    I have a Swift Bolero and the Central Locking on the Habitation Door is not working, but it works on the Cab doors. Does anyone have any ideas what the
    Problem could be. It is under warranty but I am in Spain at moment.
    The alarm still works, but have to lock Hab door with key. Happy Motohoming.

    Most of the hab door central locking get their power through pin contacts near the edge of the door & these need cleaning up from time to time.

    I had the same problem with bessacarr E745 , It was a broken cable where it entered the door. It happened after swift had carried out work on van.

    when you cleaned the pins up put a dab of anti seize / copper grease on them or equivalent electrical grease

    I had this problem. Stripped the door entirely and found that a small coil spring on the locking mechanism was bent. Very fiddly job but the dealer had 3 goes over 3 years at it and couldn't fix it under warranty. I believe your van is almost identical to mine so it may be the same problem, poor assembly.
