Hi there, I have had my C3 for 4 years with very few problems. That being said, I wouldn't be posting here if I didn't have a problem now :(

I used the fob as normal to lock my car and all the doors are locked.
However, when i went to the front passenger door to check it ( i always check my doors), to my utter surprise, it unlocked the all the car doors!!

I tried it another 5 times each with the same result and as it's fairly late in the evening there is no garage to take it to.

Has anyone come across this problem and does anyone have any sound ideas as how to rectify it either temporarily or permanently please??

Many Thanks in advance!!

Welcome to the forum parky73

Temporarily you can manually lock all the doors with the exception of the boot.

Thank you, I'll have to do that for a temporary fix until the morning. Thanks for the advice :)

Do you get the 'beep' as if one of the doors is still open and you tried to lock it?
