Doors locking 1 min after unlocking

Hi. I have a problem that I will unlock the car whilst walking towards it. Then, I will open the back door to chuck the dog in. Whilst doing this the car will automatically relock. At first I thought it might be a safety feature like ‘whoops you accidentally unlocked the car so I will lock it back up for you’ as it never relocks if I open the front doors. Does anyone know how to unprogram this as I have very nearly locked my keys in the car as it also does this when I opened the boot. Thanks

Mine does this also. I guess opening the driver's door is the master control. For the door locks. A similar scenario is the auto lock is only centrally unlocked by the drivers door. It’s a fun scenario when one stops, passenger gets out and can’t open tailgate. Driver gets out and opens tailgate without difficulty much to the mystification of the passenger!

I can't comment if this regards the new Cactus but my 65 plate will not re lock if I open any door or the boot within a minute.
If I well remember in the "driving assistance" menu on the screen there is a sub menu with vehicle settings for lights and selective locking/unlocking.

If you have the key in the ignition switch the door won`t lock, as it senses the key and doesn`t lock on you. Most cars with central locking do this trick when you back is turned. HAL 9000 hates you. :lol:

You cant lock the doors with the key in the ignition also. But it doesn`t regulate for stupid. As I locked my key in the back shelf after closing it, after leaving it whilst removing something. Lucky for me I did it outside my front door.

So popped back in the get the spare fob. :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:
