    Hi all.

    Only today this has happened, went to lock car and driverside door wouldnt go. All other doors lock but this one.

    Had to put key in. And same for unlock.

    It only happened today but i've noticed few weeks lately when locking it sounds "tired" if that makes sense?

    Any help greatly appreciated and I hope i've titled correctly.

    Sounds like the door actuator/solenoid has failed. They are about £50 from GSF
