Should be the drivers door that has the lock for the key, so that's odd to start with.

Your 'dead-locking' is engaged, if the interior door handles don't open the door.

The central locking and dead-locking is controlled by the BSI, check fuses in the BSI and the plugs and sockets on the BSI, check for a wet BSI too.

Before you get the angle grinder out, it will be worth a go at resetting the BSI.


If you fault it down to the BSI being damaged, BBA Reman can test and fix them.

There is also a BSI central locking repair topic here if you want to get stuck into the BSI yourself.

Let us know how you get on!
