The owner's manual for your Discovery clearly states that this is a design feature to keep you from locking the keys in the vehicle. The doors must be locked with either the remote keyless entry transmitter, or with the key itself.

I had a 1991 Nissan Maxima with the same problem.It turned out to be the design of this vehicle so that the keys would not be accidently locked in.Lock the door then hold the door handle or button as if to open the door then close and see if this works.If this doesnt work then try to isolate the problem to certain doors.See if this happens when you close the back doors as well as the front(driver/passenger?).If you can isolate it to a certain door and the door handle technique does not work then it may be a loose wire or a malfunction on the auto lock system.

Land rover discovery central locking.


No, likely to be caused by the actuators in the lock mechanism failing usually causing the door to remain locked. The boor door can also fail this way, as do the front side doors. Replacement requires the whole lock unit to be replaced at a cost of roughly £60 a lock, and a hours work. Helps if you have small hands. Requires a full strip down of the door and you will need the lock unit, trim clips (a few quid) and a trim removal tool (tenner). You can bodge with a flat head screwdriver, but the tool does help prevent damage to the clips & trim panel.

It may be set in the main menu to lock only by the fob. I know on GMC's there are about 7 different locking options. I'm not a specialist in Land Rovers but the cheapest way out is to check all your options on the dash/steering wheel buttons.
