I own a 1998 grand espace and it has developed a problem with the central locking.
It works OK but will not lock the off side rear door. I have purchased another motor but it did not work either. The speaker still works so I assume that the wiring coming from the B post is OK.
The problem occured about a week after i got it back from having the windows tinted ( the windows were removed for this)
This is a frustrating problem because there seems no way of manually locking the door so for now i have disconnected the outside handle but this is not really safe long term.
Is there a relay or something that is broken or is this a problem with the wiring. Any advice is most appreciated.
Hi it might just be a coindicence that this has happened from they had the windows out to tint them but i have to say this would be my first port of call to remove the door card and see what is going on and see if there are any vacuum pumpsor wires have been knocked off ???,iam not sure if the Central locking is on a relay or a fuse but if the other doors are working so its very unlikely they have there own fuse or relay,hope this helps Donald
