Well I think the
I wonder if your key in switch is working properly...
You shouldn't be able to "slam lock" a P38 from about 96 onwards... If you've hit the sill lock button and closed the door, it should always unlock all the doors automatically... Especially if the key is detected as being in the ignition... Definitely something strange going on there
I think it's the door open switch (or whatever the correct name is). It was frosty this morning so I started the car and started scraping the windows. Not wanting to get locked out I left the window open AND the door :) I was suprised to see the windows rise up as I was scraping them - the EAS was doing its thing even with the door open. Yep, no Door Open RH-F showing on the dash. It seems the door is showing closed all the time.
So if you're working under the car and using the door/tailgate open technique to disable the EAS I'd say it's well worth checking the dash before you crawl underneath!
