Question about Peugeot 407
Car computer reads that the front driver's door is open. For this reason central locking system can't lock the car.When pressing the button on a key fob I can hear the locks are coming down but they pop up back again immediately. It is possible to lock this door manually but all the other doors remain open. Please help
This will save you loads of money and stress ok. Been using this simple solution for about 18 months and still working. On your lock bar (not door lock) but the u shaped bar that the lock latches onto! on pillow of car. Don't laugh ok ha ha ! just rap electrical tape around bar a few times to make it thicker. You might have to experiment by adding or taking layer of tape off. your door should lock ok and door sensor fault will not appear. "YES" its as simple as that ! Tape will wear but its a 2 minute job to redo and the estimated cost will be 50p lol. three garages told me I need new lock fitted and then the thinking light bulb shon so brite! Hope this works matey, good luck. Gaz from Newcastle on Tyne.

I have a similar issue on a 2001 Jetta sedan. jandkat seems to be talking about the old system that VW used (pre-1998). To my knowledge there is no vacuum-based locks in the 2001 models. I've had the door completely apart and there are defiantly not any vacuum hoses. The only 100% for sure fix I have found is to replace the door latch mechanism. There are some other options but I'm not sure they would completely fix the issues you are having. Now for the bad news: you can only get this door latch mechanism from VW dealers. I have yet to find a place online or elsewhere that carries them. They are around $185 for the latching mechanism and if you don't want to install it, be prepared to pay another $200 or so in labor. If you do want to do it yourself, here is a great site that has step-by-step how to take a VW door apart: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1015107
Hope this helps

SOURCE: VW Golf 2002 central locking
this sounds like a stuck switch in the door lock assembly. it will make the locking system work like its got a mind of its own. The best fix is to first try cleaning the latch on the door it has a switch to tell the car if the latch is open/closed. Use an old tooth brush with some degreaser scrub the base of the latch on the door. After its cleaned up relube it with some white grease or dry graphite. Then try the lock again. If this doesn't solve it then the lock assembly has a faulty switch inside and replacement is the best option

It may be set in the main menu to lock only by the fob. I know on GMC's there are about 7 different locking options. I'm not a specialist in Land Rovers but the cheapest way out is to check all your options on the dash/steering wheel buttons.
