Good Evening - bought...

Good Evening - bought a 2002 x-type 2.5 AWD (mint condition) 3 weeks ago. All going well EXCEPT when I drive my wife somewhere and she wants to unlock the front passenger door with the engine running she can't unlock her door. WHY?

Mechanic's Assistant: Is this your first time dealing with this issue?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your X-Type yourself? What have you tried so far?

I think/hope the problem is operational not technical

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I'm not technical so easy-peasy please

Does the lock knob on the handle not move or is hard to move? I assume you can unlock it from the driver side? Can I have the last six of your VIN?

When I stop to let my wife out and I'm going on to somewhere else she can't unlock her door. The lock knob does not move and I can't seem to unlock it from my drivers side. C40858
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 5 years ago

This may be the cause if your vehicle has deadlocking. Try placing the vehicle in park and see if the vehicle will unlock. Let me know.

Also start the engine and before moving the vehicle lock the doors then try unlocking.
