    Is my Astra clever??

    Last week I never moved my car for 7 days, however it did spent alot of time with the doors open, ice working and other electricals switched on etc.

    By the end of the week, although the central locking still worked, it refused to dealock via the remote. Which was a blessing as I'd delocked the drivers door. However, after a decent run all returned to normal.

    Is this a clever safety feature that prevents the dealocks working if the battery gets low or just strange syncronicity??

    You probably just removed the keys from the ignition and exited via the passenger door.

    From when the accessory is turned off the car needs to see the drivers door open at least for safty reasons I guess

    Nope, tried all the open and closing doors tricks/ switching ignition on/off etc etc - it just wouldn't deadlock no matter what.

    Althought the door light may have come on when the drivers door was opened there are 2 circuits to it, one side could be failing.

    Saying that though there is always the possibility the car knows when the battery is nearly flat so doesn't deadlock and it's just something I haven't heard of before

    Humm, just odd that once I'd given it a run and got some charge back in the battery it's been ok since.

    Cheers for the input
