I don't know if this is fault or not with my SEL but I have noticed that if you leave a passenger door open and use the key fob to lock the car all the other doors will lock, the mirrors will close, leaving the open door unlocked with no warning , if you leave the drivers door open though the button will not work at all so you know one of the doors is still open,
Could someone check there t-roc, and let me know, or is this just a fault with my car !.

Thanks Chriss did you do the same as me and leave a passenger door open then try to lock the car, it looks like it could be a fault with the roc, I've got mine booked in to have a full diagnostic.

Mine does it. I "locked" the car before wife had closed her passenger door. When she slammed her door it locked too, but if she'd left it open without noticing there'd have been no warning and you could have walked off!

The moral of the story is the t-roc should have some sort of warning that any doors are open when locking the car, and not just the drivers door, as in this case, even my polo had it, and would not lock any doors if one was open!,
VW get your act together.

Agreed, my Volvo used to make an "error noise" if you tried to lock the doors with a door open.

My old Astra 60 plate would lock the last door after it was shut even though the other 3 had been locked just before that.

It seems strange that to deadlock the T-roc you only push the button on the fob once. If you press twice the inner handles can still be used to open the car. Astra was the other around, I am a great believer in standardisation, and like common things to work the same way on all cars.

Years ago (1975 to 78) indicators were on the right of the steering wheel with the horn on the stork. The washer / wipers on the left. Then they changed them both over. While driving down a country road in darkest Cumbria a car started to come out of a side lane on my left so I went to give him a toot using the right stalk where the horn was placed on my car, which was the way I had been used to. All I got was water on my windscreen, I found out the hard way about the changeover, it was my bosses car a later model than mine. (Ford Escort mk1 to mk2). Needed a clean pr of underpants that day.
