Rear door locking issue on 159


Junior Member
Can anyone suggest why the rear doors on my 2008 159 are not locking with the central locking?

I wonder whether the couple of switches, that look like the key can be usesd to turn then have anything to do with it.

The car was laid up for a while and the battery had died, during this time I think someone has had a fiddle with the car as I found the rear door ajar a couple of times.


The “switches” will be for the child locks.

I’d make sure the door that was ajar is closing properly. Could be, not that someone opened it but that it isn’t latching.

Also try disconnecting the battery, leave for a while then reconnect and lock and unlock the car.
