Drivers side lock doesn't work

My newly acquired estate (almost identical to my other one - including colour) doesn't have a working lock, the key goes in and rotates through 180 degrees but has no effect on the lock or central locking, the key will operate the central locking from the passenger door but the remote doesn't work either, no doubt a separate issue.

I know I'm going to have to take it apart and see but wonder if anyone has any idea about it, and the remote locking. I don't have a 70cm radio anymore so can't test the transmitter, the battery is OK.

The rotating thing is meant to stop a different key, screwdriver etc. from gaining purchase, once it beats the resistance of a spring the lock just rotates. This also applies to the proper key if the lock is stiff. Try soaking it with WD first (bear in mind that if the lock is upside-down, i.e. having been rotated 180 degrees already it'll spin until it's the right way up).

The plip might be unsynchronised, this requires PP and the pin code (if you have it...)

Thanks Steve, I will try the lubrication bit before I dismantle it. I now have my PP2000 operative but don't have the code, there is a handbook with it though so I suppose there is a chance the card will be in it.

Forgive me if you've already tried it, but you might be able to re-synch it just by turning on the ignition / pressing & holding the lock button for 10 sec.
(It's never worked for me, but you never know).

No, I haven't tried anything yet but thanks for the suggestion.

Just an update on this. I tried Steve's suggestion of WD40 but to no avail, gave it a good work out but still went round and round.

This afternoon I decided to bite the bullet and take the lock out, I carefully removed the door panel and freed the inner liner with a Stanley knife with a new blade so I wouldn't damage it to much, got it all undone and went in to get the key so I could see what was happening, inserted it in the lock, turned it and 'clunk' the doors all unlocked, I operated it a number of times and it works find, Steve was right but I didn't leave it for long enough.

The remote I have had no luck with, I have tried resetting the BSI but it still doesn't work, the remote battery is good but I have nothing to check it on to see if its transmitting, the PCB looks OK so I am at a loss. Does it have a separate receiver for the remote and if so does anyone know where it is?

I think the receiver is 'in' the BSI.
You probably are going to have to get the 4-character PIN code and use PP2K to get the BSI to (re)learn the key code(s).
If you don't have the PIN, it can be obtained from the VIN code, unfortunately not FOC.
Try Googling Peugeot or PSA vin to pin.
