Hi, my daughter bought a 2005 Citroen C3. The central locking works fine when the clicker on the key is used. When the key is inserted in the lock and turned only the driver's door locks. Is this normal? I thought turning the key should lock all doors. I took the car back to the dealer and he told me that is how it is supposed to be.

Yes, this is normal behaviour for a C3 to 2006, I haven't tried on later cars.

The drivers door lock only unlocks the drivers door. The remote fob is used to unlock the all the doors and the boot.

You may also set off the alarm if you use the key in place of the remote unlocking function.
