Central locking not working.

3 posts in this topic

The central locking is not working on my car. It has never worked and the guy I bought it from (who'd owned it for quite along time) didn't even realise it had central locking.

Normally no central locking at all (it's not doing a thing) has always lead me to the control unit above the speaker in the drivers foot well on cars I've had in the past but this time it has not proved to be the answer.

I took one off another car that definitely works and it has not cured the issue. I also popped the original unit back into the other car and it worked fine. I had the drivers door card off and the actuator is all plugged in. I have replaced all the fuses in the fuse box and everything else on that fuse works.

Does anyone have any other ideas about what could be stopping it from working?

Have you tried unplugging the actuators in turn? On my 525e the boot actuator was unplugged when I got it. When I plugged it in it caused all manor of erratic behaviour such as unlocking itself. A replacement solved it leading me to think it had an internal short.

If that cures it I have a load of spares.

Will try unplugging each actuator, hopefully it's the boot one or the petrol flap.
