Central locking S-type

My central locking is playing up - it locks after the set time after
starting and driving off buy then pops open again. I try to lock it
internally but it refuses to stay locked. Also when locking the car locks
and pops open immediately. double clicking gets the deadlocks down.

Everything seems closed and there is no warning to say anything is not
closed.

Any ideas ?

2000 S-type 4.0 V8

I've got a 2000 Mondeo which is probably largely from the same parts
bin and that locks and unlocks itself whenever it bloody well wants to.

I had a problem on my XK8 Convertable that was diagnosed as being the
computer that controlled the central locking. The resolution was to
reset the computer (pull the fuse then re-insert) you may need to
reset the electric window mechanism if they are on the same circuit.

Thanks ALL

It seems to be happy now after a stint of unlocking itself all the time -
having to double click to get the deadlocks down.

Will remember the reset thing.

Re: Central locking S-type

I've had this same problem with my 96 Ford Explorer, and I can tell you that the fuse reset works fine, my key for diagnosing the issue was that the truck does an auto unlock when you turn the key twice, this was the only thing that wasn't working properly when you tried to unlock the vehicle, so I would say that something is causing that to stick, and cutting power to it momentarily resets the on off position of the switch attached directly to the lock... but yes the reset fixed it so I just hope it was more than momentary
