Why isn't the central locking system in my 2013 Great Wall Steed working properly?

Asked by Jonathan

I have a Great Wall Steed 2013, model AMD. When I open the door the central locking system locks and when I close the door it opens, I have changed the battery in the fob and it is still doing it. What could the problem be?

The most likely answer is that the body computer on your car has a problem. This computer is the one that links all the various functions (and the driveline) to each other, including cruise-control, the instrumentation, lighting, power-windows and, of course, the central-locking.

If the problem is deep within the computer’s circuit-board, you may need to swap it for a new one. But before you spend any money, try this: Close all the doors and then hold the lock button down on the remote. Hold it for at least 30 seconds and then see if the central-locking is behaving. If that fails, try disconnecting the battery and leaving the car for at least an hour. What you’re trying to do is manually force the body computer to re-set itself. This process doesn’t work with all cars, but it does on some and who knows, you might just be lucky.
