Passenger side central locking and electric window

Seems that I left the passenger side door unlocked all night the other night becuase the fecking thing wont work! [V] The lock still works but just wont lock and unlock from the central locking! The window on that side wont work either! I have had a look at all the fuses, they seem fine, had a look at the haynes manuel but wasnt sure if it could be a relay that has gone? Does anyone know which relay it is for the passenger side electrics? I dont know much about relays so could that be the cause? The switch for the window is fine, swapped it with the drivers side to check and it still works. Has anyone got any idea what could be the problem? It just seems dodgy that it is the passenger side door that all the electrics have gone on. Im reluctant to take it to a garge because it will no doubt be something I can do myself and I dont want to start forking out if I can sort it myself?

Anyone got any ideas?:)

Check out the cables in the rubber boot between the door and the frame near the hinges - sounds like you may have lost a wire or two in there. They will go occasionally due to the bending when you open the doors.

Check under the dash right next to the door and you should see a big + screw, unscrew it, this should release a black plastic part with a wiring block on it. make sure the connector block is ok and secure, no loose wires etc.

Cheers lads, checked everything out, seems to have been a plug that wasnt clicked into place properly. :D Or so I thought...

The central locking isnt working properly now. When I use the drivers side doorlock the plunger goes down and the boot locks but the lock on the passenger side door doesnt go down and causes the other locks to unlock. The only way to lock the car is to lock the car on the passenger side lock but this doesnt work 100% of the time, sometimes does the same as if I had locked the door on the drivers side. :(:(:(:(:(

It's going in to a garage on Friday to be sorted but if anyone has any idea what it could be to save me some I would be very much appreciative! :)
