Centeral Locking gone spastic

Hi all.

Does anyone know why my centeral locking in the AU falcon would have gone spastic.

Wot it does.
1. Try to lock the doors, it will unlock them for you. sometimes interior light will turn off others not.
2. Lock holding passenger door handel open and will lock, unlock rapidly and when out of car will lock properly.

Any ideas

Do a search on it, I remember seeing a discussion on this problem recently.

It' seither bent snipper rod or the knob at the top of the snipper rod is displaced. Check front doors one will have more resistance in lifting snipper button.

make sure all the doors are closed properly - if one is adjar it will unlock all of them, and as above - if one of the lock rods or door handle rods are sticking in their travels the doors wont lock properly.

as far as i know if you lock the doors with a handle up it wont lock either...thats not a fault its done on purpose
