I've recently got a Focus Mk2.5 1.6 Zetec (10 plate 2010). When I first got the car the doors could be unlocked with the key fob and if a door wasn't opened within 45secs it would automatically relock.

However the doors now don't automatically relock at all and, as far as I can see, there's nothing in the car's manual stating how to remove this feature or re-enable this useful feature. All it states is that this feature will function but not if the key is in the interior of the car.

It stopped working after I'd been testing a spart keey without a remote control and opening and closing the door manually. After this the automatic relocking has failed to work so must have inadvertently gone through a sequence to disable the automatic relocking.

I would therefore be grateful if anyone could inform me of the sequence I need to follow to re-enable the automatic relocking when the doors have been shut for more than 45secs.

Have something to contribute?

I don't know if theres a sequence to re-activate it, or how you managed to de-activate it.

But I do know it can be enabled with ELM

My car didn't come with it already activated, but I activated it myself by hooking the car up to my laptop with an ELM327 cable and used the ELM software.

Theres that many features ford left turned off.

Have a mooch in the focus guides section and you'll find the guide on ELM

The elm327 will allow you to re-activate this feature and many others.

Where can I get a genuine version of the ELM327??. I've read a lot about cloned imports that are just naf.

Many thanks I had a look at the guides you mentioned and the screen grabs of the software with the translatons.

Unfortunately, and please do correct me if I'm incorrect, I didn't notice any feature that would enable or disable the automatic relocking.

There was a section for auto locking but that's completely different to automatic relocking in that auto locking is where the doors lock after moving off and attaining a certain set speed whereas automatic relocking is where it locks all the doors when the vehicle has been stood for 45secs with all doors shut and the ignition turned off or none of the doors are opened within 45secs of unlocking with the remote fob.

This automatic relocking appeared on my vehicle after I enabled automatic locking - at least, I had not noticed it before.

tommy1 - don't know about naf cloned imports - I paid £5.98 for mine and the only problems I had were self-inflicted - if you are prepared to wait for delivery a similar one is now available for £6.20. http://www.ebay.co.u...=item3f1c629875
That wasn't a bad price to enable instant fuel and automatic locking which is all I wanted to do

I can confirm you are incorrect ;)

Yes theres the autolocking option, but there is an auto-relocking option too. I believe it's on the second page to the page you would of seen a screen shot of. I know it works because I activated it myself.

I actually turned it back off because I found it annoying lol. I unlocked my car so that i could open the bonnet without setting the alarm off. Was doing some work under the bonnet, n like you said the car kept autorelocking itself after 45seconds which was annoying when i kept having to get things from in the car while under the bonnet n kept having to unlock it lol.

But yeah you can activate auto locking as well as auto relocking.

Also, the translated screen shots you've seen are of the first very outdated elm software. Sinse then, english versions have been created so there is no nees to translate or configure it with putty files etc.

If you look around the last few pages of the elm guide you should find a download link to the english version.

Does this scanner need to be modified, or is it 'plug and play'? I'm interested in activating some of the hidden features.

depends what you want to activate. i know things like instant fuel readout doesn't require modifying.

but yes for a lot of things it will need rewiring.

Thanks for this posting Stan as it got me thinking that if the automatic relocking is also enabled when the auto locking is enabled (the latter I don't think fitted to my car) then I could search for a sequence to enable the auto locking and it may then enable the automatic relocking I have.

Success! I actually found a sequence to do this process without the need for the ELM327 and for anyone interested you do the following;


Get into car and close all doors.

Insert key into ignition.

Turn ignition on.

Operate drivers door lock switch on (lock) and off (unlock) three times.

Turn ignition off.

Operate drivers door lock switch on (lock) and off (unlock) three times.

Turn ignition on.

Operate drivers door lock switch just once.

The automatic relocking (also auto locking if fitted) is now enabled/disabled.


After the above sequence you then need to exit the car and lock it using the remote fob, then unlock it and see if the automatic relocking is functioning/disabled.

A tip is not to do this too fast to enable the soloniods to charge up between operations or you may find that the locks won't operate until had a while to recover.
