central locking

There are some past threads on this topic but directly on point. 07 X3. Key button will lock or unlock doors. Central locking button on dash inoperative. All fuses seem to be okay. Battery in key is ok. Manual use of the key will lock/unlock the driver door but not the other doors. Everything else is working fine. Thoughts on fixes short of taking to the dealer? Thanks.

As I was checking the fuses, after I reinserted one fuse the interior lights came one. It was bright and I had not realized that they were even out when I took the fuse out. I am not even sure they were out before I extracted the fuse.

Do the interior lights have any unusual behavior such as coming on over bumps or not turning off?

No, nothing like that. The only odd thing was yesterday when I was in northern Indiana during a big snowfall. I had the fog lights on but they went off presumably because the lenses were caked with snow and ice and overheated.
