6 Reasons why your central locking may not be working.
Central locking in a car plays a big part in our daily routines and is easily a over looked necessity.
Sometimes these can stop working and leave us in a pickle. Here are some common reasons to why
central locking not working.
Reason no.1 which is often the case in many scenarios and is the simplest to fix. That is to replace
the battery in your car key for a new one. There are many guides online like YouTube were you can
find how to remove the battery from your key and replace it with a new one.
Reason no.2 would be that the metal battery clips in the key that normally touch the battery and
makes connection to the circuit board and allows power to go to board. The clips may not be
touching the battery or it may not be touching the points on the circuit board which is not
completing the circuit. You can bend the metal clips to shape them to try and get a better
connection with the battery and also the circuit board points. Although in other cases the clips may
be missing all together.
Reason no.3 the key remote may need re-syncing to your car. This could be due to the battery being
out of your key for too long or it could be because you have not used your Remote Key for a while. In
some cases especially on older cars you can manually try to re-sync your key in you also can find
guides for programming procedures online such as forums, YouTube etc. If it can’t be done manually
you can try to program it diagnostically you can get an auto locksmith like our selves to get the job
done. Alternatively you could try and find some one with the right equipment for example a garage.
Reason no.4 could be that the fuse for the central lock in your car may have gone. To check for this
look in your car manual and try locate were the fuse box is. Look at the diagram to see which fuse is
for the central locking. Remove the fuse for the central locking and test it if you can with a multi-
meter if not go somewhere you can get it tested. If you can’t try buying a replacement fuse and
putting it in and see if that does the trick.
Reason no.5 is also a big reason to why the central locking may not be working. That is the buttons
on your circuit board are worn or broken so you have nothing to click to complete the the circuit.
These buttons can be replaced by unsoldering your existing damaged buttons and re-soldering them
with brand new ones. Also it is recommended to replace your car key case if it is quite worn. Here at

Reason no.6 it could just be that your circuit board is damaged all together. The reasons may be you
have dropped it and the board has managed to crack, a component has broken off or you have
dropped it in water making it water damaged. Whatever the problem may be we can help. Here at
