs, the fuses are fine (can't see if it has the mystical fuse 63) but I'm not sure what to look at next.

Hi PaulHere, so your saying the car locks properly remote and not from the outside, but if you sit inside the car and try to lock the car from the door locks, only the one door is locked?
PaulHere
Hello jeebowhite, that's right.
just to reiterate:
The remote key fob works fine to lock and unlock all doors.
The central locking does not activate from the door locks inside the car, only one door is locked when you press the tab.

Sounds like a potential loose connection on the solenoid on the drivers door... How comfortable are you stripping the door down?
PaulHere
I'm more afraid for the door :rolleyes:
Any tips for removing the door card?
