    key fob and boot

    Hi I have a ford cmax 55plate my key fob does not work, i have tried to program it by turing key from i to ii 4 time i get the first beep but when i press button on fob to pair i get no responce at all, I have tried to use the fob on another and it programs fine so i know for sure there is no issue with the fob itself, just wont program on my cmax, also my boot does not open at all when i unlock doors with the key an try to press boot button between the number plate lights nothing happens any ideas with both these issues thanks
  2. Hi everyone, my first post here so sorry if I got it in the wrong place. I've just got a 51 plate Mk5 fiesta and I can't figure out how to reprogram the central locking key fob to my car. Could anyone help me out at all?
  3. Hello, I have a Ford Fiesta Zetec 2007 (MK5) with 3 Doors. I have an issue with the passenger door shutting but showing on the dashboard as being open. It often must be slammed repeatedly in order for the car to lock properly, as the car thinks the door is open and automatically unlocks it. Sometimes while driving, the dashboard will suddenly show the door as being open, usually after going round a sharp bend. I have lubricated the latch mechanism thoroughly, but the fault still occurs. I have accessed the GEM unit below the steering wheel but there are no wires that are obviously loose/damaged. Another forum thread explained that cutting a wire and terminating it to ground/earth cures the fault as the sensor will always assume the door is shut. Can anyone confirm exactly which wire to cut and attach to ground/earth?

    Hello, does any know what this is? It came up when I had problems with my battery and starter motor, both now replaced and car is starting great, however after I got this message everything works apart from my Key fob will no longer work to unlock the car, I have changed the battery in the fob and I know this is not the issue. Thank you
  5. I have the same problem but my central locking stops working completely and this only happens on very cold days when it's cold enough for the windscreen to freeze over and the problem usually goes away after 20 mins of motorway driving with the heater all the way up, any suggestions would be much appreciated, checked the connectors under the glove compartment they are not loose, i have also taken them all out and given them a good blast of electrical contact cleaner same with the connectors and relays under the bonnet and the binnacle itself as well but the problem still persists.

    Door lock problems

    Hi users, I have a 2012 Mondeo Estate Mk4 2.0tdci that has developed an irritating problem with the driver front door lock. It only affects this lock. When you press the button on the key fob to unlock the doors, it makes the noise (so you know it has unlocked, you know then reassuring clunk) but sometimes the door unlocks and sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't unlock, if you press the unlock button a couple more times then this will usually unlock the door (most of the time). Exactly the same thing happens in reverse when you are locking the car too. When you physically put the key in the lock and turn it, the locks do what they are supposed too. I'm no expert but if I had to describe the problem in layman terms then I would say that the actual motor/servo/actuator that operates the lock is a bit tired. I did the obvious thing and changed the battery in to fob just in case it was happening due to a poor signal (I didn't actually think this would be the problem but I knew someone would suggest that straight away). This didn'y make any difference to it. Has anyone else ever encountered this problem? What caused it? How did you fix it? How much did it cost? Any and all advise would be appreciated. James
  7. Hi all, i am hoping I am not the only person with this issue but my girlfriends 2009 1.4 Titanium fiesta has an intermittent central locking issue. this can go for weeks with no issues, but suddenly while driving the warning will come up saying drivers door is open. Once stopped and get out the car it will not lock manually or via the fob. It makes a click and no flashes of hazards or lights. This can last for up to 48 hours then suddenly it will work. The concern is in an unknown location it may not lock and can't leave the car! i am a newbie to the FOC, however been part of other owners club forums (puma owners, rs owners) and know that people like me can be frustrating, however I have used the search bar and pretty much googled every combination to find a result for this issue. i am hoping someone has the fix for this and I can get it sorted for her. Luckily she works close to home and in a secure car park. thanks in advance all! muddy27!
  8. hello all i recently bought a ford fiesta 1.4 2007. everything was ok with the car apart from remote central locking not working Now i have problems with the electics. the hazard warning lights come on all the time. i try to turn them off but doesnt go off. when the hazards do manage to go off, i cant get indicators to work or hazards. electric windows dont go up or down. boot release on dashboard doesnt open the boot when pressed. the boot opens randomly on its own accord. when the doors and boot are all closed, the dashboard shows a symbol to suggest that something is still open but there isn't anything open. i havent got a clue what the problem could be. auto electricians are busy for atleast a week so any suggestion is appreciated.
  9.

