Dear customer, when you try to unlock the driver's door with central locking do you hear any kind of noise or the lock doesn't do anyting?Thanks
Dear customer, for what i observed, the problem you are presenting may come from the centralized lockingmodule. The centralized closing module is the module responsible for opening and locking the doors. This is the module that receives the signal from the control or from the internal switch to the Receive the signal the order the doors open or close the lock.
As the doors are not activating, either through the fob or through a manual switch, it is very likely that the problem is only in the module since the system does open and close more manually with the fob not simply replace the battery of the fob and the problem would be solved but in your case if it is not working in either of the two ways, it is necessary to go directly to the module but it does not mean that you have to perform the replacement of the module directly, first verifies that all the fuses under the dashboard they are correct and you do not have any of them burned. There are fuses that cut the power to this central locking system
If all are correct you can proceed to perform the verification of the module, I recommend you that before replacing the module perform a computerized diagnosis to your vauxhall with a diagnostic device that has its software not with a generic obd2 equipment as the equipments with the software have the ability to enter the reading of the centralized closing module and the normal obd2 equipment don't, once you enter the module through the computerized diagnostic equipment first try to restore the factory data of the same module, if this does not correct the problem, verify the connections of the module and if they are correct, there you proceed to replace the module as you will see dear customer in the steps that I give you It does not proceed directly to replace the module but there are some procedures before to reduce the repair costs since a module can always has a considerable value but a fuse not like a diagnosis Computer software are cheap things to do. So this is the first step to do before replacing the module to rule out.

Hello dear customer, i apology for my long delay to get back to you. I had some personal issues but now i'm back.
Dear customer, I was in the search for your model manual but unfortunately I do not own it, so I would not know how to indicate the exact location of this fuse. But do not worry, in the user manual you will find the legend of the location of the fuses, there you can find it.
Anyway at the bottom of the board by the side of the driver and co-driver and on the sides when opening the door you will find the fuse boxes, in the lid of the box you can find this legend too.
