2001 986 base model, Central Locking malfunction

Merritt Island, 

I have a Central Locking problem. I do not have a remote Locking fob or a car alarm installed. As I said base model, radio only option listed. 

-door locks with key (3 turns necessary) LED on Central Locking switch (on dash) flashes twice. 

-must go around and physically key lock passenger door, Central Locking switch LED flashes multiple times.

-gas door lock does not activate, always remains open.

Question is where do I start trouble shooting? Durimetric will temporarily clear the two Alarm (I32 and I48) codes, both 60 Locking limit not reached(?). Doesn't tell me much except that I have to use the "emergency" Locking feature (3 turns). 

Any ideas where to go from here would be appreciated. I will commence the dirty job of replacing the gas door Locking mechanism just because I want that to work anyway.
