Noisy central locking Nissan MIcra

My Nissan Micra 3 door diesel has recently developed a noise in the central locking. When I lock the door from the outside using the key fob, it makes a mechanical whining crunchy noise inside the driver door. Whn I lock it using the lock button between the seats it locks without noise.

Nissan micra central locking locks but makes a grinding sound on on side of the car.

Put your ear to the door and listen to where the grinding/buzzing noise is coming from when you lock the door, sometimes it maybe more than one door! The door it's coming from need a door actuator, common fault with the k12 micra's, which i'm guessing this is a k12 model!

How do i reset central locking on a micra 04 reg

Try the following:

The Central Door locking is controlled by the Multi-Remote Control system which controls
the door locking, door super locking and hazard reminder. When the doors are locked and
unlocked the unit flashes the hazard lights once for lock and twice for unlock.
A maximum of four remote controls are allowed to be programmed.
Ensure all the doors have been unlocked, either by using a good transponder key or remote
control plip key.
1. Turn the ignition switch from Position 0 to ON 6 times within 10 seconds.
2. Then turn ignition switch to OFF position. Leave key in ignition switch.
3. After 2 seconds, the system will enter programming mode and will flash the warning
lights twice.
4. Press and HOLD the unlock button on the Plip.
5. While pressing the unlock button, press the lock button 3 times.
6. Release the unlock button.
7. The warning lights will flash once to indicate successful programming.
8. Repeat procedure 4 to 7 for up to 4 plip key?s.
9. When completed turn ignition ON, and the warning lights will flash 2 times.
10. Remove key, and check all plip key?s for operation.
NOTE : The programming mode will stop when either the ignition is switch ON, 4 plip keys
have been programmed or no input signal either from the switch or plip keys has been received
for 120 seconds."

Central locking

Hope you are not still locked out. Our Micra has a secret keyhole in the passenger door handle, you have to flick out the little plastic cover. Good luck!
