This is a recent one to add to the list. My Altea XL (Golf Plus !?) is equipped/coded with the automatic locking once the car reaches about 10 mph. When i turn the engine off and remove the key the central locking is taking about 5 seconds to unlock. It should be immediate, or so i seem to recall it as working. Anyone else had this issue? Have seen mention that it could just be dirty contacts in the ignition switch (which would be nice!!) and hopefully not something requiring major parts and main dealer diagnostic attention!!
Tips and tricks as always gratefully received,
