        My Focus is a Mk3 TiX bought new last year, and I initially had all sorts of problems with the keyless entry.  

 

        That is until on a visit to my dealer, it was pointed out that I shouldn't try and lock it by putting my hand round the handle and pressing the little black window, I was trying to lock and unlock it at the same time! Doh!

 

        The other thing I didn't realise at first is that only the door near the sensor will unlock, i.e. if I stand next to the drivers door  the passenger cannot unlock it on the other side.

 

         My excuse is my old age...

Well looks like my drivers door sensor has packed up after 17 months and 21300 miles so just gotta work out when to get ford to sort it as I'm still waiting for parts to do the headlamp TSB.

What TSB is that?

 

Funny thing, my keyless entry/locking is now playing up, going in for a second time on Thursday. Double lock stopped working via keyless, apparently if any error is logged in regards to the keyless/locking system then it disables the double lock functionality. I also still get the occasional incident, where the car doesn't unlock properly. It physically unlocks the doors, but the mirrors remain in and as I open the door the alarm goes off.

 

Here is hoping some further investigation will determine what is going wrong...
