that´s it. central locking inside the car is all right.

i live in BraZIL so it´s better to do it here not from phone

Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

thanks for clarifying. Please check fuses if you have not.

If fuses are fine, then this would suggest a likely failure of the remote receiver antenna on the vehicle. A less likely possibility would be a fault with the footwell module which controls central locking, but this is unlikely because central locking inside the car works.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle...

where is located the antenna? As i have two same cars, i can test it. I don´t think is the footweel module as you said central locking is working. Fuses are ok.
