Re: central locking

you will find there is a a sticking solenoid or mehanics within the door, or possibly dodgey position sensors within the solenoid.

This is fairly common and genuine solenoids can be costly, I replaced all mine with an aftermarket setup, and never had a problem, alternatively, if they only ever use keyless entry, disconnect the position sensor wires off the solenoids, this may solve the problem.

Re: central locking

Yeah check the lock linkages, mine does this too but that's because the passenger side front striker plate is out of line and I haven't fixed it yet :/
