thanks to marc I managed to find the way (diagbox 7.83):
follow the instructions marc wrote but after selecting Vehicle Configuration
select BSI PROTECTION - ACCESSES - MECHANICAL ASSISTANCE
select Type of selective unlocking
select Unlocking of driver's door only
back under Type of selective unlocking click the wheels button next to the check mark button to memorize the change

exit the software, turn off ignition key, disconnect cables, turn on car, enter confort menu ---> plip action available!

now with one push of the key fob you open the driver's door only with two all the doors, much better and safer!

Great, glad you have it sorted the way you want it. The menus vary from version to version of Diagbox - but at least you have it working now :-D

one issue has been solved but there is now another one! quite angry at citroen for these unsafe options activated by default:

when you drive the C5 and reach 10kmh it locks all the doors automatically, ok that's excellent and you can also do it by pushing the lock button but...when you stop to get off the car and open the driver's door it unlocks automatically ALL the doors again!! :evil: :evil:

I'm again trying to find the option to disable it but the software and its few explanations are cryptic! Is it possible to disable this unsafe feature from diagbox??

I may be totally wrong but i think the unlocking of all doors is there for a safety reason.
In the event of an accident the opening of any door will unlock all of them to enable people to exit the vehicle or for emergency personnel to gain entry.

Yes, you can only turn off the locking of doors after you move off by holding in the lock button on the dash for a few seconds. Repeating that reactivates the feature, but the doors will unlock when you open the driver door.

You can only choose to unlock the drivers door or all doors with the remote control from the menu accessed from the steering wheel, but that I don't think that prevents the doors opening when the driver door is opened.
