Automatic door locking/unlocking function

Recommended Posts

Believed my CT's doors and boot locked when reaching 20mph, but notice passenger can exit (when engine running and not in 'P') without usual unlocking by pressing door lock switch on drivers door panel.

Boot and rear doors lock and can only be opened by pressing switch.

Dealer advises this is correct, I thought it was a safety feature on cars to stop anyone opening doors from outside. Also said manual is not worth paper written on.

Maybe some advice is available...

Yes, this is correct. The passenger can exit as they are inside. The door should not open from outside. This is so that the passenger can get out of the car in an accident situation.

When I found the correct page I found the answer!

736 pages in owners manual & 353 pages in Navigation manual ... plenty to look through!

For some models only - mine obviously! - 'can open by pulling inside handle even if the lock button is in the lock position.'

I'll mention to dealer how good manual is when I next visit.
