My central locking isn't working - is this a fuse problem?
We have a Volkswagen Transporter T6. Had a few problems with a fuse blowing and now the central locking is not working. Could this be a fuse problem?

Er, no. A fuse blows because of a fault. It does not cause the fault. So there is a fault somewhere in your locking system, probably a sticking lock servo that then overloads the wiring and blows the fuse. A DIY fix is to pop out the access plugs under the locks in the door frame and squirt the lock servos with WD40 using the extension nozzle.

Even more refined and car-like to drive. Most economical 102PS 2.0 TDI is also the best. Large range of body configurations. Lots of standard equipment.
