Central lock trouble

Took the 986 out of its winter rest yesterday.
The central lock is working strange.
-The aftermarket remote controll makes the lights double blink to indicate it unlocks, but it doesn't.
-Neither does it work to unlock with the key in the door lock.
but,
-If I sit in the car it works to lock and unlock with the button on the instrument panel.

Anyone have some ideas? As it is now I can't lock the doors. Anoying!

Correction, the key work in the passenger door, so probably the fault is in the driver door, and the remote is probably connected somehow to the driver door circuitry.
I guess I need to figure out how to dismantle and check the door mechanism.

This is often another case of bushing wear. Wear may be so bad that the rods connecting everything have fallen out and are sitting at the bottom of the door, to save yourself from hassle and probably money, try the professionals, reginaautocenter.com/...Goodluck!

Many cars today also feature systems which can unlock such things as the luggage compartment or fuel filler cap door. It is also common on modern cars for the locks to activate automatically when the car is put into gear or reaches a certain speed. Jump Start Regina
