Central locking thus not work if drivers door is not completely shut.
It sounds like it working when you press the key but we found out
when car boot was empty by thief.
I would expect there to be alarm or some device fitted to tell you the door was not shut
very disappointed with Hyundai for this so check you door.
It was not me but the wife.

Hi Gerryy
Yes, you are quite right that if a door is open when the transmitter is activated the doors (and boot) will not lock. There is an indication of an open door on the instrument panel but the best indicator is the hazard warning lights (and there are six of them!) – it is all on page 4:5 of the manual.

Also the doors will not lock if the ignition switch/steering lock does not 'click' properly when the key is withdrawn. It has happened a few times with my car. It can be corrected by reinserting the key or even by just pressing with a finger on the lock itself until it clicks – this is no real problem once one understands what is going on and as for the doors the answer is to always check that the hazard warning lights flash.

i have found the central locking to be a bit odd at times, it can take 2 clicks to lock. i just check the door after i press the lock button

Another different point on the central locking that may be worth mentioning - it can be programmed (by the dealer) to lock all doors and boot automatically when driving off (above 15-20 mph). It does mention it in the handbook, but I assumed this probably wasn't available on the base (Classic) model. However it is, and a friendly local dealer (not the one I bought the car from) did this for me free of charge this week, takes about 10 minutes. He mentioned that some dealers activate this as part of the PDI check, but obviously my supplying dealer didn't do it.

Hi G, sorry to hear about your theft, I hope it wasn't fishing tackle. :whistling:
I always look at the lights when I lock the car, it's just a habit I have got into, trust nothing to chance, a beep sound would help as well.!!
Also I don't let my wife drive my car, she has her own, and has twice left the boot partially shut, and consequently had a flat battery in the morning.
Women, don't you just love em.!!!! :grin:
