This may sound really, really stupid... Buuut

When I'm locking the doors how do I engage the deadbolts?
Is it just pressing the button again?
As I've been doing that... But it just doesn't.... Sound right?
Or is that me just being dense?

(and I have checked the alarm works...)

Secondary...
When I star the car and press the start buttons, the headlights really really dim...
Is this normal?

If not I may nip back to the dealers and tell them to change the battery!

If your car has deadlocks, then yes, press twice on the lock button.

Everything electric in the car going off when you start is normal.

Regarding the first question, yes I think you just press the lock button a second time to deadlock it.

Can't really answer the second question, I always start the engine before switching on other electrics.

If you are worried about the battery, have it tested.

How old is the car?

Correct, in the manual I think they call it super locking.

No idea on 2nd one.

The lights dimming when starting the engine is normal. The starter motor draws a lot of power.
