This is why you should find out how to fix the issue. Here, we will discuss some tips to fix the troubled central locking system not in Kia Ceed.

Inspect the Key Fob

If the battery in your key fob runs out, the car will not be able to unlock the door even if you use the remote. There are other reasons to consider dead keys. Sometimes the remote itself may be defective.

It’s likely that the remote hasn’t been used in a long time, or that it has worn out easily when it was dropped in water.

This is because some of the buttons and wiring on your key fob will be dead, and if any of those things happen, the remote control will probably fail.

Start off by first removing the battery from the remote control. If it still doesn’t work, call a locksmith. You may find some buttons that are not aligned or that parts of the battery are missing.

If that key fob doesn’t work, try replacing the battery. If the battery is good, try getting a locksmith to duplicate it.

If the remote control for the remote control of your car still won’t work, you might need to have it replaced. There are a lot of places where you will be able to hire a professional to help you. A locksmith will help you to find the right key fob.

Replace the Blown Fuse

A car’s central locking is connected to the entire electrical system of the car. This means that one or more fuses are placed to protect against electrical damage. If this fuse blows, the car lock will not work.

To fix this problem, locate your car’s fuse box and identify the fuse for your car’s central locking system. A blown fuse may look burnt, smell, or make a noise when shaken near your ear.

In this case, just replace the blown fuse. Once power is restored to the system, you can reset central locking and use it normally again.

Replace the Faulty Solenoid

An electromagnet is a device that converts electrical energy into mechanical motion. In a car’s central locking system, a solenoid in each car door is activated to lock or unlock the door.

If the lock only works for one or two doors (instead of all doors failing at once), the solenoid for that door may be failing.

Since the solenoid is hidden in the door panel, replacement is not an easy DIY task for the novice. Instead, a qualified technician can help disassemble the door and quickly replace the affected solenoid.
