Drivers door locking problem
#1
Hello I am having a problem with my drivers door lock, the key don't always open it, sometimes it will and sometimes it won't, for speed I find I have to now unlock the passenger door then pull up the drivers door lock to get in the van.

When drivers door does work the whole van locks open or close.
The center button for central locking works fine for all doors.
the key fob is broken no buttons so can't use that.
passenger door and boot can be manually open/shut with a different key then the drivers door lock.

Any advice?

Sounds like the driver's side lock is faulty or worn, or maybe the key is also worn? Can you get a new key fob and swap the insides?

Above + possible wires broken in the door loom at the hinges.

You can quite easily and very cheaply (via ebay) get a new fob and fit you existing metal key into it. I recently did mine. I had to epoxy glue the metal part of the key into the new fob, but that was easy enough. Also NOTE WELL, there is a tiny transponder inside the fob, as well as the little circuit board. I didn't know this and had to route around in the bin to get my old fob back to swap this tiny "thingy" to the new fob. All good now Smile Cool

I know this ^^^ is not the answer to your door lock problem, but it might be summat you didn't know.
