I'm new and have found you thanks to another member.
I have a problem with my Xsara hatchback (2002 1.6SX).
When I bought the car about 7 months ago it had a problem with the central locking, it would lock and instantly unlock giving several flashes of the indicators to show which door was open (the guy was ex pug/cit). They repaired this fault before I picked the car up and it was working without any problems.
Then I started having problems...... It would lock/unlock and beep without any indicator flashes........ The problem became worse until I couldn't lock it at all. I then asked several independent garages to have a look, but they advised taking it to the local dealership on the understanding that they would plug the system in and read the fault codes.
I took it to the local dealer and they advised repairing several wires in loom to the door socket. The repairs were made, but the socket is now bypassed (drilled through and wired directly into the door). I picked the car up ?270ish lighter and drove it home to find the problem was exactly the same
I drove it straight back and looked at the paperwork, it looks like they didn't do a diagnostic.
I'm now waiting for a call telling me about new looms etc (lots of cash).
My questions are..............
1. Do I have any hope of bending their ear over the ?270 as they didn't repair it the first time around?
2. If the indicators do not flash after a locking fault is there a more serious problem?
3. Do I have a chance of solving this problem using the BSI reset?
Cheers for looking and any help would be very nice.
