the drivers door lock acts as a kind of master for the locking, when this starts to break down it can cause all sorts of problems like the moton auto lock activating and doors having a mind of there own. this would be my first part of investigation

Mine were locking and unlocking at various times, driving etc. However now the central locking wont work at all. An there is a clicking from the dash board. And the immobiliser light just flickers on and off.

Any pointers as to why would eb gratefully received. Its been a great car and at 133k miles is still going like a trainand dont really want to scrap it.

Any ideas????

cheers
