Durametric - Alarm Error 60

Recommended Posts

In the near past I had multiple issues with my alarm. Now, finally I'm down to the last one:


Error 60:


This is an error with multiple solutions, so I run some test with my durametric and I found out the following:


Door Lock Test: I hear from both doors sounds

Door Secure test: I hear a small click (seems electronic) from my drivers door but not from the passenger door.


I'd like to mention that my central locking switch never worked so far. It has no light at all. In both my doors the window goes up and down when you open the door. Finally, when you try the 3 clicks manual locking, my door locks and the alarm is working but the passenger door doesn't lock.


Any ideas? Is it the switch or the latch? Or maybe something else?

Fault code 60 - Central locking limit position 'Locked' not reached


Possible cause of fault

- Central locking switch faulty

- Short circuit to ground/open circuit in wiring between the alarm system control module, central locking switch or door locks

- Driver's/passenger's door lock faulty

- Control module faulty


It sounds like the mechanical lock is not actually locking - just making noise.

This fault happens when the lock latch mechanism breaks - unfortunately fairly common.


Try the Central Locking dash switch - if still fails then it is likely the mechanical latch in the door.

Loren hi again. After I tried 2 different switches it's obvious that this wasn't the problem. I guess I have to order the mechanism but I'm unable to find which one on pelican parts. Any idea what the OEM part code is? To add on this, I watch a video on you tube from a guy that had a same issue but on his case the switch on the dashboard was having a light when mine doesn't. Is that normal?

Is the fault 60 the only alarm fault you get?

Do you get two beeps when locking (or unlocking)?

Any chance water has gotten into the car at sometime gotten the alarm control module wet? (it is under the driver's seat on LHD USA/Canada cars)

I was getting around 12 errors but now I'm down only to 60. I removed the control module 2 months ago and nothing strange was found on it.

Loren hi again. So, I replace the lock mechanism and the latch and nothing changed. I still have the same issue. Any idea what else can I look for?

I found this one  996-613-123-00 . I noticed that this is the one that moves the window up and down though, and I don't have any problem with the window.
