Believe it or not, it just a reminder to make sure that you safely lock the vehicle! In other words a reminder to lock it when you get out

^its not

Lock yourself in with the blipped an try and open any doors, they won't open

That's the safe lock

You lock someone in, they ain't getting out

Try it

(I think central locking button on drivers side will work still though)

If you try the handles when it's locked it won't open door

That's the deadlocks surely, that's been on all T5s?

I've been misinformed - sorry!

SMG told me what I've said, it's just a reminder? Im confused now??

Why would you want to lock someone in the van?

Sorry mate I don't design them, I first thought as did Bognor man it was a reminder to ensure vehicle was locked correctly but it appears that once locked you cannot open the vehicle from the inside thus securing the interior "safely"

I'll get the official write up Tuesday
