          Me too!
          Went out to use the Avant yesterday, opened the door and the honk honk from the boot went off! Then I realised the drivers door isn’t locking or unlocking the other doors any more.
          Any ideas?
          I’m thinking it might just be the switch in the driver’s door.
          Problem is the key doesn’t open the oth side or the boot, either there’s a different key which I don’t have or they’re seized from never being used..

              There's an actuator attached to the lock that activates the central locking system. The best way to see if it's a faulty actuator is to get a spare actuator. Remove the door card, unplug the actuator and plug in the spare to see if it then works. If it still doesn't you probably have a wiring issue. I found a broken wire in the rubber wire cover at the door hinge when I had the same problem. This way saves you dismantling the lock unnecessarily like I did! Or you could check the wiring at the hinge to start with, might save you some time!

                Thanks bud, I’ll check the wiring first, it happened once then was ok, then went wrong properly the next day, so definitely could be the wire.
                If that all looks ok then I’ll pull the door card.
                I’ve got a spare actuator from an ABY coupe somewhere in the cave..

                  It was the switch on the door lock not making contact, replaced with a spare and now all working.
