Hi all, We have just bought a Mk III Renault Clio with 5 doors. When you unlock the car on the remote only the driver's door unlocks, all the others remain locked until you double plip the remote. This is the same when you pull up and somebody goes to get in the rear, if you unlock the doors the rear doors are still locked. Is there anyway to reprogram the locking so that all doors unlock at the same time. I have phoned our local renault dealer but they seem to think that it is like this for the uk market. Any help much appreciated, it is driving my wife crazy especially when she has to get the baby in / out of the car. Thanks.

Have you checked the child locks on the rear doors?

Does the car have RAID - that's when the doors automatically lock when the car reaches over 5 mph?

When opening have you tried holding the unlocking button down until you hear a double click from the locks?

Thanks for your reply.

The doors do unlock from the outside but you have to press the button twice. This is a problem say when you pull up somewhere and your passenger gets out then goes to open the back door, they can't get in without you having pressed the key fob twice.

The RAID works as expected, it seems that the only way to open the back doors is with a double press of the fob. The child locks stop you opening from the inside as they should, it is the opening from the outside that is the issue.

Like most modern cars when you depress the fob button once to lock the car it only single locks - this is where anyone inside the car can get out but no-one can get in. Either double pressing or holding the lock button down will the locks double lock (you'll hear a double click at the locks) preventing both getting in or getting out. Primarliy this is to prevent anyone breaking a window and opening the car from the inside.
Does operating the internal central locking button not over-ride the double lock facility.

Both the RAID and drivers door only facility is meant to reduce the risk of anyone jumping into your car when stopped at road junctions , etc. Mainly this idea was introduced to prevent bag snatchers and the liklihood of snatching either kids or valuables from the passenger seats.
I appreciate some peoplr see this facility as a nusiance whilst others view it as a good security device.
Have you tried seeing what happens when you holding the unoock buttom down for a second or so?:)
