Question about 2006 Mitsubishi Colt
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.

Testimonial: "Very helpful answer and a prompt response. Thanks"
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.
