It's always worth cleaning the electrical contacts in the door edge before investigating further/ Finish the cleaning with a light smear of conductive grease, Vaseline.

When that happened on mine it was the locking solenoid. I have a cable twixt door and frame, not contacts.

I am not familiar with the Broadway. If it is a cable through the hinge side of the door, my suggestion is pointless. Soory.  Keith

This happened to our Malvern - just got “ out of sync” because we opened lock from inside without using key . Sorted it out if lock when inside and open with key . May have to manually put step down a few times …

If you have electrical contacts it would be easy to spot on  the door and frame .as would a twisting wire,

A pair of square shinny sprung buttons and corresponding contacts at the bottom of the habitation door jam.  If the buttons are not moving in and out freely, proper contact may not be made when the door is shut.  Manipulate the buttons with some WD40 if this is the case.

Had the same problem with mine, door was out of sync with the remote after I opened it from the inside before unlocking via the button on the front, so in effect over-rode the lock.
I needed to be outside, lock the van with the remote, then re-lock the hab door with the key...

I have just bought an Autosleeper Burford and the habitation door does not lock remotely with the vehicle key. When I took it back to get it checked I was told that Autosleeper no longer connect the door to the vehicle electronics and so disable the autolock feature as it was causing too many problems with the new Mercedes sprinter electrics. I will therefore have to lock the habitation door manually with a key each time. Not very satisfactory on a top of the range model!

The contacts, wiring and solenoid are all there - just not connected.

We have same issue on EB as well. We have found that if we forget to push the lock button on the dashbiard to 'open' before opening a door to go out...it throws the hab door lock out of sequence...so lock doors at night using button on dash.....push it again in morning to unlock everything before stepping out. So far that has cured the hab door lock sequence each time

I have had to put some plastic spacers behind the contact block on the door frame. The constant swinging of the door in the wind has bent the thin hinges and moved the door slightly away from the frame on my Neuvo 2019. Will replace the hinges when I can find similar. Locks OK now the contacts meet up. Hope this helps?

hab door wont lock  remotely Empty Habitation Remote door not locking

Post by Craney Tue Sep 06, 2022 4:06 pm

up! My 1 year Broadway habitation door remote locking stopped working. Step working checked for 12 volt pulse for door solenoid working correctly and then solenoid resistance about 2 ohms so all looked good. Closer inspection revealed that the fixed and door contacts were not aligning. The simple reason was that the door hinges had slipped allowing the door to drop. Re-adjustment of the hinges and all working correctly.

I have personally witnessed many people locked out of their Ford or Mercedes because the doors have autolocked. When on site we always manually lock/unlock the habitation door but also have a hidden key in case we get distracted. At least its one potential problem that you don't have to worry about.

On newer Mercedes's registered after 1/10/2012 the MobiloVan cover will pay for the costs involved after keys have been locked in the van. A friend was reimbursed by MB after the dealer did charge her for the work.
