central locking not working

Hello all,
I'm new here, can anyone help me, my wife's car, doesn't have remote locking, it just works off a key. The central locking started playing up intermittantly, now doesn't work at all. The key unlocks the drivers door, but no other door, or the boot. Is this a common fault, and any ideas what causes this fault that I can fix ? The Gets is a 55 plate GRTD.
Cheers
Tonygnu

As he stated there is no remote, so that is not the issue.

There are two possibilities happening here:

1) Your driver's door lock actuator (the one that signals the other doors to open or close when you lock/unlock using key in driver's door), may be with false contacts. This will require some knowledge as the door may have to be disassbled (inluding glass removal) so actuator can be removed for inspection or repair.

2) The system is governed by two relays, located behind the passenger compartment fuse box (see attached service manual pages). One or both of this relays may be failing or with false contacts. Proceed as instructed in service manual pages for checking this relays and the power door locks contacts.

Hello Robert B,
I couldnt find the relays, I had my head everywhere looking for them, I did as it said from the file that you sent me, the only relays I could see were blue ones plugged into the back of the fuse board, but these didnt match the picture in the file that you gave me. So I decided to look at the door actuator. When I unplugged the 6p connector from the actuator, it shows 6 pins, on mine I only have 4pins, the pin in the middle top and bottom are blank, so I couldnt check for continuity as it says on the first page. The locks all lock, off the drivers door key at the mo, but dont unlock, just the drivers door unlocks off the key. When the plug is unplugged and I put a 12v supply to the actuator plug like it says on page BE-82, nothing happens. On the loom coming with the 6p plug on ( the one that is coming from inside the vehicle) I have 12v across 2 of the pins ( pins 1 and 3). If I put a 12v supply on pins 4 and 5 will this tell the rest of the car to unlock, is that what these 2 pins are for?
Hope Ive written this so it can be understood, can you or anyone help me.
Cheers
Tonygnu

This is sure bugging. One of our daughters' Getz is wired exactly as yours, and is having similar problems, but worst, because in our case, the locks "sometimes" lock and "sometimes" unlock", randomly and not specific to each of the five locks (4 drs + boot).

Our problem just started last week and I am stumbled upon discovering the car's wires are different from the service manual. In the meantime, I have disconnected the driver's door plug, so the whole system is disabled. We do not want any doors to remain unlocked while thinking they are locked, until this problem is sorted out.

Next weekend I will try deeper to figure out what is going on here. If no success, then I'll have to get to the dealer's shop, since I've contacted a couple of independent "electric" shops and both told me that the problem is withing the door's actuators themselves, from bad and loose contacts inside and there is no way to fix this because they are sealed units. Both told me that the door actuators have to be replaced and that is a very expensive option.

I will post again my findings and let you know.

Well, no luck after going through all 4 doors and boot. Now its off to the hyundai dealer's shop. First call and talk to the guys suggest the first diagnosis is right on. The actuators may be too worn out (contacts) and may need new actuators, which are very expensive since they are sealed units with include the doors latches and locks. Besides, replacing the actuators means the door mechanisms including the glass will have to be removed, making this labor very expensive and time consuming.

I'll let you know how it goes.
