Graphite powder for locks  Wink

If it's gunned up or seized graphite powder is useless, however once released it is the way to go.

Re: Car locking

Ah! My car in America does that.Most American cars seem to do it. Once you select drive and reach about 5mph the doors lock. Useful security I guess.

Re: Car locking

Auto-locking at a set speed is very common and can usually be turned on or off as required, though sometimes it needs a dealer computer plugged in.
Similar security-related variations are drivers door unlock only on first press of remote,. 2 presses to unlock all.
