146 1.6 boxer

can't lock my car

my car 146 1.6 boxer got no alarm only central locking via key

when i turn the key to lock it will kick back to unlock (from driver's side) . after i did that for few times it will lock only driver's door. i have to manually lock every door from inside and using key for the driver's side to lock the car.
few times also this things happened, while i'm driving the car - the central locking will lock & unlock few times about 4-5 seconds.

any advice / help ?

I had a similar problem on my 147, it was the body computer that needed to be replaced

Re: can't lock my car

It has been the body computer before, but more commonly it's a faulty central locking motor, and the drivers door is the prime suspect. Mine does it in cold weather, but I just live with it as it's not as bad as yours, it kicks back when you ues the fob button, but then using the blade locks it again.
