My 51 plate mini cooper has developed a fault on the central locking.The driver door is`nt unlocking via the remote yet the passenger side does.If i use the key to unlock the door both doors unlock as normal,even the button on the dash doesnt open it.Ive had the door panel off but cant see anything wrong. (Ie.loose wire etc) Any idea`s?

My '03 just developed the same issue.:(

Minimaniuk, can you expand on your response? Does this require a replcement of the door lock mechanism, or is there some fix that can be made to it? If it requires replacement, is it a complicated job?

Thanks for your help!

Its a replacement of the lock unit ,it comes as one item , requires the door trim removal and its a bit restricted for room ,but not that hard to change 1 connector and a few screws - if the internal switch goes bad the car thinks the lock is already closed so wont close it or it is already open so wont open it
