Question about Ford Fiesta

Car doors won't lock because of an error message. What could the problem be?

An error message keeps appearing saying that the passenger door is open, even though it's not. So now the doors won't lock, unless the error message has disappeared.

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

SOURCE: my vw sharan locks itself after 30 seconds even

Right , here's your problem ,,, the door swiches are incorperated into the door locks and thats why your interior light does not come on, therefore the vehicle thinks the doors haven't opened, This will cause the alarm to recycle the door locking signal .

Vw golf mk4 my rear passenger door willnot open with central locking key system. i can't even open it from the inside, pull the door handle and the lock pin rises but door won't open. i believ


This worked for me on 2008 Mk5 Golf, after the rear passenger door would not open fro outside or inside.

Hold the inside door latch open and keep it extended, then with the key fob open and close the door locks (still holding the inside latch open). Keep locking and unlocking the door, then it made a kluck and it released.

All my remotes won't unlock passenger doors, why?


this is a problem that can appear after your car battery died, cause the car didn't reset propely, so taking the battery out and putting it back in or letting your car die again would do the trick. I tried a lot of reprogramming procedured for my remote key, none of them worked, what did the trick though was simply unlocking the doors via the all door unlock button on the passenger side door, so simple.

CTS 2010, RKE system does not work for the driver door. The key is in my purse, my purse on my shoulder and the driver's door only refuses to open even if I hear the doors unlocking. It's driving...


if you are hearing clicking noise but the door won't open then the door lock actuator is not releasing the lock. not uncommon problem ,but the car is still new. most of the time this type of problem starts after 5or6 years. I hope your car is still under warranty.

First problem started when the passenger door didn't open from outside. Now when you lock the car, the passenger door won't lock.


Sounds like the locking mechanism in the passenger door may need lubrication. You could also have a wiring issue and/or the actuator solenoid on that door could be bad. I'm assuming you are using the keyless locking fob. What happens when you push the door locking button on the driver's side door or the locking button on the passenger door itself? If these work as they should and with not hesitation then you likely have some other problem in the locking system.
