Have you tried pressing the lock button again, maybe one or two more times? My car has always been this way inclined - the flash generally doesn't happen until two presses, sometimes three, occasionally only the one. I put this down to faulty lock modules.
yes they used to flash before. is there any way to check if this has been disabled as i prefer them to flash as my car has a tendency to be tempremantal with the remote locking and doesnt always lock/unlock
I was changing my indicator light bulb and i short circuited something resulting in a pop.
my hazard lights were not working - neither did the hazards flash on locking the car with the fob.
i pressed hazard switch - no lights working.
so i checked fuses, low and behold the fuse for hazard lights was blown. so i changed this (15amp fuse in side of dashboard).
My hazards were now working - however the hazards still did not flash upon locking the car with the fob.
after much searching on google, ukmkiv, vortex, etc - everyone seems to point to locking module failure - but i was adamant it was something else like a relay or another fuse because all my doors lock perfectly - and besides, how could a shorted bulb replacement blow one of my locking modules ???
after another hour of searching, i found that there is a 15amp fuse for the alarm/turn signals located under the steering column (again 15amp, fuse D).
