Central locking problem

I have an S reg VW Polo and for about 6 mths now I can only unlock from the passengers side and lock from the drivers side. I was locked out of my car the other day and had to call my local garage to open it for me. The garage have asked me to book it in so that they can have a proper look at it and advised me that one of the modules had possibly gone. The upshot is that I may have to have a new central locking system.
Could anyone advise approx how much this could cost? The garage couldn't tell me as they have to order the parts from VW direct.

Sorry if this is a bit rambling but I'm new to this and haven't got a clue about cars.

Cheers.

Locking system will be anywhere from $140 - $300. All depending on the year and model of the car.

Might not be that serious, there is a lot that can go wrong to cause this that is local to the offending door.

I never gave a damn about the meterman,...

-til I was the one who had to read the meter....

....man.
