  1. Meriva B Rear Lock Problem

    Car Audio / Electrical / Security / Diagnostic Rel
    HI All, Recently had to get the rear door lock replaced on a Meriva B 2010 model, the garage replaced it fine but they were unable to get the ******* door alarm to shut up.

  4. [Insignia] [08-17] Driver's door lock

    Car Audio / Electrical / Security / Diagnostic Rel
    Hi All Just aquired an '09 Insignia. Neither keys will operate the driver's door lock manually. Is the lock purely mechanical? Or does the key turn switch a solenoid or something to open the lock (so could be a blown fuse). It seems this is the only way to sync the fob to the car. Cheers.

    Astra, Corsa, Zafira, Meriva, Adam, Agila, Combo
    Hi. Most days my remote keylock won't work, but any now and then it will work for a moment or 2, until I start driving again. It may also have to do with nice dry weather and using the (left hand) drivers door. So, where do I start searching for broken wires, loose connections or?
