    Exclamation Automatic Locking

    Has anyone had any problems with the automatic central locking system? Now i'd never ever totally rely on the car locking itself and just walking off. But, if i park up on the drive and walk off (or even wait and watch) it automatically locks after e few moments. However, if for what ever reason i forget to lock it in say, a carpark, in the middle of town, it never locks! And i return to an unlocked car with a sigh of relief (so far) when noone has toutched it. Anyone else had problems? Is there something i need to do to activate it?

    Ah, that explains it. I noticed it works when washing it and stuff. I'd often unlock it but not open the doors and it'd lock. Thats why it does it when i unlock it and stand and wait to see if it works! ok, forget what i said then!

    Second that. Its so you don't accidentally unlock you car. Or should I say your 18 month year old doesn't!

    Yeh, i remember it from the hand book now. So you don't accidently unlock it walking off or something.

    I sometimes get problems with mine in that it'll open three out of the four doors, drivers side or passenger (never wold notice if it happened to the rear doors anyway).

    Seems to fix itself when i lock and the unlock it again. Strange.

    Mine has done this on the odd occasion too. Never noticed a problem with locking it, only when unlocking

    Yup - only unlocking for me too. Strange. It doesn't worry me as it only happens when you unlock, but still, it makes no sense.

    Sometimes I sit on the key and it opens the windows, locks the car again after 30 secs but the windows stay open. I find this a nuisance as my office is above the car and I don't see that they are open, my neighbour has knocked and told me twice now that all my windows are open and i have only had the car 3 months.

    I do love the window opening trick though! I feel so smug on a hot day walking up to the car with the windows opening! Tee Hee!!
