Hi Folks,

Sorry if there's already been an answer posted for this. I've scoured the forum, reading many posts about central locking but can't find any that describe my exact situation.

I've just got an 02 reg Focus CL and have encountered the first problem.

The car has key operated central locking (ie NOT remote locking from the key fob) I locked the car with they key today as usual and now it won't unlock. I've tried both the driver's and passenger doors and the boot lock with no joy. The key meets no resistence as it used to when turned to unlock.

Key still opens the petrol cap and bonnet release as before, just not the doors or boot.

What can I do?

is your key badley worn if so take it to a key cut shop so they can read it and cut you a new one. just cut for the doors

Thanks for the reply Dezwez. Both keys are a bit worn but I'd initially ruled that out as they worked in the bonnet release and petrol cap. I'll give it a try.
