- Incorrect central locking fuse. The current one is 15 Amp and it must be a 20 Amp fuse.
- Defect in the front door locks.

- Read the fault codes recorded in the junction box control unit (JBBF) using the diagnostic tool.
- Confirm that the fault codes are the same as the ones that appear in the field symptoms of this bulletin.
- Check the fuse F56, F57 or F73 for the central locking system depending on the manufacturing year of the vehicle.
- Replace the F56, F57 or F73 fuse with a 20 Amp fuse.
- Check the proper operation of the central locking system by locking and unlocking it up to 10 times.
