Remote Central Locking

After a freezing cold night last night with a very severe frost l thought it might be a problem starting the car this morning.

But the biggest problem was getting in it!
Used the button on the key to unlock the doors and switch the alarm off as usual which worked ok then it locked itself again but the alarm stayed off.Tried again several times but got same result.

Ended up having to de-ice the locks and use the key to unlock.

Now after a few hours and its all thawed out everythings working again as normal.

Anyone else experienced this?

BTW it started perfectly once l had got in it!

nope... but it does kinda make sense...

i reckon either the front passenger door or the drivers door wasn't unlocking properly (frozen) or had a frozen 'i'm unlocked' sensor. when unlocking.. the thinks there's a problem and so reverts to locking all doors again.

thaw it all out and hey presto.

that's my version of events anyways?

make any sense at all.. any one???

Heehee, posted elsewhere that I had the same this morning!

Trick is to catch the mechanism when its unlocked, just before it locks again. It is possible to get in

I will try lubing the bits of lock that can be seen inside the door but suspect the problem is further inside as J77 sez.

Just a matter of timing wink

Once had this problem with a Tipo. It turned out to be the passenger side operating rod was touching the door skin and when it the temp dropped it froze to the door. A small bend in the rod so it cleared the door panel and no more problems

I've had this problem on my present 155 and my alfa 75 in the past, the only thing I could put it down to was that the actual lock inside the door had frozen solid.
