    Confused Please Help!

    I have just replaced my alternator (2.5 v6) what a nightmare, finally put car back together and runs fine but central locking doesnt work at all,

    Car locks and unlocks with door lock,

    Is this because i had the battery disconnected for 2 days (had to wait for right alternator to be delivered)

    How do i go about making it work again?

    Also done a service whilst changing alternator, Only problem is now how do i delete the word "service" from dash display?

    Regards

    Jamie

    there should be a resyncing procedure in your manual but from memory it goes something like this -

    turn the ignition on
    hold in the lock button on the keyfob
    turn ignition off
    close door and press lock on the key

    could be right, could be wrong but only going from memory and reading similar posts .. re the service, again it should tell you in your manual but if you do a google search for "b6 service reset" or something similar you should find results.

    its because you have had the battery off

    insert the key turn the ignition on dont start it press lock then unlock on the fob and all should work

    to remove the service press and hold the service button (spanner) then turn on the ignition then hit the 00 next to the service button and it will reset it...it will take a few days before it starts counting down again

    your one touch windows will have stopped too you need to press and hold the button down and keep it down for a few seconds after the window has dropped then back up again and hold the button up for a few seconds then they should work fine