    Mk6 fiesta double lock

    Hi I'm sorry if this has been posted somewhere already or if I have posted in wrong place but I have a problem with my cars central locking as i can not double lock the car at all either by key in door or remote but remote doesn't seem to work regardless of what I try new battery reprogramme anything has anyone come across this problem with the double locking before if so any pointers please would be appreciated Forgot to mention i have a 1.6 mk6 fiesta ghia 52 plate
  11. Hi All! The remote locking on my Ford Focus MK1 2002 has stopped working and I cannot figure out why. I replaced the battery in my key. This did not work. I bought a new blank key and tried to pair it to the remote central locking. This did not work. I put the key blade and battery side of the existing key onto the new keys RF chip side. This did not work. I can lock the car manually fine, I just cannot figure out why the remote locking is not working. The car enters programming mode ( 2 - 0, 4 times) and beeps, but pressing or holding down the buttons on the key does not result in another beep to confirm remote pairing. Could it possibly be fuse 63? Or has the remote transponder in the car died? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  12. Hi, I'm after fitting an aftermarket RCL to my girlfriends Fiesta. It has central locking at the moment but the drivers door doesn't work with it (suspect it's the solenoid on that side). Would fitting an aftermarket remote system fix the drivers door issue? Am I best getting this type or this one Thanks.
  13. I have a weird thing happening recently on my Mk2 and wonder if it anyone else has noticed something similar. Basically, everything is ok opening up and starting the engine, but then I randomly get noises as if the central locking activates and disactivates on its own as I am driving. I don't think the doors actually lock, but just make the noise a few times as if they are (the noise you get when you press the remote locking button), and this usually happens soon after starting the engine and pulling away, but this morning it happened after about half an hour of driving as I arrived at work. Sometimes it doesn't happen at all. All this does not affect the way the car drives or anything, but just wondering if this might be an early warning of a problem developing, and one day I won't be able to get into the car or something. Anyone had anything like this before or any ideas what it could be?

    MK1 central locking

    Hi all, A couple of mornings ago I tried unlocking my car with the remote button and nothing happened. Tired a few times and then it finally unlocked (thought the fob battery might be running low). Got to work and it locked fine. Fast forward to the next evening (yesterday) and when I went to lock the car it would automatically unlock itself. (Was over 30C here yesterday - linked?). Then move forward to this morning and it stays locked when I press the fob, all apart from the drivers door. Same when I unlock. I have to put the key in for the drivers door, which doesn't do the other 3 doors. Some random events over the last 3 days. Not sure if there's something linking all of these or what. Ideas? I'm thinking of disconnecting the battery and resetting the car this weekend. Is that worth while or completely useless for the above? Thanks in advance!
  15. Morning, Looking for some advice please. I have a 62 plate Ford Kuga which I have had for 18 months & up to now no issues. Over the last week I have noticed that the passenger door behind the driver is permanently locked & won't open from the inside manually or when unlocking the car with the remote keys. Can anyone please advise / suggest what needs to be done or is it a trip to the garage? Thanks

    Hello readers, I have an old 1.4 fiesta ghia (2003) 5 door, GEM test shows both front and rear page her doors have faults as the door open light stays on. As a result, I cannot lock the car. Is there a way I can bypass the wiring to sort this, I do not want to spend more money on it, but would like to be able to lock it, I have no worries about taking the inner panels off if need be. Thanks for any info...
  17. Hi, I have recently bought a 58 plate ST150 the seller informed me there was a problem opening the drivers door since he repaired a cable for the window. It will lock ok on the fob, but can only be opened by the key in the door. The passenger door opens correctly. I also have a warning on the dash saying the passenger door is open oddly enough. The previous owner thought he had knocked something off on reassembly. I removed the door card and glass today but couldn't find anything off. I pressed open on the fob, when the door was open and in bits and the lock does make some noise as if it is trying to do something. Has anyone any ideas on what the issue could be please
  18. All the other doors work fine, by key and remote, but drivers door stays locked. Once you open it from inside it relocks itself a while later (don't know how long, occasionally it doesn't, but mostly does. Any ideas? Done all the reprogramming tricks but made no difference. Thanks in advance
  19. Hey ! so basically my first car at the age of 22 was the 2000 ford focus ghia with the 130hp 2.0 zetec lump. i had a crash that resulted in my front bumper and crash bar being destroyed and i then proceeded to put on a facelift bumper and mk2 headlights with the crash bar from the mk2 to keep the car roadworthy etc and everything went great ! colour matched the bumper, tinted the fog lights yellow and lowered the car on 35mm Apexi springs with the st170 drop-links on the front and standard shocks all round. i absolutely love the car but the state of the rear bushings meant that the nearside rear wheel was off and the whole rear end crabbed off to the right when rolling anywhere. recently i have written off my beloved "gerty" (it was a very emotional day and i even said the words goodbye as i slowly walked past with a wobbly lip) and have acquired a 2002 mk1.5 1.4 focus CL due to both my crashed being in my first year and the second one bringing two separate claims. 1.4 is good on fuel and makes a nice noise but is gutless i would absolutely love to put my 2.0 engine in the place of this new 1.4 and proceed to lower this second focus on the same springs whil renewing all the bushings underneath as i am desperately infatuated with the way these cars handle when stiff :) the plan is to brace up this three door body with front and rear struts, convert it to run the brakes and wheel hubs from the ghia and transfer some trim along with the clocks and trip computer with the engine. in an ideal world i would have all the central locking brought over as well but i just dont know what is possible at this stage and how much i would be looking to spend. i plan on keeping this car for 2-3 years and driving it with appropriate vigor. so basically.......... can anybody help me pretty please ?

