Locked car while driving.
#1
Sorry if this has been dealt with in a previous  thread . I have done a search and nothing came up.  On the My citroen app it appears to acknowledge that the door being locked, could be a problem for the emergency services to enter the vehicle,  in an emergency. As a safety measure, it recommends that you never leave without taking the remote with you. This is not the answer if you are trapped inside unable to open the door from the inside or unconscious? 
Is there a way to disable this? I have tried pressing the padlock button, it opens the locks, but then locks them again.
While searching for a solution on chrome , it took me back to this forum and a post in 2015. Where people had locked themselves  out of their car,  by leaving their keys in the car and shut the door. I could see me doing this quite easily by going back into the house if I forgot something.  Can this still happen on the e berlingo?  Is there anything else like this I should be aware of, or do I just find out the hard way as I experience it!?

Emergency services always break the window in case the door is locked and the window is not already broken from the accident. It's in their muscle memory so you'll only lose a second or two.

Cars with keyless entry cannot be locked with the fob in the car. Unless the fob battery is empty.

Not so sure on that last bit -the Sprinters we have at work were quite frequently automatically locking out their drivers after a time interval.
It was eventually sorted but they all carry the fobs in their pockets now .
Had a few go through their washing machines in fact....
It is on my to do list.
But not right at the top

The lock switch, try pressing and holding to stop it working, my old works Berlingo locked the doors, but pressed the button for about 10 seconds it stopped it locking.
As for locking when out keys in the car, Mmm the car remembers better than we do.

Only happened to me once in the 90s when aftermarket alarms were the norm.

Jtr Rhyl, I shall try that and get back to the group.

Mine is not a smart entry, so does this mean I could lock the keys in the car?  If I were to try this, do I just need the second set of keys to open the door?

Just want to be clear. Thanks.

Thanks Jtr Rhyl, your advice works. I can now choose if I want the doors open or locked while driving! On the motorway probably open , around town at night shut!

That has lead me onto another thought. Why?  If in an acciden, say on a motorway,  you are not more likely to be thrown out from the door with it unlocked are you? The idea of it is just to prevent someone sealing from the  seats say, if you were stopped at lights?

I have still not dared try to lock my keys in the car! I would like reassurance that provided I have the spare set of keys, I can open the doors!

Mine won't let you lock the doors if the keyless fob is still inside the car

Depends on how safe your area is, but the auto locking is to stop people getting in while you're driving it (Stopped in traffic etc)!

Mine is never locked, it was made for females OAP in the car on there own at night. But if a nerves person, its there for you to lock the doors from inside, good for night stay outs though. 
As for the car locking it self, think its crazy, but the car makers think they know best for every one. 
But like the Berlingo Peugeot 5008 auto with paddles, I think lots better than the normal auto gearbox Ford and others put in.
So sometimes they know best.
