not sure if its the right place to post this, but i'm having issues with my remote central locking,

When locking, sometimes it works sweet, and then some times the drivers door wont lock properly, the button just goes half down and you cant open the door slightly then it catches.
The rest of the time it tries to lock cant and then the horn beeps a few times quickly.

When unlocking it either works fine, or it wont unlock the drivers door.

Locking unlocking with the key is fine.
Boot opening on the remote is sweet.

when u'r unlocking with the remote u'r relying on the solenoid on the door actuator to unlock the door, and when u use the key its a physical movement, i would assume the solenoid in the door lock is on its way out, if it stops working get a replacement from ford, i do not know of any1 at the moment who overhauls door lock actuators. ford have since changed door lock suppliers, so if u get a new 1 be sure to get the addapting wiring loom as well.

Mine did that, it was a broken actuator. I *think* the older B-series used plastic parts and the new ones have metal parts that arn't as prone to breaking as the earlier ones.

when you say actuator do you men the arm that is driven by the solenoid movement or the actual solenoid.

Might have to get in touch with Darren from FTG to get a spare, i can't stand fords prices on replacement parts.

do you mean the actual solenoid or the actuator arm?

So were the older style solenoids on the piss a bit?
