    Default Strange issue with Central Locking

    I have a Vectra C 2.0 T 2005 Elite, I have recently had the front wheel hub replaced to solve an ABS issue and a Turbo Valve for another issue. Since it came back from the garage I have a message on the computer saying that the Key Fob Battery needs replacing, I only replaced it a couple of months ago so I change it again anyway. My central locking wont unlock any other door other than the drivers door. I reset the fob by putting in the ignition and holding the lock button for 20 seconds then I managed to lock and unlock all the doors then I tried it again and it locked all the doors but only opened the drivers door again.

    Now if OI manually pull up the door locks then the fob will lock the car but again only opens the drivers door .... I am bemused any help appreciated.

    Regards

    Neil

    Peadar,

    Sorry if I am being thick but looked through a thread called Vectra Secrets but I can see anything related to my issue with the Central Locking. Is it possible to add a link as I searched on Vectra Secrets and found the thread but it was on about things I already knew like the number plate light coming on and the windows going up and down when yo u hold the lock button etc.

    Thanks in advance for further assistance.

    Cheers

    Neil

    Was your car previously set to unlock all doors with one push on the remote button?

    The remote can be programmed as thus, one push only unlocks the drivers door, two pushes unlocks all the doors and fuel flap. Maybe that's what the garage have done?

    See if the following helps

    Thanks Dave, I my remote is different to the picture as it just has three buttons on the key, but I am sure it use to open the drivers door with one push and then the rest of the doors with the second push.....but I can push it until I am blue in the face nothing else opens other than the drivers door. I will read this when I get home later and try it out.... Thanks for the help so far.

    Cheers

    I went to try Dave's instructions last night and before I could do any of them I tried the central locking again and it now all works perfectly..... I am really confused although pleased its all working.

    I did have a flat battery which need to be jumped so I wonder if that affected the locking system and it just needed time to reset as I hadn't tried it since the jump start.

    Anyway thanks for help and just pleased its all working although nervous it could come back mysteriously

    Thanks Again

    Neil
