Question about 2007 Audi A3

1 Answer

Not precisely a problem ... regarding AUTO LOCK WHEN IN MOTION

I note that my 07 A3 auto locks the doors when I tear off down the road (or when I wheedle along as the case may be).

HOWEVER ... has anyone divined what magical set of circumstances must be present in order for the locks to AUTO UNLOCK when you STOP and decide you want to get out of the car?

It seems that every time I THINK about it, the locks unlock somehow, when I place the (manual trans) gear shift into N; But if I don't think about it, and exit the vehicle without a care, I note as how the passenger (4 door) rear doors and hatch are LOCKED. This is way so frustrating.

Is there a special series of things one must do BEFORE the door is opened perhaps ? I Hear the doors unlocking automagically sometimes ... but I absolutely don't know what it is I do to unlock them so.

ANy help would be greatly appreciated.

john.

Hi mate, sounds like a problem with the phneumatics which trigger the central locking system!, or a sensor, regarding opening all the doors and tailgate, press the open button on your remote twice! or at least thats what i do!

I have 2005 chevy tahoe my doors all licks but my liftgate door with window stays open use to lock w all my doors? I havent check anytjing yet? I cant lock it.


Here is how it works !
Liftgate Locking Operation
The lift gate will lock any time the vehicle is shifted out of park on vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission and at vehicle speeds exceeding 5 kph with manual transmission. This happens in conjunction with auto door locks if enabled or independently of auto door locks if the feature is disabled. This ensures that the lift gate is locked anytime the vehicle is shifted out of park or when the vehicle is in motion.
The lift gate lock relay supply and coil sides receive a constant voltage through the battery voltage supply circuit and the ECC fuse. The normally closed contact is connected to ground and the control side is connected to the body control module (BCM). A lock function will occur when a door lock switch activation, keyless entry lock transmission, auto door lock function or a lift gate lock function has been received by the BCM. The BCM will then ground the control side of the lift gate lock relay. This energizes the relay and allows voltage to be applied to the lift gate lock actuator lock control circuit. Since the other side of the lift gate lock actuator is connected to the normally closed contacts of the door unlock relay to ground, the lift gate will lock. When an unlock function occurs the BCM will ground the control side of the unlock relay and the rear doors and lift gate will unlock.
The BCM also runs diagnostics on the lift gate lock relay control circuit and will set DTC B3825 as current and also send a Class 2 message to the DIC. The DIC will display REPLACE LIFTGATE FUSE to inform the driver that a fault has been detected in the lift gate lock circuit and that the lift gate is not locked. Faults that will set the DTC and cause the DIC to display the message could be any of the following:
?€¢
An open ECC fuse


?€¢
An open or short to ground in the lift gate lock relay battery positive voltage circuit


?€¢
A faulty lift gate lock relay


?€¢
An open or short to ground in the lift gate lock relay control circuit


?€¢
A short to ground in the lift gate lock actuator lock control circuit


?€¢
A faulty BCM

You mean you left the FOB in the car. Go to the rear corner of the side the FOB is on (just behind rear wheel of side the FOB is on). "Bounce" the car up and down 5 - 10 times. Try the door. FOB has small motion switch in it and it might move enough to activate "auto-open" for locks. This will only work if "auto-open" is enabled in "Options".

Need to know how to adjust the door auto lock function.


Not an easy fix! The door lock function was designed to lock doors only. you can however, disable this lock feature by simply cutting the light blue automatic door lock signal wire on the 6-wire harness plug connector located on the chime module (In component center).
