Hi,
I see that Bentleys and R.R.s of around 1996 year have a door Lock/Unlock switch on the each front door trim.
Is this a simple manual lock/unlock system or a more sophisticated system that locks when the car moves / engine is started and unlocks when the car / engine stops?
Many thanks,
Darryl

From JR2 on another forum, the following info about settings for the alarm system. One needs the factory Omiscan diagnostic unit to do this.

Service personnel can, at the owner's request, activate any of the nine customer option features of the anti-theft alarm system, which are normally disabled, namely:

*) Automatic locking on forward gear selection
*) Automatic unlock on ignition off
*) Automatic unlock on ignition key removal
*) Automatic headlamp illumination on wiper operation
*) Automatic headlamp illumination on walk-up
*) Automatic headlamp illumination on walkway
*) Automatic arming
*) Automatic locking
*) Silent arming and disarming

Omar, Jim,

Thanks for the information. I looked at the circuit diagram but couldn't see much extra circuitry.
Jim's answer indicates that it's in the anti-theft circuit/components.
Regards,
Darryl