    Reprogramming key?

    Hi Guys, Really simple question here. I recall seeing somewhere either on this forum or a different site that it is possible to program the MK2.5 central locking key to double lock the car when you hit the lock button once (instead of the standard - twice within 3 seconds). There was something to do with holding down two of the buttons at the same time for a couple of seconds but I just cant remember and for the life of me I can't find instructions anywhere! I recently got into the habit of double locking so I can see the indicators flashing from a distance to let me know the car is locked. Any help is appreciated!
  21. The central locking on my 98 focus is playing up. Sometimes when i unlock the drivers door, it doesn't do the rest. I either have to slam the door a few times or just wait, 5 mins or so. Any ideas ?
  22. First of all, hello, all! I bought a 2004 streetKA yesterday at a bargain price. I was made aware that the central locking only worked with the key in the door. I took the car anyway and decided to get as far as I could before seeking advice...So, here goes! 1 - The key fob communicates with the car. 2 - Pressing the lock button causes the passenger side to lock, then unlock; drivers door remains silent; no lights flash. 3 - the key in the drivers door locks both doors. 4 - the key in passenger door locks the passenger door, then unlocks again. 5 - if I press the lock button on the key fob, whilst simultaneously, manually locking the drivers door causes the lights to flash, as the manual says, to show that the central locking has worked. 6 - if I disconnect the drives door like/trunk wiring and then press lock on the key fob, the lights flash and the passenger door locks. 7 - at no point has the alarm seemed to arm. It has not sounded or given me any indication that it's on. That's as detailed as I have been with diagnostics. Here are my queries: Would this have an affect on the alarm system not arming or am I looking at separate issues? (I've changed fuse 33, still nothing) How do I get the locking motor out of the door and where is it? I'm no electrician but with your guys' help, I might be able to solve the alarm problem! Thanks in advance! Perry
  23. Hi, I've just bought a Ford Fusion 2 2004 and it only came with 1 key (the one with the blue thing in the top corner) I ordered a replacement central locking door key on ebay and tried to code it the car using the instructions in the owners handbook which goes something like: "turn the ignition from 2 to 0 four times in 6 seconds, you will then here a chime sound and the this means the car is in program mode" the problem is I'm following this instruction perfectly but I'm not getting the chime sound at the end. does anyone know what's up with it? Cheers
  24. Hi all, I hope you are well. Recently I have been having issues with the double locking on my ST. Pressing the button once works every time, but the double lock only works when it feels like it and it seems to be getting worse and worse! I got a new fob battery off eBay thinking it potentially hasn't been changed in 7 years but i still have the same problem. It used to work when i would unlock the doors then re-lock it again but I was at Tesco the other day unlocking and re-locking hoping the double lock would kick in, must have looked a right lemon! Don't know if this means anything but i tried locking the car while i was inside to see what was going on and the doors lock fine but when i press the button again for the double lock I would just hear a click noise come from the dash to the right of the steering wheel but nothing happened! Has anyone had or heard of this problem? Did a bit of Googling and found a few forum posts with instructions to put the key in the lock turn it a few times, press some buttons. blah blah, i will try this on my lunch break at work and see if it works but I wanted to run it by you guys and girls first as I don't want to "reset" my key or anything! Just baffles me that the doors lock fine its just not having the double lock! Thank you! Alex.
