My 147's doors won't lock....

Hi everyone, my 1st post! Please be gentle

Bought an 02 147 1.6 120bhp Lusso a couple of months ago, it's been fun and "mostly reliable" till now....

My central locking is acting up. The remote will set and switch off the alarm but will not lock the doors. The lock button on the dash won't work. Tried to lock them with the key but that won't work either. Tried on both doors but the key won't turn to the left. Brought it to a local mechanic for a diagnosis (Not an Alfa specialist, the nearest to me is around 100miles away!). He plugged it in and the diagnostics came up as normal. Oh, and i can hear a faint clicking from behind the drivers side dash when i press lock on the remote.

Came home this evening and searched a couple of threads, disconnected the battery to try and reset everything, that didn't work either! I'm at a total loss here, any ideas or help would absolutely wonderful!

This is happening to me I have checked everything but I think it might be a duff battery I still have the original after 8 year if it isn't it could be the the locking motors have burned out. But to be perfectly honest I'm at the end of my tether with this car I'm thinking of getting rid.

Did either of you find any cure to this?
If so, explain in detail please!
