Smartlock/central locking having a hissy fit

Went to unlock the car today, central locking went on and off 3 times before unlocking. Also goes off 3 times when I lock it. Doors are all shut, happens no matter how I do it (remote, dash button, opening a locked door).

I believe there was a problem with EL BEMs in the hot weather? Not that an EL BEM could be at fault (being I don't have one and all), maybe it's related though?

Re: Smartlock/central locking having a hissy fit

i had this problem in my EL when it was 20k old. 4 new doorlocks and a BEM and it was fixed. Like you said only happened in hot/humid weather.

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............

Re: Smartlock/central locking having a hissy fit

Have you checked the locks aren't rubbing against something? Try taking all the door trims off and seeing if it still does it. I know mine did when I didn't put the locks back into place properly (installing speakers).

Re: Smartlock/central locking having a hissy fit

I know that with the EF i had, I fixed the power windows and when I put the push button lock on, it went on to far. When you operate it with the remote it would bottom out (so to speak) and come back up. But when you lock it with the key, it locked fine.
So once I worked it out, all i had to do was make sure that I didn't put the button to far down on the yelly plastic guide thing.

Learn from other people's mistakes. You won't live long enough to make them all.

If there's commotion coming from the passenger seat, and nothing but earth going round and round outside the windows,.......then everything is not as it seems!

The only time you have too much fuel, is when you're on fire!
