Phantom Door Locking

Post by wanderdüne » Sat Sep 21, 2019 10:49 am

Hi, the front drivers side door on my 2006 XC90 randomly locks when I close it. No difference if it is the only door unlocked or if all doors are unlocked. Any ideas as to what is going on here?

Yes! I'm interested as well to see what solutions come up. I've got the same problem on my 07 XC90 3.2. Seems to be random and doesn't matter if car is running or not. Also for me, if driver door is opened while engine running and after all doors are locked, it doesn't auto lock again when start driving. Not sure if that's standard or a glitch.

My 2005 XC90 2.5T with 120K recently developed a "random locking of RR door".
Went to junk yard and got another RR actuator and installed it.
Problem solved.
