Re: Help! ED Central Locking Problems!!!
diagnosis on these requires componant removal.
First remove the drivers window, 2x 10mm head bolts, tip the window forward and it will come out.
(you do this so you can get back in easily!)
next remove the central locking actuator.
next disconnect the key lock (barrel) lock.
As you are doing the above, take note of where they connect and how they operate.
Now test the locking mechanism with the flush button only.
at all the next steps you may need to make adjustments.
Whilst little adjustment is provided, (door handle only) you need to bring each componant back into play one at a time.
when one fails that is probably your faulty componant.
this may be a little hap-hazard but am trying to relay 15 years experience into several parragraphs.
When you test each item do it like this....
Door open, use a screwdriver to push the latch into the closed position, test inner door lock. If it fails, then unclip the door handle and retest. If it passes, push the door handle rod gently to the stop reclip and retest. If it passes, then unlatch the catch and retest with a door closed situation.
It is very hard to describe, but it may be as simple as the door has been slammed too many times and the catch may need bringing out.
when you get to testing the central locking actuator, you leave it disconnected at first, use the screwdriver to close the catch (you need to present the alarm with a door closed situation) press the buttons and ensure it does what it is supposed to.
ummm.....bloody hard to explain in typed text
