This just happend to me a week ago.. I got locked in the car.. first my husband took out the fuse that make the auto lock work, then he took off the inside of the door panel inside the car because we could not open the drivers side door. He said the spring had broke and so the door could not unlatch itself he just bent the spring back.....now it works great

When I close all doors on my 2001 Dodge Durango Quad cab they all lock all by themselves within a minute It has a key fob for locking and unlocking doors and I've changed batteries.


check the automatic door locking module
it is supposed to lock the doors after a certain road speed is reached so if it is happening immediately then it is faulty
if you unlock the doors but do not open at least one with in a set time 1 minute --- the module will relock the doors

Peugeot 508 RXH: I cannot lock the car with the remote. The doors lock, but unlock again. The car detects open doors correctly. I can lock the doors with the dashboard button.


If you have 2 remotes does it do the same thing with both of them?
I/We have a Honda FRV and if you set the alarm from outside the car ....which locks the doors ...and the doors are opened from the inside, (yes I have set the alarm whilst still in the car,) this unlocks the doors as the drivers door has the master central locking switch on it. If I close the door withing a few seconds the alarm reactivates itself and the doors relock automatically
Presumably when your doors unlock the alarm is disarmed? Maybe your issue is linked to the receiver in the security system?

There is a difference, presumably, between you locking the doors from the dash as opposed to doing it from the remote control, the security system is not armed in the former, only the doors are locked +



GOOD LUCK

Cenral locking won open the tailgate fuse 1 ok


It normally DOES NOT Unlock with the Door Unlock. Depending on the Year/Make/Model. Some have a Separate Button, Some you have to Push 2 QUICK Unlocks for it to work, then there is one I ran into that you had to push it 3 times (I though that was odd).

One Quick Push = Drivers Doot
Two Quick Pushes = All Doors
Three Quick Pushes = Trunk

Doors automatically lock sometimes while in motion other times after the engine has been shut off. Using the remote to unlock the doors results in the doors unlocking them immediately relocking.


it depend upon the program of the alarm system.the mitsubishi alarm system is programble or u can check the alarm system control under the steering column and check the central lock controller,the main actuator on the front driver side door

On a bmw 2001 M5. The right passenger door lock will not release with the normal system use. So, the door remains locked. How does one solve the problem and repair the door/


You need to resync the locks - it's easy. Lock doors from driver side - to first lock click. Then go around to passenger door and from outside, unlock & relock doors. Sometimes more than once is required but after a few trys, if that doesn't fix it, it will need new door lock actuator.

My daughter just purchased a used 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix and claims the doors locked automatically when she was warming the car. Is this possible?


yes it can happen, you need to have the power door lock circuit checked for a short, or get an extra key to keep with you in case it happens again. I have seen them relock an instent after unlocking them and you have to be quick to grab the door handle.

Doors unlock fine but relock too quickly to get in the car


usualy tis is caused by the door key cylender sensor switch beeing loose or damage espacilly if you have had a slim or a wire hanger in the door panel trying to unlock the doors if this is the problem it will also over time run your battery down its kinda like your holding the lock button down all the time
