Apologies, yes it's the MkI, I've tried replacing the fuse and unplugging the siemens box but to no avail.
I managed to use some electrical tape to isolate each wire and still no success so I would assume that it's a problem with the lock itself?

You didn't supply the model year, so our answers are just guesses.
On the MkI I have, the driver's door harness will disconnect at the door frame (twist release plug connectors).
Wiring damage from flexing to the door harness can certainly be a cause for your problem.

Now my Focus will make a clicking sound from the central locking but the locks don't move at all. Any hints?
Also there are multiple split wires in the drivers side door (under the rubber wrapping between the door and the frame) could this be part of the problem?
And can I unplug the wires from the frame without damaging them?
(sorry for sounding like a noob, I just don't want to permanently screw up my doors ;) )

Can you read?
Or...............'hard to get lube fully inside them.'
Also, WD40 turns into like bubblegum when it dries out and sticks things up even worse when it does, they don't tell you that on the can of course..................the parts you spray with WD are not the errant ones that lie deeper inside, if you flood it you MIGHT get to them but you might not. And once you've put it in there, there is no getting it back out when it starts gumming the works up even worse.
The only sure cure is taking the latch completely apart and thoroughly greasing all the parts inside. To do that you will be bending tabs and drilling out rivets, BTDT.

|amc49||Look at the latch that does not work when you do that, the one most likely causing all the trouble. Fix it and problem often fixed. New latch assembly unless you figure out how to lube it, the latches cannot be taken apart without drilling rivets out and hard to get lube fully inside them. There are like two compartments inside that are sealed off from the rest.|

|Gers1989||Hi I have a focus 2001 zetec my central locking is playing up it double locks and means it is unlocked unless I put key in door and sometimes when it does lock it only looks 3 doors instead of all of them has any one had this or know if it is.a easy fix|

I almost wrecked a $600 set of connecting rods once by spraying them liberally, the stuff reduced down to a dried bubblegum type goo that no solvent on earth would touch. Finally had to laboriously hand rub it off, it took forever.
Pop as well got the bright idea on one of the nine second drag cars to spray a small shot of WD in plug holes every time plugs were pulled. That engine reduced the stuff down to scar up the cylinder walls weirdly, we stopped doing it and never again had the issue with same type and part engine builds. I like using it for certain things but nothing for long periods of time. I've had it stick up lock tumblers before too but reshooting more in seems to re-break it back down to go back to working again.
