Just been reading through this thread as a recent joiner, and there's some interesting stuff in here :) I've just put the PSideP option on the screen, which works well for me. It's also got an easy-to-read power meter with actual figures on it, which is interesting.

Hello all, I have two questions:

First, how do I lock the car even though the tail gate is open?
This would be useful for me when I have the dog in the boot on a sunny day. Either I leave it a bit open with a specialized hook or I'll have installed lockable, metal gates).
Doesn't seem to be any info about this in the manual so I am very thankful for any info.

Second, why doesn't my car have LDW even though it is a 2014 Business? In the manual it says that it should have it but the intended button is just blanked... I am pretty sure that when we test drove another Outlander (that I believe also was 2nd gen) it had LDW.
It is all so very strange to me...

Just make the car believe it would be closed.
I expect that the car is realizing when the lock is closed. This can be done with a screwdriver or any other simple tool.

For avoiding overheating, a large opening would be needed.

AFAIK all 2014 cars were 1st gen.

Give me your address and I'll send you mine :idea:

First thing I do whenever I get into the car is turn it off.

I've just found out that we both might be incorrect here: apparently 1st gen was 2001-08 (also known as "Airtrek" in some parts of the world), 2nd gen was 2006-12 and 3rd gen is from 2013 onwards. This makes my car a 3rd gen, not 1st nor 2nd. Interesting. I think I confused the latest facelift with a new gen.

Still doesn't explain why LDW is described in the manual but is not featured in the car. Same thing with adaptive cruise control.
How many versions of the 1st gen are there: Comfort, Business and...? Might I have been test driving some other version than the Business I now own?

1st, 2nd and 3rd. Several facelifts for each of them.

Tried this yesterday with mine - it works.
When you install some structure for keeping the tail gate sufficiently open, you might even fix this structure in the original lock.
