My 93' 9000 CSE doesn't have keyfob; only the key. A couple of years ago, the rear door central locking slowed down and I was thinking of what to do. The dealer said it would be complicated to fix and recommended to leave it until it got worse. However, by exercising the central locking as you described the problem cured itself. Also remember to grease to door hinges, and the boot/bonnet hinges while you're at it. I was surprised to discover that no hinges had been greased after a main dealer service!
