Hello everyone, I am new to this forum so I hope this will not strike the old hands as a stupid question. I have a 2001 Focus 1.6 Zetec five speed manual, 5 door hatch. It has 105K on the clock and I have come from an 02 Mondeo hatch.

I am a bit puzzled about the central locking on the Focus. If I use the remote, unlocking the car will open all the doors and locking the car will lock all the doors, A second press of the locking button will operate the deadlock. This is exactly the same as the Mondeo and my wife's 99 Fiesta. However, if I use the key to open the car then only the door I use the key in unlocks, rather than the central locking opening all the doors. Similarly, if I use the key to lock the door then only that door locks. This is different to both the Mondeo and the Fiesta, where using the key will work the central locking. Is my central laocking faulty, and if so how can I fix it?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi mate,
Welcome to the forum.
My last car was a MK1 and i know exactly what you are on about.
To manually open all your doors with a key, once you have turned the key to open the lock turn it in the same direction again to open all your locks.
Works in reverse to deadlock all the doors too. Lock the doors with one turn and then again will flash lights and deadlock.
The one door opening routine is an anti hijack feature so as to stop anyone getting in the passenger door unless you let them.
I believe the two phase unlock can be disabled but for the life of me can't remember how.
I'm pretty sure someone here will know for sure.

If I recall correctly, isnt it sit in the car, and press and hold the lock button for 5 - 10 seconds and then the indicator blinks at you to tell you antihijack is on / off?
