doors lock then unlock when opening manually

Postby EksJaySix » Fri Nov 29, 2019 11:51 pm

I looked through the manual for my 1993 XJ6 4.0 USA model, and cannot find anything that would cause this: when I try to unlock the car, three seconds later it relocks itself. I don't have the remote, so I am wondering if I inadvertently touched something inside to cause this perplexity. A new battery was installed last week, but I drove the car about 90 miles since that installation and the central locking did not have this issue then.

My car has a similar problem, when I lock it with the key it unlocks then locks then unlocks then locks :lol: If I use the fob it does not happen :? I believe it is called recycling in the trade and can be caused when the door motors are slightly out of sync. Might be worth disconnecting the battery for an hour to see if it will reset itself.

Thanks so much for the suggestion. I shall try that. I figured it is nothing serious.
