central locking problem

Post by caroline70 on Sun Jun 11, 2017 4:41 pm

I noticed that my central locking on my 1995 Trident was only locking the front passenger door and not the driver's door. My Dad took the door trim off and removed the actuator and tested it with a 12 volt supply. The actuator retracted so he assumed that the problem is with the wiring. Obviously, the fuse is OK as one door locks and unlocks correctly. There was no obvious problem with the wiring in the door. Any suggestions where to look next?

My Topaz has the same fault, but haven't had time to check it out.

In a 1995 vehicle the cabling from door to vehicle will have been bent many times as the door is opened and closed. There is a limit to how much bending a cable can stand and it may surface in the symptom you describe.         Keith
