Pull up the carpet from the front passenger footwell. The ECU controlling the central locking sits at the lowest point under thick foam & so collects any water that may leak in.

If wet it will need thoroughly drying & checking for corroded conexions & broken wires.

Source of water ingress is usually the pollen filter housing or plenum chamber drains blocked ( where the battery & brake servo sit ).
