Door Locks

Okay, here's the problem. I've had it since I got the car but now it is really starting to annoy me security wise. To get into my EA Ghia I unlock the driver side door with the key, all this does is opens the door, then once i'm in the car I have to pull the lock on the door up to open the rest of the doors with the central locking. To me these just seems dangerous as if i wanted to lock myself in the car in a hurry I would have to put the window down and lock the door from the outside with the key. Does anyone know if my locks have been changed to function like this, or if it's another eletrical fault.

(I hope all this makes sence)

Cheers

The link between the snipper rod and door lock has come adrift; take the trim off the door and reconnect it.

Tried it, no luck. They were still connected. Maybe an electrical thing?

once again, check the connections in the "B" pillar on the passenger side of the car. This is prone to corrosion, and can afect all the locks in the car. "B" pillar is the one between the front window and the rear door window, i.e.: between the front door and the back door.
