      Andy, mines is off auto locking. With the autobox I always put the car in P when stationary and this opens the locks again. Put it in D and they close again. In traffic its just annoying!

        config button/vehicle settings/comfort settings/auto door lock (Activate or??deactivate the automatic door locking function after driving off.)

            Assume you had the ignition on when you tried (does affect some menu access)?

            Otherwise, not in menu = no have, bummer />

              Most auto driver probably know this already, however if you are in full auto and stopped in frost or ice and you try to pull away the wheels will spin. Put it in manual and you can move off in 2nd without spinning the wheels. Another quirk between full auto and manual mode!

                Yeah mines does it aswell now that I've actually tried it! What's frustrating is that it doesn't move up to third fast enough in normal auto when the engine is clearly capable!

                    Finally got around to trying this, couldn't remember the sequence so ended up print screening it

                    Works on my 59 plate!! Thanks so much I've tried everything!

                    Only trouble is, you have to do it every time you get in the car, so I sort of may as well press the lock button on the dash.......



                    You can set this up in the config menu so that when you get above 8mph the doors lock automatically />

                        It's a setting somewhere but only works when it's dark due to auto lights

                          For auto wipers, switch the wiper stalk up to the first setting. To alter sensitivity adjust the collar switch on the stalk.
