I have a 1.2 vauxhall corsa srxi, recently the drivers door refuses to open or lock with the push button on the key, though it does open with the key.

Have tried all the 'fixes' in the manual to no avail. :dunno: has anyone got any ideas how to sort this.

Was one of those fixes changing the battery in the key fob?

Pop into Halfords or the like and they'll sort you out with a new battery and they might even help you open it up to change it.

check the multi plug on the door pillar iirc pull the tag and twist to release and plug it back in, door card off and check the voltage at the solenoid when open/closing via the fob if there is voltage the solenoid is knackered, If not check the wiring back to the lock control box what's behind the drivers kick panel

My mind is a bit fuzzy as its been a while since I had my Corsa C (owned a Nova, Corsa B, C and D )

Apologies for slow reply flash22, will do all the checks that you mentioned, but would you believe the damn door unlocked this morning and is still working normally. :wtf: Obviously there is something not quite right, these intermittent problems are the pits.

My Skoda had its final journey this week, 1 of its faults was the back doors locked and not unlocking, there were a few other faults that made it not worth fixing

have a read of this thread - 3 doors open with the fob the drivers door does not - but it is working now - so its a intermittent fault - more than likely wiring or solenoid is at fault due to age
