G'day guy's my central locking seems to be up the wazzoo, it started playing up so far I've determined, 3 fualty actuaors.
any replaced, them, and one of the rear ones, is out of sync, it's unlocking when it should be locking, visa versa.
Anywaycanybody sort of explain this, as from what I can tell the sytem, should automatically work itself out. :roll:
So seems like it's getting the wrong signal.

Swap these two wires: Yellow w/black stripe and Red w/yellow stripe, just swap them with each other as those tell it wether to lock or unlock.

Plus the rears operate in reverse to the fronts - i.e. fronts extend (unlock, snipper up), backs retract, and vice versa.
Best to have all door trims off, disconnect actuators from linkages, and check their operation.
Might then unplug them all electrically and connect one by one, test operating each.
Then take it from there.

i replaced my brother inlaws outer door handles in his ed with el ones, when i put the lock mechanism and actuators back in to the passenger rear door i put the rod in the wrong hole, it made that door unlock when the others locked and visa versa. i just removed the actuator and swapped the rod into the other hole and it fixed it, all locked and unlocked fine then.
was all working fine before we pulled it apart.
