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

Answered by CarsGuide 11 Sep 2020

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.

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Mar 2019

P0513 is indicating a problem with the car’s ignition key, which should have the car’s VIN and skim PIN code to deactivate the immobiliser. If you have a spare key, try that. P0 430 indicates a problem with the catalytic converter. There are a number of possible causes for this, it could be fuel system problem, a clogged converter, or a damaged oxygen sensor. Take the car to a dealer and have it investigated.

My Great Wall Steed keeps breaking down, can I get a refund?

Answered by CarsGuide 13 Jul 2018

It would appear that you have a good case for a refund or a new car, but it’s a matter of negotiation with Great Wall in the first instance. If you don’t have any success go to the Victorian Government’s Consumer Affairs Department and enlist their help in negotiating a satisfactory outcome.
