    Hi all,

    my central locking has decided to stop working completely. If i use the key... it only locks the front door i put it in... but the others remain open.

    I also have a foxguard alarm fitted and if i use that... the only door it locks/unlocks is the drivers side..

    it happened all of a sudden, so i suspect a fuse... but would a fuse cause this?

    Any ideas would be great before i pay some moeny to have it fixed!

    Cheers,

    Tom

    Bad connection maybe? You checked all the fuses under the bonnet?

    Def check ALL the fuses.... my angel on N/S and N/S/R tail light stopped working, along with the central locking....

    Randomly. the cig lighter fuse had blown, changed this and hey presto!!

    Cant figure how they are linked, but it sorted it!!!

    I'm not sure if this is excessive, but maybe the ZKE module is faulty? I take it you have electric windows ... have you tried the auto closure part of the locking system? Drop all your windows down, lock the drivers door and hold the key in the lock position to check if all the windows go up.
