Door unlocking problems anyone?

Hi,

I have had something totally weird happen to my front left and front rear door on two separate occasions.

On each occasion the door in question just would not open. Using the unlock button on driver's door, using the remote, using the door handle - none of it worked. In both situations we actually had to crawl across the seat to get out.

We then left the vehicle locked overnight and then in morning seemed to work again.

I am sending it in to have Volvo look at but has anyone else had a similar problem. Any ideas.

Thanks.

Adrian

I can't say that I have experienced this in the 14 months I have had my V40.

This door lock problem has just happened to me - o/s rear door refuses to unlock. My car is in for service next week so I will get the dealer to sort it out.

Just wondering, how do they replace the lock if the door won't open?

Just had mine fixed. The nearside rear would not unlock once the auto lock came on as I moved off. Sometimes it would unlock using the unlock all doors button other times it wouldn't. Took it into the dealer who said there was a upgraded lock with a different wiring loom as it was a known fault. I had to wait about 3-4 weeks for it to arrive. Took them about an hour to fit, there have been no problems since. My vehicle is MY13 cross country D2.

Known issue with a safety item but no recall...surely not!!!

I had one of mine go a couple of months ago and the dealer thought I was being a bit funny when I pointed out I expected it to be dealt with without booking it in in advance as it is a safety issue

Thumbs down V40 lock door lock problems

I have a 63 reg V40 D3, 16000 miles. The first lock to fail was front passenger door. Unable to open from inside or out. As I had a disabled passenger this was a real problem. I sent for Volvo assist who were with me in just under an hour. By that time I'd managed to open the door by continually trying from the remote key fob and the driver's door mounted locking button. The car was returned to the dealer (Rybrooks, Chester) and the internal door mechanism changed under warranty. I am now experiencing the same fault with the rear nearside door and , more worryingly, the drivers door. The car is now booked in for those faults to be attended to, again, under warranty. I feel that as there are safety issues relating to this problem Volvo should have issued a recall.
