Anyone who is having problems with the child locks on their C3 may be

Secondly, the main locking system will now "auto lock" as soon as the car
reaches 4 mph. Obviously this added feature can be switched off if not
required. If anyone wants any more information about this software
upgrade, please ask!

This facility can be switched off with the ignition key in the run
position and the main (not the child locking) locking button held in until
you hear a confirmation 'bong'. Re-setting the facility uses the same
Do you have children? You might not believe how inquisitive/stupid they can
be; or how quickly they can go from rational, reasonable human beings to
"I'm running away now!" (at 70mph on the motorway) or whatever.
