Central locking works by way of little electric motors that engages and disengages the door lock. The drivers door has an additional set of contacts in the actuator which signal the controller when it changes position. The controller activates the servo motors when a signal is received from the receiver or from the drivers door servo motor. So in your case I suspect the motor part of the drivers door actuator is done for.
To replace you will have to remove the inner driver's door panel to get at the actuator. The actuator itself cannot be repaired and needs to be replaced as a unit.

    My Mitsubishi Colt has just developed the same problem. I looked it up on the Colt workshop manual and it does seem that it may be the mechanical door lock actuator or damage to harness wires & connectors. Mine is going to have to go to a auto electrician or a Mitsubishi dealership (hopefully not the latter as they'll probably be a lot more exspensive!)

    I read somewhere that the actuator is in the door lock itself in a 2007 Colt. Anyone know if that's correct or if it's a separate unit? I need to buy one for a Japanese model and not sure what I'm looking for.

Had a similar problem today with an 07 cz2. Indicators stopped flashing when arming / disarming the alarm and the central locking stopped working via the key or by manually locking from the inside. Also when the ignition key was turned to position 1 or 2 the door locks clicked. I removed the door lock actuator and managed to strip it apart. It turned out that grease from the central locking motors has covered the electrical contacts and caused the problems. Cleaned them up with contact cleaner and a touch of WD40 and now all is well. So I recommened stripping the unit down before splashing out on a new one! - Mick T, Preston.

I have 2 problems with my 2006 plate mitsubishi colt 1.1. Firstly the engine light just came on and I was wondering what could cause it and secondly the remote central locking only unlocks the passenger...


The check engine light is a seperate issue from the inop. drivers door lock.A check engine light comes on after the PCM recognizes an input from any of the engines sensors 3 Key cycles or reading cycles while it is monitoring engines sensors.It could be as simple as an oxy.sensor out of spec to a low fuel tank pressure reading when you forget to put the gas cap back on after filling your tank.You need to have the car "scanned" for diagnostic trouble codes for the answer to the Check engine light". As for the inop. drivers door lock,it sounds like the lock solenoid stopped working and needs a replacement.Dealer,repair shop,or auto parts store can supply that fix.

The passenger door on Mitsubishi Colt 2007 won't lock using central locking


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the door lock actuator. It's the motor that locks and unlocks the door mechanism. Once replaced you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!

Just got a ford ka as the ford ka got cental locking


Hello,

Yes the ford has a central locking system, you can do that with your remote, and can do it when inside the car, the button is by the door which is at the driver side. You will see the central lock button, but central lock wont work if a door is open.

Take care and good luck

Can not lock car by key remote . toyota rav 4 53 plate


If your car has an alarm with a separate remote, it is a separate system and it is probably self-arming. When you lock the doors with the key central lock, the alarm gets armed by the RAV4 being OFF and the door locking action. When you unlock the doors with the key, the alarm is still armed because the key is not comunicating with the alarm just the cars factory keyless system.

Car alarm not activating central locking


It means that the remote is not passing the signal to the car . The alarm has triggered because the system has detected an illegal entry. Replace the remote batteries
