    Default Driver side door shut but showing open on display

    Cannot lock the doors with central locking or with the door button as the door open sign displays even when the door is shut properly. Have checked for clearances and nothing is blocking it or in its way. This is only with the driver's side front door
    Had to shut all doors manually today ...

    No frame switches, it's inside the lock mechanism.


    Try using a screw driver (or other device) to close the lock on the door to the second latch and see if the icon goes out.

    Had a similar problem with mine but with the rear door, took it to dealers as it was still under warranty and it needed a new lock mechanism! While I waited for the part to arrive they disconnected it so I didnt get the light on the dash.
    Sorry that probably doesn't help much!

    tried pushing the lock mechanism on the second latch and the light still didnt go off
    checked it with the rear door and the door icon does go off - so definitely something to do with the lock mechanism -

    Had the same problem with mine. It was the lock!! Because the drivers door gets used so much more than the other doors it wears it out. Brought a new door lock, which is the motor and lock in one. About £70 new from stealers!! Bit of a pig to fit aswell, would be better to get someone to fit it for you, if not a lot of swearing will be going on!!!! Hope it all works out for ya!

    I would remove the lock and dismantle it. It's probably something really simple wrong with the switch inside not reporting a closed latch

    Its the catch plate. Do a search, Duncan knows the cure If I remember, you will see little measurements on it, it just needs moving a little.
