Hi new to the forum, and im having problems with the central locking on my 51 plate Punto 1.2 8v passenger door, sometimes it will activate the central locking and sometimes it wont, the drivers door lock works fine, any ideas what could be causing this problem, cheers Dave

If it doesn't even put the button down on the pass door when locking from pass side it likely to be mechanical(lock?)the fact it locks from drivers side rules out wiring fault...i'd remove door panel & check all linkage rods are ok,if so sounds like morot/latch assembly(comes as one part)....does the button go down on the pass door when locking from pass side?
