    Default Vectra C central locking

    Hey guys,

    Today I decided to start the car and put on the front + rear defrost systems. I intended to then just lock the car (remote or not) and go have some breakfast. However, I found 2 things. 1. My keys don't actually unlock the car manually (or the boot) and 2. When the car was running, the remote central lock doesn't work. Is the car supposed to do this with the remote central locking when running? Re: the manual locking, I can only assume that before I bought the car, someone lost the original keys and just had a new pair coded to the car to unlock it remotely :-(

    Thanks I'll be sure to remember this. I don't suppose that either one of you could try on your cars and see if it works? That would be helpful to me if it's not too much trouble?

    I think it'll be a safety feature re the central locking not locking with the engine running. I'm not sure about the key not working manually though. It's your car, but i personally wouldn't leave it running, locked or not. Only takes 2 seconds to put a window in and drive off. Mind you can't leave it running on a public road unattended

    lol Thanks, but it's ok. It's a private car park with a security gate that only opens with a remote key fob.
