Another Person with a Central Locking problem

SO here goes...

I have to manually lock/unlock all of my doors and trunk. I just recently changed the central locking fuses (there are 3 of them) and all the locks seemed to be fixed...for about 2 days. The fuses blew out again and I have to go back to the manual locking/unlocking. What do you guys think it is? AND are there certain types of fuses I should be using for my car? Thanks guys....

Hey

You need to just use standard blade fuses buddy, just make sure they are the right rating. you can find this on the underside of the fuse lid

If they are correct and keep blowing then you have a short somewhere. Take off the door cards and look for damaged wires. Also check the wires under to bootlid as they are prone to wear and damage

Look for a set of wires to your trunklid,one or two of these wires may be shorting out when you open or close your trunklid blowing your fuses.I would trace the wires going to the trunk lock actuator.
