    Central locking issue

    Evening all, friend of mine is having problems with his transporter and Iím trying to help him. He was driving along and all of the doors locks suddenly became stuck in a position which isnít locked nor unlocked. The key seems to be opening and closing the doors using the remote i.e the lights are flashing but the lock arenít doing anything. He also smelt a burning smell from the back and front of the van however no fuses have blown! Have checked the obvious things like convenience module and the wires under the drivers seat but unfortunately the problem isnít fixed. Has anyone had this problem? Any help appreciated. Thanks James

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    You friend with this Transporter should post their selves as we have no car spec for which year.

    You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

    Hello KeithUK. Appreciate youíre reply. Unfortunately my friend is in his 70s and isnít used to computers, I have been a member of forums in the past and still am today and find them a great place to find out information. I have scanned his transporter and havent pulled up any faults regarding central locking. I will try again next time I see him, I was just hoping someone could shed some light? Thanks.

    Is the vehicle modified as they often are? The best start would be a specialist and a fault code read.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
