    Default Deadlock not spring?

    Hi!
    I'm trying to deadlock my car with the method described int the owners manual, 2 clicks on locking within 15 seconds.
    However, I can't manage to deadlock it, the car simply won't react on the second click.
    Tried with the windows open to check the mechanical disconnection to the buttons inside and also to check the rain sensor/window autoclose feature.

    Oh, crappeti crap crap! Sometimes I just hate the spellcheck on the iPhone. Deadlock not spring?! WTF?!? Haha...

    Ok, I didn't know that. Too bad... Then the autoclose won't work either?
    Can it be something that interrupts the deadlock hopefully?

    As Kenp said, some models (usually bottom of the range) didn't have deadlocks. And similarly some didn't have the window opening and closing from the remote and rain sensor function either.

    I don't have the specs for the Norwegian models unfortunately so can't check what your car should have.

    Autoclose via rainsensor Wont work either.

    But open close via keyfob should work.

    Bit there could be a fault in your system. But dont Think there is. A's diffent locks are needed to have deadlock

    Is it some easy way to find if it's equipped with deadlocks or not?
    My previous Vectra B had it.

    Open/close via keyfob works, but it's a "nice to have"-feature with the rainsensor =)

    That does sound like it should have deadlocks. I wonder if they've been disabled in software?
