Hello,


Thank you for choosing “Just Answer” for your query. Yes, I can help you.


Based on your description, I suspect a problem with the central locking control module. These are all systems controlled by that control module.


The first thing I would check would be to remove any floor mat you may have on the driver’s side and feel the carpet. If it’s wet, you have a water intrusion issue. You should also feel the carpet in the rear as that tends to be a lower area. Usually when water is in the driver’s (left) side, it gets in through the bonded windshield seal (glue) from a improperly replaced windshield. The central locking control unit is located under the carpet immediately in front of the driver’s seat. The carpet must be lifted, the box housing the controller must be removed, and the controller inspected for water intrusion. I have had luck taking the controllers apart and drying them out. But if it has been awhile it may require replacement. Also check the passenger (right) side. The controller for the automatic transmission (if so equipped) is housed at the passenger’s feet


If water intrusion is not the issue, I suggest you take the vehicle to a repair shop that has a scanner capable of interrogating the central locking control module and checking for any stored Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs). Further testing, diagnosis and repair would be based on any DTC(s) retrieved.


I hope that I have answered your questions and addressed your concerns. Should you have any further questions for me, please do not hesitate to ask. Positive feedback, referrals and bonuses are always APPRECIATED! If you accept MY answer please click on the "ACCEPT“ button by THIS answer.
