My 1999 Mk2 1.8TD has just started doing a really strange thing. Can be driving along, all locks open, and all of a sudden all the doors lock themselves ????
The only other thing I have noticed is that sometimes you can hear a clunk from the rear of the car as if one of the c/l motors is operating ???
Any ideas guys ?

Mine works perfectly with handles or remote, its just this thing about locking itself whenever it feels like it. Its only a worry because I can imagine it unlocking itself at some point, probably on Fishergate car park in Preston !!!!

Mine is doing exactly the same thing mate but I can open it from the inside with the handle. I really dont know where to start!! I can hear the same thing from the rear! I think I will try to pinpoint which door it is coming from then strip it down. Might be water.

Mine is doing that as well. Just another entry into the catalogue of errors that's developing at the mo. Nearly locked myself out of the car as I'd left it running and thought oh :BEEP: better turn it off incase it locks!!

Good luck chaps, i'm perservering with it at the mo, having a monster battle with water loss/pump/HG probs :(

I first started having trouble with mine last year after i used a power wash on it. for about a week it kept blowing a fuse once i'd locked the doors and I would have to use the key to unlock it. After a week in the sun in cornwall it seemed to cure itself. I presume it dried out. Its flared up again recently tho. you just hear a click click then clunk and you're locked in....

[color:eek:range][/color]Mmmmm... seems to be a pattern emerging here!
Mine is doing it a lot more this week, and we've just had two solid days of Monsoon in Lancashire (nice for ducks though).
But here's a twist in the tale, I kid you not, the road from my house towards Southport passes underneath the National Grids' high tension pylons (132Kv I think), as I drive under the pylons, hey presto, it locks. !!!!!!!!
Answer that one for me Mr Powergen ?

It is 400,000 volts and run by Central Networks,spookily enough when i pass under some near bedford every night my interior lights (not the spots)both go up and down like some one playing with a dimmer switch,this is with the switches in the centre off position as well,no power to the bulbs but magnetic field induced in the filaments - and one of the rear doors locks and unlocks twice at the same time.
