Both fobs are unusable due to buttons wearing away so was getting by using the key in drivers door until last week.Now the only door I can unlock is the drivers door.the boot is accessable with the key.The passenger door can't be opened from inside or out even after manually pulling up the lock button.also the fuel cap door doesn't open.so far I have swapped all 4 fuses that are listed in the manual in relation to central locking and I have had the battery leads off for an hour in hope of so kind of reset but had no luck

I would be testing , checking , replacing if needed the relays related to central locking . Could also pull the drivers door trim and spray , soak lock linkage with WD 40 in case sticking and not fully operating the central locking actuator .

Thanks.I have finally got it sorted.i had to get in to the bcm housing located Infront of the fire wall next to the battery and then I swapped out the locking related relays with the rear wiper relay until it worked.i was then expecting to of lost the use of the rear wiper but as luck would have it it is still working.
