    We have a 2015 Chausson 718 on a Transit chassis, and it has one "feature" that's driving me mad.

    I can understand the cab doors automatically locking themselves if you don't open one of them within 45 seconds, but the habitation door locks itself after 45 seconds irrespective of whether you have opened it or not. This has caused several near misses when I have gone in, dropped the keys on the table or hung my coat up then popped out again, only to hear the " click" as the door has locked behind me. Each time I have thankfully had the spare keys to hand,but that won't always be the case. Is there any way of defeating this stupid system? I know the cab system can be changed by a Ford dealer, but the hab door is a different thing controlled by a separate button on the fob.

    Ta,

    Bob

    My 2012 fiat Ducati van if locked with the key push fob will remember this setting
    So if you open the Han do manually. It will lock it again when you close the door

    You need to unlock with the key fob and then it is ok

    Hope this helps
