confused Central Locking

Hello everyone

My car is posessed so I will try to explain this in a logical manner.
If i unlock my door from the drivers side with the key, the central locking goes nuts and will go up and then down.

If I unlock from the passenger side with the key or the interior door handle the it works fine and just unlocks.

If I unlock the car when I am in it using the button on the dash it will also go up and down.

The bottom line is that I can only unlock and lock the car properly from the passenger door?

Any ideas

My EFII did this sort ofthing too
just as i traded it, as luck would have it
they traced a wire shorting out underthe dash area
took them 2 days to find it
Glad i had traded and had my new car
phew
Mine would go up and down , then eventually blow a fuse

I would say the snipper rod on the passenger door is bent and binding; the up down bit happens when the lock solonoid can't open the passenger door lock; when you open it manually with the key it isn't a problem. If you pull the snipper button on the window sill up and down you'll most likely find the passenger's side is stiffer and harder to move. If you are lucky the plastic knob on top of the snipper rod may either have unscrewed, been screwed too far down or the plastic surround in the door trim might be broken.

My ED had the same problem. I couldn't lock it any way I tried (Smartlock, inside button etc) and could only lock it by the key in the passenger door. I took the lock off, locked all the doors and then stuck the tibbe lock back down really hard onto the rod - if ya get what I mean!!?
