Alfa GTV V6

Central Locking problem/Boot won't shut - Please help!!

Hi again,

My girlfriend has just got home to find that she cannot lock our GTV V6. Apparently when she tries to activate the central locking the buttons keep popping up and won't lock. She also cannot lock the boot. Apparently it will not shut as it appears that the boot lock is engaged. I suggested trying to press the button in the glovebox which is not doing anything. She also cannot unlock the boot lock with the key.

We'd be really grateful if anyone can suggest any way of getting the boot lock and central locking working again. It was working perfectly yesterday.

Thanks so much in advance for any help.

Try using the key to lock the doors. Sometimes the locks stick on one of the doors preventing them from staying locked/unlocked. Using the key manually should overcome this. You will probably have to re-sync the alarm by using the remote to set the alarm on. Hope this helps, it has happened to me numerous times.
