I have a rocker switch on the panel just inside the door of my Winny. It has a switch that should lock or unlock all the compartments simultaneously. It just quit working. I can hear the relays clicking over behind the fuse panels on the drivers side; my remote lock will work on the door but not ont he compartments. Again, I can hear the relays when I press the remote so I don't have a dead remote battery.
Does any one have any advice on what to look for?
BTW< the breakers for the compaatments are not tripped.
Thanks.

Well. a relay is just a remote controlled switch. It sounds like the "switch" is switching (the clicking you hear) but the power source being switched on is not working. The first think I would look for is a fuse in the pwoer source tat the relay switches. The second would be a break or short in the wire from the relay to the doors.

I don't have any advice on where these may be located. Follow the sound of the clicks to locate the relay, then start tracing the wires.

I had a similar problem with my 2005 Vectra...door lock worked from the remote but not the storage doors and also not from the rocker switch from inside the main door. I contacted the manuafacture who walked me thru a diagnosis and said the main control had a bad circuit and needed to be replaced. I also noticed that a couple of my compartment locks were froze in the locked position and even the key would not release them. Long story short when I took it to the dealer they replaced the Main controller, all the compartment switches and the remotes...

PDB: I have a 05 Itasca Meridian, and have had the same problem. Except with mine, the remote locks sometimes work, sometimes don't work. There's a remote control box in mine in the front left locker with an antenna. Check that--otherwise you may have to have it changed.
