I hope someone can help me I'm desperate and at a loose end!!

About 2 months ago i went to my car pressed the unlock button on the fob and only the drivers door opened. It has been the same ever since. I can open the passenger door manually with the key but my back doors will not open at all and if i try to double lock my car the boot opens.

Please please please can someone help me because i cant afford to be ripped off by an auto electrician so i would like to go to one with ideas as to what it could be myself??? Plus I've got an MOT coming up soon and i would really like to have it sorted by then.

Hoping someone can help me!

Thanks Hayley x

What happens if you try locking and unlocking from inside the car using the locking lever (the small black one below the chrome interior handle)? Push inwards to lock, pull out (or operate the interior handle) to unlock.

Your boot problem sounds like you're pressing the wrong button on your remote. Two presses on the bottom button unlatches the boot, two presses on the middle button double-locks the doors.

Theres a separate button on the fob that opens the boot so i know its the correct button for double locking. If i try to open the doors from the inside nothing happens, the handles just pull outwards not unlocking the doors or anything.

After consulting the Haynes diagrams I regret to say that it looks like a faulty GEM (that's the Generic Electronic Module that controls all the body systems including lighting, wipers, and central locking).
