Exclamation Please Help--ED Falcon Central Locking

Hi folks,

Not happy Jan, just had my windows tinited on my ED Futura. Now the central locking is playing up, you press the button on the remote or use the key and the doors lock and then unlock straight away!! Any ideas on why this is happening?

Re: Please Help--ED Falcon Central Locking

Most likely the dorr buttons are down too far in the dorr trim. The motor thinks it is not going down far enough and then un locks again. The trick it figure oiut what door it is on. To get the buttons off, get a set of multi grups and a cloth. Just pull straight up to get them off and try reseating them. You may need to pull them off one at a time until you find the one that is the problem. Good luck. It can be tricky to get the buttons just right.

Re: Please Help--ED Falcon Central Locking

BE CAREFULL doing this!

First wind down your windows!

You need to squeeze the front and rear sides of the button...as in respect to front and rear of the car.

Once you have the buttons off, use a small flat blade to ensure the nylon clamps are fully extended, then flex them 'open' a little more.

Lock the door, slide it on as far as you can, and give it a thump with the palm of your hand to finish it.

Many people omit this last step, and end up with your problem.

Cheers
Jas

Install the buttons while the key is in the lock and held (turned) firmly in the lock position. This ensures the rod is as far down as it can be to stop the buttons being put on too far.

cool Re: Please Help--ED Falcon Central Locking

All fixed, took the car back to the window tint guys and they fixed the problem. As mentioned by someone else, the buttons had been put on incorrectly and were pushed down too far. It was a 2 minute job. All they had to do was remove the 2 front door buttons, lock the doors and them put the buttons back on, with a small tap to seat them correctly!!

Thanks for the folks that answered my question and gave their advice/tips, much appreciated
