    Default Intermittent Central locking

    Howdy peeps! only just getting to grips with the Vectra after only having it 2 days now! Annoyingly, the central locking has a mind of its own, sometimes it will work sometimes it doesn't, and sometimes when it locks/unlocks it doesn't do the drivers door an i end up having to use the key???

    Anyone else got/had this? any solutions?

    and also, I don't think the boot unlocks with the central locking as I always have to open it with the key. The button on either front door with a boot symbol, (guessing it pops the boot)? all it does is beep when pushed???

    Any light shed on these issues will be grrrrrrrrrreat

    the beeping is normal on the boot buttons on the front doors... does the same on mine... doesn't pop the boot it just disengages the lock electronically so that you can open it just by pressing and lifting the boot lid with the button...

    Hmmmmm think ive got an electrical fault of some sort then...

    When i do the unlock button on the fob, 9 times out of 10 all it does is turn the dash lights and rear number plate lights on an doesn't actually unlock the doors? i have to put the key in the door to open them, an that too doesn't always open all the doors? and pushing the boot button on the door makes a boot but it doesnt unlock it, also have to use the key to open the boot??

    Sounds like the central locking in knackered, I had the same problem on my peugeot 206, although a completely different car i'm sure all the central locking work the same way. I needed new locks and rewiring to solve the problem. Get the codes read, it might come up with something. My wifes golf central locking is mad, with hers you press the button once for drivers door and 2nd for the other doors yet when you do this sometimes is will do one door, others 2, you have to press it a few times to unlock all the doors. When i had the codes read on her car is came up saying there was an electrical fault on 2 of the doors.

    Right.... turns out the lock button on my fob was broken so done a temp fix???

    it now locks and unlocks every time but doesn't do the drivers door, sometimes it does but sometimes it doesn't? would that suggest the electrical sender that Crispy mentioned, also the boot wont unlock regardless!! have to use key every time without fail... same prob as drivers door or 2 separate issues?

    and to save making another thread, how can i test the alarm to see if its working??
