Central Locking

Guys,
As per one of my previous posts - I was advised to get a new battery as i had a problem with the car starting. Anyways bought the new battery and fitted.
All is kind of ish fine. The car starts, etc.. Which is the main thing i guess.

Though the problem after fitting the battery is that the central locking will not work. Also, when I manually press the door lock - all doors lock then after about 1 second they all open again.. The LED (the one that flashes for the alarm) is dimly but permanantly lit...not sure if this helps?

Thanks for any advice - at the moment I have disconnected the battery as I dont want to run this down by having that LED lit.

Sounds like you have a computer problem. Take it to the dealer.

It is highly unlikely that you will run the battery down with an LED. The amount of power they consume is absolutely miniscule.

The word 'politics' is derived from the word 'poly', meaning 'many', and the word 'ticks', meaning 'blood sucking parasites'.
