Should the central locking activate when moving?
« on: March 15, 2015, 09:35:54 PM »
Hi
I have looked through the handbook but I can find no reference to whether the central locking should activate when you start moving.

I have a 2009 Galaxy Zetec

Does anyone know if this is a feature of this model?

Thanks
Owen

Chris, I've never owned a Mk3 Galaxy (unlike yourself) so I can't speak from experience but I thought some of the newer Fords could be configured for the central locking to automatically activate when in motion as a security feature?

Hi Paul
It may well be something that can be configured but not something that can be done by the average DIY'er.
There will be a switch for activating/deactivating this feature, our new Sharan has this but as yet not tried it.

It was a while ago, like you say it possibly was something that had to be done with IDS (and it does ring a
-distant!- bell) as opposed to something the vehicle owner could configure themselves- if the O.P's vehicle is doing this perhaps it had been configured at the request of the previous owner?
