    1994 MODEL Ive just bought this car and the central locking is very tempremental.
    The central locking does not lock or unlock from the drivers door, the key will only work the drivers door from this lock.
    The passenger door and boot will both attempt and eventually do lock and unlock the locks on the boot and passenger door, however this is after it has a strange few moments of locking and unlocking.

    I have taken the panels of both doors and cannot see any obvious signs of loose wires etc, i have also checked for split wires in the boot as I found a thread on here about it but there doesnt appear to be any.

    Does any else have or had this problem?
    Any help would be much appreciated

    Could be work actuators or a faulty CL module. Also check the passenger footwell for damp, if it is wet lift it up and check the wiring that runs underneath.
