Drivers door not unlocking central locking

Hi all

I have a MY13 SE LUX NAV with an issue in the drivers door.

With the central locking locked, the handle when pulled from the inside does not unlock it. I thought this was because RHD cars are non-standard when you've got a worldwide market, and they simply left it on what is now the passenger side. However, all of the doors unlock with one pull on the handle except the drivers.

Any ideas?

Cheers,
Matt

I have had this issue once before but it cleared itself up after an hour or so.

I can get out of the door absolutely fine, it's the 'unlock and open in one motion' bit in the manual which isn't working on the drivers door. Every other door unlocks the central locking except the drivers.

Our My16 CC does not unlock the other doors when the drivers door is opened from the inside I think it's done for safety to stop people climbing into the far side of empty cars at petrol stations etc.

I feel I may not have explained it fully enough.

When the door locks come on as you pull away as set in the My Car menu, the doors are locked and can be opened by pulling the handle on the inside which unlocks that door and allows the occupant to get out. This works on every door excluding the drivers door. With the door locks manually disengaged this is not a problem, only when locked. Has anyone experienced this before?

Apologies if this comes across patronising, I don't mean to be.

Hi Harbon 1
In nearly 2 years of ownership now I have never experienced this issue with the drivers or any door.
It definitely sounds like a fault to me as ANY door opened from the inside once the rolling central locking has engaged should open!
Unless of course the child proof locks have been activated... but they are not fitted to the front doors as far as I know.
Sounds like a trip to the dealer is in order I'm afraid
Best of luck getting it sorted!
