Question Disconecting central locking

As i have a problem with my locks unlocking themselves, especially in hot weather, i was woundering if there was a way to disconect the central locking thingy (so locks are locked and unlocked manually) without pulling the actual c/lock system out.
I will eventually get round to fixing them, but in meantime I want to be able to come back form work, or whatever, without my car being unlocked. If anyone knows how to do this, if possible, could u let us know.

Cheers, Jase

.....my cars a EA Series1 Ghia, if that makes any diff

I'm told this is a common EA-EL problem, but I have no idea of the cause or the solution. MADNC_8 recommends this is a job for an auto electrician.

Is there a central locking fuse? If so, just pull it out. Not being an aniversary model, it just has normal locks not tibbe locks, so they can be used normally.

i remember this being said on the radio.
it was a factory problem for a few batches of falcons.
they just said that ford had 'recalled' them.
you were ment to bring the car back to ford, and they would fix it for you for free.

i'm not sure if they will still do it for free now.
i doubt it

Well when my car was serviced at ford a few months ago, they said that there was a problem with my 4spd which was a factory fault and was entitled to have it fixed under warranty. But further investigation proved that my auto was not in the effected batch. So ford must be still fixing stuff under warranty on the EA's.

Central locking

Papa smurf, in my 88 Fairmont Ghia there is a fuse for the central locking which when removed returns it to a manual locking system.
After hearing a strange noise near my car I noticed the cab was full of smoke and the servos were going ballistic. They get hot very quickly and started to fry the harness. I removed the fuse and all is well.

My EB sometimes does weird shit with the central locking after being left in the rain for a few hours. When unlocking it will go up and down for a while and then stop in the locked position. Just have to time it so you grab the doorhandle when the lock is in the up position.
Don't leave it in the rain much these days.

Kevs EA, where about is this fuse? Is it in with the SL Suspension, trip comp, and indicator, etc, ones are?
I've had a poke around and pulled out a few fuses, but so far have only managed to reset my clock.....

Thanks for the replys

Jase

central locking

Jase, from memory the fuse is labelled "central locking" on the index on the fuse box cover. Its in with all the others. When removed it only affects the central locking mechanism.
