Hi All, Brought my Vel Satis 3.0 dci privilege yesterday and all was fine. Then it started occasionally not locking but eventually did and today it wont lock at all…. even if i lock it with the key only the near side doors lock. Any ideas? The card has a new battery so its not that. Any help would be great, Luke.

Do you have a spare keycard and if so does that work?

Is the key rattling when you shake it,if so the little button has come unsoldered from the circuit board.

Lagunas suffer from this,you can unlock it but not lock it a common issue.

Quite right,it cold possibly be a faulty card or at the extreme your car battery. The spare key only locks and unlocks the passenger door. After gaining entry use the central locking button to open the remaining doors. To securely lock the car,lock with central button,exit the passenger door and use the key to lock that door. It's a bit fussy, I had the same problem and that's how I managed to secure the car.

Have a look at the actuators and try lubricant silicone first.

   It wouldn't be the first mechanism I have saved by stripping and cleaning.

      I have not been into the system on Vel but have done many other cars. You will have to inspect how they work and check the solenoids too. They may need a clean with Servisol contact cleaner.

From your description it sounds like the same problem I had. The noise is the motors in the door lock trying to actuate the lock. It won't lock because, in my case, there was a small piece of plastic that had snapped off inside the lock mechanism.

I took mine apart and it was unreparable so I had to buy a whole new mechanism from Renault.

If you check my post on this subject, you will see what's possibly wrong with yours.

"Vel Satis Questions"  Unable to lock Rear Door. Central locking problem.

Sorry but I can't seem to post a direct link in this post.

What is really annoying is that when the lock fails you can't lock the door but all the other doors do lock.

Good luck.
