Can we enable extra remote key functions?


Reading through the manual I noticed a few extra funtions that are marked (if fitted) and they include things like locking the doors when you reach 10km's per hour, setting it up so only the drivers door opens on first key press and then secnd press opens the other doors. These are functions like I had on my Peugeot and Renault so maybe only available in Europe or Japan.

I was thinking though, is there any way to enable them on our X-Trails? I read about a "developer" mode on the window switch and wondered if there wasn't some key press combination that we could use to enable on ours or whether it was missing a certain bit in the CPU or something.

Note: I did try the key press combinations to turn it on and off and they didn't work.

This might sound stupid...but what does locking the doors at 10kmph achieve? Apart from making it hard for cops/firies/ambos get in your car when its upside down?

Surely a car-jacker would go for a stationary car---not one driving off?

I think its mainly to keep the kids in the car.
New Commodores automatically lock the doors when "D" is selected in an auto.
I see your point though, if an accident should happen.

My 97 Camry used to do that too and it is indeed for kids safety. The newer cars has a manual "all door lock" feature which I think it more practical as Tony points out.

Actually it is an anti car jacking function (kid locks n the doors are internal. Basically it locks the doors for you so when later you pull up at lghts etc you have locked doors so people can't drag you out. It's a great feature and was standard on almost every European car I've had.

In an accident the doors unlock (this feature is on our x-trails and also most other new cars) and also when power gets cut the doors default to unlock. The new VW's even have a function whereby if you have a big crash the doors unlock, the power gets cut to the fuel pump and the interior lights turn on - helpful to Ambo's.

I was also thinking of slowing down to a set of lights that it locks, as a friend of mine has had been stopped at a set of lights and someone has tried to open the door as he saw her handbag on the front seat. Lucky she always locks her doors when she gets in
