Hello,

 

This past month I've been having issues where I lock my door, get out, shut the door and it unlocks itself thinking the fob is in the car.  I tried my other fob, same thing.  It is intermittent.  I've also noticed an electrical burning smell and the 'lock light' on the dash no longer stays lit - it goes out after about 5-10 minutes.

 

Anyone else have anything remotely like this?

 

Thanks.

The car unlocks itself if you touch the inside of the door handle, and locks if you touch the little black oval (looks like the window on an IR remote).  Could this be what's happening?

 

I don't lock the door before I close it, so I haven't ventured into that part of the state diagram...

No.  I hit the lock on the door, and shut the door and then it (sometimes) automatically unlocks.  I'm not touching the handle or leaving the fob in the car....

 

The lock light on the dash goes off after about 5-10 minutes even though the car is locked.

That's normal, mine does that too.  I just look at it to confirm its locked before I walk away.

That's what I thought, but I've seen it on after many hours before.  The instruction video for it states it should always be on.

Mine never did stay on, so I just assumed that's how it always worked.  Leaving a light on all the time, though miniscule, lowers the charge level of the 12v battery over time and eventually it will die if the car is not used.  For a little light like that being on 24x7 it may mean a day sooner after a month, so its not that relevant.

 

Anyway, it works when I first lock the car and that's all I really need it for as by the time I come back I'm not interested in whether its locked or not, I'm opening the door to get in.

Is this when the car is off?
When I'm in the vehicle, the yellow light is always on when I'm driving and the doors are locked.

Yes this is when you walk out, shut the doors and then lock the car, that light will come on but not stay on indefinitely.

Yeah, when you get out and lock the car, its a confirmation that you did, and if you were not sure, for example after activating the chargepoint charger and plugging the car in....

 

"Did I lock the car already?"

 

Look inside on the dash, light on, yes all set, no light tap the handle button so light is on and all set to walk away.

I don't think I have ever used the tiny light on the dash to check the lock status. When locking from the inside then exiting the car the running lights blink on and off when the door is shut. The running lights also blink on and off when pressing the lock button on the outside of the car. Guess I never thought to look back inside to check that tiny LED on the Dash!

Hey Tom:

 

Usually I'm fiddling around outside the car, maybe unloading stuff from it, or plugging it in, etc, might be a minute or so before I walk away.  I found the little light on the dash useful to tell me if I locked it already or not.
