Fiat Punto MK2B HGT - Automatic Door Lock

Hi all,

I was hoping someone more knowledgeable than me (not hard) might be able to point me in the right direction and provide some insight into what actually controls the doors to lock automatically when pulling off please? Usually happens when getting to 10/15mph.

I have the opportunity to remove the system from a HGT that's sadly reached end of life and install it in my prized Sporting. Hardly an earth shattering mod lol but still.

I've trawled the forum and think there has been some talk on it but seemed to be related to installing something similar from a third party so in the dark about where/what to look for.

Any info/help would be greatly appreciated as always.

Thanks all

Automatic door locking at 20 Km/h (known as SpeedLock) is controlled by the car's body computer. There should be a setting in the menu to switch it on or off. The owner's handbook will explain how to do it.

Thanks Davren. Doesn't sound like it's something I'll be be able to switch over then to my Sporting. That said, I wonder if my sporting has the feature already, I've never noticed. I'll take a look. Cheers again!

Re: Fiat Punto MK2B HGT - Automatic Door Lock

Does anyone know how this system works? Are the mechanisms in the door different to normal central locking? I wonder if this can be installed in my sporting, it doesn't have the options via the speedo computer at the moment.

I doubt there any physical difference just software in the BCU to send the signal when you reach the correct speed
