The automatic compartment locks on my 2005 Vectra began cycling by
them selves before they quit working all together. I know my master
controler went bad from talking to the manufacture of the system. All
but two of the compartment locks will still open and lock with a key
but the two must have frozen solinoids because they will not release
from the locked position allowing the key to work. Has any one else
experienced the problem and found a way to gain access to a locked
storage compartment?

My compartment locks became intermintent & would sometimes cycle as I walked by the MH with the controler. Found that the controler batteries were down. Replaced them & also reset the master control unit in the left front elect compartment. It lives behind the hinged panel with all the breakers & fuses. Both remotes must be used to set the master for both to work.Check the doc. that came in your info kit.
This fixed my problem & have not had any further problem.

We just had a case of "mysterious" cycling of the locks a couple of weeks ago. Happened only once and I actually had forgotten about it until reading this post.

Thanks for the insight.
