I have a 2005 Kia Sorento and the central locking will not work with the key fob and I would be grateful for some help to try and sort it.
works from the drivers door switch both lock and unlock
does not work when locking the car with the key on the drivers side or passenger side, only the door being used locks
does not work with the key fob, key fob light flashes red
tried reprogramming by connecting pins 5 and 17, turning to on, pressing fob lock button twice, no joy. I was inside the car when I did this, did I need to point the fob at something specific?

i cannot decide if the central locking has a fuse or relay?

if someone could give me a list of sequential checks it would be very helpful. Thank you. Simon

Quite common is broken wires where they pass through from A pillar to door or water got down from bottom of window glass and corroded the master swith located on the drivers door locking mechanism.
