    Default Megane II Central locking fault

    Hi,
    Re: Megane II Central locking fault
    the central locking system stopped working, that is both key/cards fail to unlock or lock the car. The card reader is working fine both cards start the car. It's not a battery problem both cards have new batteries. Anyone got any idea of what the problem might be, and how to fix it? Hoping it is not the UHC unit as this costs $1000, plus fitting costs! Searched the forum history and could not find anything ;-(
    Thanks in advance,
    Tim

    Before thinking about expensive computers, I would be checking the simple and more likely possibilites of a fuse or relay, etc.

    And if all the system seems to be ok, firstly try disconnecting the battery overnight, which may reset whatever is causing the fault.
    (Make sure you know the radio reset code).

    If it is convenient to get to dealer, maybe something will show up on diagnostics.

    Is there a manual switch on the dash (or drivers door) which manually locks/unlocks the doors - this would at least prove the electro-mechanical bits are working or not.

    Good luck.

    Your first step is to stop asking the dealer about parts...

    It's not just the usual microswitch failure?
