Hi guys,

My car does not lock when I push the central locking button. It will try to lock but then it cannot. If I lock the drivers door manualt with the key all doors lock. If I unlock it with the central locking all the doors unlock except drivers. And if I lock the drivers door from inside and try to push central locking all doors lock.

I'm guessing it has something to do with the drivers door??

Have something to contribute?

Sounds like it could be the locking solanoid / actuator isnt kicking in. You will probably need to remove the door card, and have a look at the system, its probably seized so a dose of WD40 or oil should help to release it

NOT WD40!!!!!!!!!  Unless you want to be replacing your entire C/L module in six months - it's a penetrant and will destroy soldered joints.  You should not use it anywhere near electrical circuits.  Ever.

 

Get some proper electrical contact/switch cleaner.

I tend to refer to all lubes as WD40 - my bad!

 

oil on mechanical parts and electrical contact cleaner elsewhere as BigD says.
