I have experienced similar problem with car locking/unlocking. I drove home, pulled key out, but I didnt hear ''thunk'' sound, so car didnt unlock. I closed the door and pressed lock mechanism on key, and nothing. LED on key lights up, like it transmists signal, but nothing else happens. I then needed to press lock/unlock button on the dashboard of the car, and all worked again. Manual locking/unlocking worked fine all the time.

However, he then held in the door switch so the car thought the door was locked and locked the doors; single-clunk, car locked. What do you think happened when he let his finger off the switch, imitating the door being opened WITHOUT being unlocked?
Nothing! The interior light came on to assist the burglar. I expected the alarm to go off, but no. Just the helpful interior light.
Not what I expected! The power to surprise?
Did you wait the 30 seconds it takes for the alarm to activate before you opened? You can see when the alarm is activated on the blinking/static light on top of the dash.

Good point! No, we didn't wait the 30 seconds.

Thanks Pinbot.
Of course my car worked fine this morning, but I'll keep an eye out. If / when it happens again I'll try the unlock button on the centre console and see if that makes it sort itself out.
The worrying thing for me is that it seemed that the doors I need to get children in and out of were locked.
Perhaps I should worry less and just try to find what causes the problem. If nothing else I should try to get to the point where I can repeatably "cause" the fault in order to assist the dealer.
Thanks for your post,
Ed.

The alarm does not go into the ARMED state for another 30 or so seconds after locking. You should see a change of the mode of the small red light under the windshield when it does.

Have you tried locking/unlocking the doors from the inside, using the button on the central console? Does it work every time? What about using the key? Try to identify whether the problem only manifests itself when you use the remote to lock/unlock the doors. Have you checked/replaced the remote battery or tried the other remote key (i presume you got two with your car)?

No, at the time I tried restarting the engine. Next time I will try the button on the central console.

I'm not sure if it worked every time and I didn't use the key. Now that I am looking out for this problem I will video the behaviour so I know exactly what I did to overcome it.

I have not replaced the battery, and I did indeed try both remotes. (On Sunday at least, not yesterday. On Sunday I was at home.) Both remotes failed to unlock the car but they did flash their little lights. The RAC guy had a remote checker (RF detector?) which confirmed that the remote works, but we already knew that.

It was the car which got into a funny state, not the remote control.

Odd, isn't it? Blame the software - that's what most people do!

How about disconnecting the car battery. Leave for a while and then reconecting. A reboot so to speak.

Sure I read within this ceed section that disconnecting the battery causes a bunch of other problems? Steering & something else has to be reset by dealer or similar?

If in doubt, Accelerate!
