Central locking not working


I am Chris new to the Mini 2 TODAY!

I have a Mini Cooper on a 52 plate.

The central locking is not working and I now have a strange whirring noise in the boot of the Mini.

Any ideas PLEASE?

Hello, does the central locking work using your key in the door and the whirring noise you are hearing if you hear it when locking or unlocking is probably the actuator/lock for the petrol flap as they have plastic cogs in them and easily break, it is located in the left hand cubbyhole in the boot although easier to get at by removing the back light
