Question about 2007 Audi A3
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.
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!
