Remote locking

G'day all, just found you guys.

Bought myself a second hand 2003 3dr zetec a few months ago, unfortunately don't have much cash left over for mods etc but I'll get there eventually.
Thought someone might be able to explain to me how the remote locking works. If I press the lock button once the car locks and can be opened from the inside. If, once the car is already locked, I press the lock button twice, my indicators flash and the doors can't be opened from inside. I figured this is some sort of anti-theft device, maybe someone can tell me more.

(I ask because yesterday I locked the car behind me with my girlfriend still in, she was stuck in there for 2 hours till I got back and probably just about snapped the door handle off.)

Hmmmm I gotta try that one, keep her off me back for a while!
Yes its a anti theft thing, your Zetec must have the alarm option fitted... your G/F should've set it off tho, as mines got the ultrasonic detectors!(movement sensors)

Re: Remote locking

dont think that the sonic sensors were an option in the zetec were they, i thought only on the ST ?

rotfl though.. the poor g/f :D

you can also program the doors to auto lock when you go above about 5mph or something, works quite well in mine :)

Re: Remote locking

funny how little some of you Focus owners know about your cars!!!!!!!

One lock to lock outside, can be opened from inside.
Second press of the lock button within 2 seconds will deadlock the interior handles and flash the indicator. Should only be used when there is nobody in the car. I's a standard fitment on ALL LX, Ghia, Zetec and ST170's. Only the CL hasn't got this feature.

I always double lock the button just to deadlock, anything to make life harder or less convenient for a thief. It also flashed the indicators which is a visual reminder if you're walking away. But that'll explain why it was locking ur girlfriend in!!! Just single lock it next time!!! Or leave her the keys you dog!!!

Re: Remote locking

Hi there Kazza,

I did that too.... only thing was, I knew exactly what I was doing!! It was only for a laugh and for 30sec....like you, I wanted to keep my door handles on the door.

I remember a time when the Focus was new to you too, Zetec. No need for comments like this.

Congrats on your new purchase Kazza - get some pictures up too!

Hope it's been explained to you how the whole alarm setup works well enough now, if not, PM me and I'll go into it more.

And welcome to the forums!

Tim

Re: Remote locking

Thanks for clearing that up. It's interesting just how many things like that aren't explained when you purchase a car. Don't remember reading it in manual either but I may be wrong.
Will get some pics up as soon as I find a camera :)

Re: Remote locking

Tim, no need to get your panties twisted. I sold these things for 6 months and it is a requirement that it be explained to every customer, hence my amazement at 3 people not knowing. I wasn't laughing at Kazza, more so the others who were here before... I was just surprised when not only him but everyone else wasn't sure.

It is in the manual too, along with how to code your remote to unlock both doors (on a 3 door) or only the driver's door on one press, or all 4 doors (5 door) or only the driver's door. Can be a pretty handy feature if u'r in and out a lot and concerned about ppl jumping in!!!

Don't take everything to be an attack on others mate, because without the people who actually know the answer there's no point even having the forums. I'm personally a bit over the forums at the moment, hence me not being on here much nowadays after my move to Melbourne. I need to get a life and have a break before I get back into the forums 24hr a day like I used to!!! I'll be online soon enough at my new place so I'll be back with a vengeance. Friendly vengeance that is!!

Re: Remote locking

If you know ST's you know that the second push arms the alarm, with one push its not armed... unless mines a dud!

Re: Remote locking

Zetec - I appreciate the fact that you enjoy answering questions, it probably would have been better to explain yourself more when making comments such as the one I highlighted earlier, as it can be taken offensively. I am not getting upset nor taking it further, just highlighting how it comes across, especially to someone who is new to the forum. Thanks for clarifying your comment. Any problems, please PM me. Cheers.

Kazza - I didn't get told how alot of systems on my car worked - no doubt the Ford crew didn't have time to sit down and read through the whole handbook with me. That's what is good about this forum, you can ask anything you want and there'll be people willing and able to answer them!

Can't wait for the pictures!

Timmeh.
