I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
If no fuses are blown then this indicates a failure of the general module - this unit controls central locking, interior lighting and alarm.
You could potentially have a remote receiver failure as well, but if the interior lights are not working this points to the module.
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
