TOPIC: Central Locking Possessed

Central Locking Possessed 5 years 9 months ago #76879

Help..... my cars possessed...:ohmy:

The central locking on my 05 PT has a mind of it\'s own. It opens & closes when it wants to. Driving, stopped , car turned off, etc, etc.

I have looked at previous threads which were posted a fair while ago, Also posts from american websites.
Looks like my only options are to:
1. Check the wiring around the motors, to check for any shorts or
2. replace the RKE module.

Does anyone else have any idea\'s or suggestions?

If I took it to a dealer to get a diagnostic done on the car would I be wasting my time? (& $$$)

If i have to replace the RKEM, I will have to get the dealer to re-programme the keys & the locking sequence?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Also (i forgot to ask)

My understanding that a door actuator is usually a solenoid in which an electrical charge either pushes or pulls say a rod. Why is it that when the door locks were doing crazy things this moring, it sounded more like a motor running ?

I can\'t help you with your dramas Andrew,
but in relation to your second post, some manufacturers (and I think in our PT case) do use small electric motors instead of solenoids.

For example 80\'s and 90\'s model BMWs used motors (and my previous German built Transit).
The PT locks seem to lock & unlock relatively \'smoothly\' which would suggest motors. Solenoids are usually a very sudden & loud locking action (eg. Toyota).

Kinda heard this before but just cant remember what the issue was.

How about locking the car with the key in the door barrell rather than using the remote and see what happens!

Also is it worh diconnecting the battery for some moments then reconnecting it!

Also just remembering back into the dark ages of my mechanical era I can remember the Fords had the same issue but it happened after wet weather. All they needed was WD40 sprayed on the door actuators and locks as the wet weather stopped the locks from locking fully and then they\'d unlock themselves again.
This does sound more electrical tho if its trying to lock itself again!

ps: If you go back onto the 2nd page of this \"Interior\" post there is some lengthy and informative posts put up re this subject. Hopefully it helps. Some are saying wiring in doors and others are saying an ECM unit in behind the radio!
