Deadlocking Car.......

11 posts in this topic

Just one LAST query lol as a newbie to the Focus and have lots questions.....

When you deadlock the vehicle with the remote, and sit inside when doing so, you are unable to unlock / open passanger door from inside and the lock / unlock button is 'locked' however I am able to unlock and open the drivers side without remote and set alarm off.

Thought the purpose of deadlock was that ALL locks are not able to be opened from inside once deadlocked?

Is this another one for my list of niggles?

Cheers

why not for the cash its worth it simply screws in to the centre console no i never really use them but switch youre headlights on and youre fogs and see the difference the fogs are yellow looking compared to the new bulbs so were the sidelight bulbs so i changed the lot makes a hell of a difference especially with the fogs when you do use them
