Hi

I have a focus titanium 2010 mk2.5 , I used to have a fiesta zetec mk7 which had a button on the dash to lock all doors so no one can open them from the outside , I cant seem to find such a button on my focus?

I will look in my owners Manuel , just feeling a bit lazy today!!! :ph34r: .

I have noticed a button on my drivers door just above the window controls which has a shape of the car and a sonar type image in the middle of it, could that be it?

cheers

Mitch

You see the door handle the handle part been the longer silver handle. Just above it is a smaller silver button (which looks part of the handle) Hit that and theres you door locks.

Alternatively lock the car with you outside looking at a interior door handle and your'll see where to press



EDIT: People can now read this without glasses

The button you are referring too is to turn off the interior alarm scan.

as said above where you pull the handle to open the door from inside , above than is the locking button which you push once to single lock and push it further to double lock , double lock is not advised if your inside the car.

Ok , I take it it only locks from outside when I use this feature? and if I pull on the handle it opens as normal?

cheers

not exactly the buttm locks the doors while you are in the car its a safety feature to prevent some degenerate trying to car jack you at trafic lights.when you pull the handle to get out it opens

Just to point out the obvious, on the MK2 / 2.5 I believe that the lock switch is on the drivers door, just above the big handle, is the lock switch that doesnt move as you open the handle.

Stand outside the car, and lock the car, you will see what I mean.

All you need to do is push that in, and all doors lock from the outside, but can be opened from the inside.

I know it seems obvious but I have often gone into a deep and complex spiral for such a very easy fix.

thanks guys , found it and it worked.

Only thing is I don't think its possible to push it twice to double lock it , from the inside , but that's something not really something you would want to do anyway like you said.

You are right, I’ve just had a look and it does what you said.

Thanks for that tip, I hadn’t realised it had been moved, my last car was a 1999 Mondeo, on that car you pushed in the door handle that was used for opening the door, its not something I generally need to use in Sussex, we don’t have a lot of car-jacking here. :)

Glad to be of service, 12 montyhs later and no Focus still glad to be useful and not waste valuable typing space :P lol

Mitch, you cant fouble lock the car on the door itself, you would need to double tap the lock button on your key before placing in the ignition. Even then, I think when you start the car, it goes to first lock rather than double lock, this would be a safety feature, rather than a problem.

Last thing you want is your car upside down, in a ditch and the car double locked so no one can get in...

Dont worry guys , I wasn't planing on doing that :) , just wanted to make sure it was not possible to do it on the door handle itself.
