    What happens if you unlock the car with the key in the door?
    have you had the drivers door panel off at all?

    ive just been out to the car and it all seems to work fine with the key in the door, my key fob isnt doing anything though. if my battery was nearly flat in the controller could that of coursed anything, very long shot but you never no.

    Looking at your other thread this could be the problem possibly a bad connection or earth point but tbh i dont know much about central locking. You could try the batteries in the fob if thats not working now then you need them anyway so its worth a go hope this helps.

    No i ment have you taken the drivers door panel off recently before the problem started?

    So basicly everything is working fine if you dont use the key fob? if you open the door with the key, start the car and drive, everything is fine.

    Did you get 2 key fobs with the car plus a garage key or just one fob?

    id change the siren itself.... the back up batteries leak acid on the circuit board inside and it causes all sorts of problems!

    Just looked in my Haynes and there is no mention of a central locking ecu, does mention a central locking switch intergrated with the electric window switch located inside the drivers door internal handle. Hope this helps.
