Customer Question

I have a ford mondeo 1796cc X reg 5 door hatchback 2001. I bought the car March 2013 and parked it up until December 2013. The battery was flat so I recharged it. The remote control central locking alarm key no longer opened the doors. The battery has been checked ( the one on the key) this is not the problem. Fuses have been checked they are ok. Recently the car was motied the garage tried to reprogramme the key this did not work. When I bought the car the central locking key worked fine. This week when I lock the drivers door the other three doors dont lock. I can lock all four doors by using the lock on the front nearside door. Can you help me

Hello again..

I am sorry you dain to feel the way you do.

Evidently you have sorted your cars' problems now and do not need any help.

For you to make that comments you have above after I have explained the situation to you shows there is no helping you sadly so I wont bother any further.

If you were to read the terms and conditions properly before using the site, you would see properly how the site works...good advice for the future with regards ***** ***** you may do then these misunderstandings on your part would not occur.

Kind Rgds. MIKE
