Electric Mirrors/Central Locking Issue?

Post by guyver78 » Mon Oct 14, 2019 8:47 am

While power washing my C5 aircross, yesterday I noticed that the electric mirrors unfolded three times on their own. The car has keyless entry. During the wash, the car was switched off and there was a person inside, thus it was not closed. I might be mistaken but I noticed that the electric mirrors were unfolding when I was spraying the wheels with water. To be fair, I am not certain because I was in a little bit of a hurry.

This morning the car drove and closed normally so I do not think that there are apparent issues with sensors or central lock. However, the episode was quite curious.

Presume you had the key in your pocket or in the car, this is a normal behavior.
The touch buttons on the doors are activated by the water, as the water is a Electric conductor.
Had this also with my ex Insignia, Bmw, DS5, so Nothing to worry About 😁
