yeah theres 2 of them, the other is next to the steering colum under the dash. Thats the main one.
Excellent diagnonsis by the way Dean.Dean said:I've only ever seen or heard of this problem on the 84-86 Mk2's, and never on an 82-83. What about others? Has anyone had this problem on an 82 or 83??
If it only happens on 84-86's, do you suppose it is just a coincidence that they moved the door lock button from the console (82-83) to the door in 84-86's?
If this problem is only found on 84-86's, I'd check the door lock button for loose connections first. Re-solder as needed. Check door lock solenoid itself for loose connections second. Replacing relay would be third on my list. But that's just from my experience with my own 7 Mk2's and several others in the local club. :wink:
my origional key was worn to the point that it works in the car but the ignition doesn't hold it anymore so i start the car then take the key out and lock the car back up lolCST said:yup, I'm another victim of the wonderful door lock problem, and I've got an 85 of course. It really sucks when you wanna warm the car up for school or something and you can't cuz the damn door locks. But I just keep a spare key inside my car for that reason now, cuz I can unlock it, use the spare to start it, then come back out and unlock it with my main, haha.
But yeah, so it's a relay then? Those are pricey aren't they?
