Hi hope this is the right place to put this I have a problem with my central locking on the car what is very strange.
When I try and lock the car with fob key or the inside button on either front door it just unlocks stright away but will unlock the doors with fob if I lock manually by holding buttons in till central locking stops I have tried pressing the sensors to enter test mode and hazards flash on all doors and bonnet so can not find out what the problem is any advice would be appreciated thanks in advance Roy

the car doesnt have keyless does it?

 

Otherwise, it sounds to me like perhaps you should try the spare key. It may be a faulty transmitter that is constantly sending a signal?

if was keyless, not necessarily, but as you need a key, I would expect it should. It could be the Central Locking module is the problem. do the doors lock ok if the battery is disconnected...?

very weird, is it only when the car is with no keys, or only when the keys are in the electrical position / ignition on?

sounds to me like one of the doors isnt locking. If the bonnet lock, front door locks, or the boot lock fail to initiate, I believe none of the doors lock.

 

Disconnect the battery and try lock the doors individually and see what happens...

Sounds to me like one of the front door modules have gone faulty, the only way to test for this is to disconnect the front doors, one at a time and try locking the car with the remote, if the lock bounces back open with the passenger door disconnected, but not with the drivers door disconnected, then it's the drivers door at fault.

 

Likewise, if the lock bounces back open with the drivers door disconnected, but not with the passenger door disconnected, then it's the passenger door at fault.
