Hi,

Have any of you experienced one of your doors' child safety lock coming on? It's happened on two occasion where the lock comes on for the same door. Definitely a mechanical issue, not sure if the dealer would even bother with that.

P.S. People aren't slamming my doors or anything, it's just weird..

Sounds like whatever the detent mechanism that holds it in the unlocked position isn't working. Never seen it before but anything is possible.

If you're under warranty, the dealer will fix it IF they can replicate it. This is why I hate intermittent problems. Play with it more and see if you can make it happen reliably so you can demonstrate it to them.

I figured out how to replicate it. If you open the door handle repeatedly + closing the door slowly makes the pin shift down until one more door handle pull locks it into position. I guess I will be using some tape to hold it together temporarily. Hopefully the dealer can fix it, although it seems like it's going to be a pain, they might have to dismantle the door to get to it.
