  12. Hi all, ive bit of an issue with the central locking on my 2000 1.4 focus. I dont have key fob since I bought the car, when I use the key all the doors will lock no problem but, won't unlock, the key will only unlock the door I use it on. I've tried the renound fuse 63 and was perfect, I tryd the central locking test by pressing the door latch switch 6 times within the eight seconds with the key out of the ignition, with it in the ignition, then with the ignition on, and then the car starting but notin happened either way, Could Any one shed any light on the issue am I missing something? Don't know what's next, thanks for taking the time to read any info or ideas I would appreciate them Cheers :)
