    Default passenger has no central lock

    Having just sold a 2003 Vectra LS and bought a new Vectra Exclusive, I was most dissappointed to find that there is no switch on the passenger side door to operate the central locking.
    My wife often used it in the old Vectra in case of a break-in, at traffic lights for example.
    A little paranoid I know, but it was very useful.
    Do others find this annoying? A means of reto-fitting one would be great.

    Have you tried to enable auto lock, i.e - car auto locks when you get over 10mph , and then unlocks driver door only when key is removed

    I thought all pre-facelifts had the passenger side lock and boot release buttons on them? I thought it was only on the facelift they got dropped?

    It's an easy one to do, just a couple of wires to swap about in to the old style switch. There's 'How To' somewhere on the forum by dieselvec1.

    Read post properly! Saw 2003 and just replied.

    As glenboy said it can be retro-fitted - don't know why they dropped it in the first place on the facelift.

    but if she got into the car on her own with one 'plip', then only the driver's door is unlocked anyway, and she could pop the button on that down as soon as she's seated.
    or am i missing something?

    Think the OPs wife would lock the doors while in the passenger seat; thats how i read it anyway.

    ...and the vectra can be set to unlock all doors at once.
