    Ok, I guess our car is slightly different. So why do you have to get to the driver's door to get it to locked in your case? You do whatever you have to at the trunk or rear door. Then you step away. No key in sight, and the car does what? Nothing? Should be locked as soon as you close either door.

    Sorry for the confusion.. I don't get to the door to lock it. I was merely mentioning I place something in the boot, shut it (I watch it to make sure it closes properly - still getting used to power operated tailgate), then go to enter my vehicle to drive off and whilst I am moving to the door, it will arm itself. I open the door, get in and the car has not locked. If I however shut the tailgate, watch it close, it self arms and then I walk away, the CX-5 will auto lock.

    Besides if worse comes to worse, there are 3 buttons on the CX-5 to lock it if needed.

    As mentioned, the key is needed as it is sending commands to the relevant module. If no key, then no command. Besides if you don't have the key, chances are the CX-5 won't start or if it does, won't go that far as the key is needed.

    If you drive away without the key, nothing stops you. You can drive until the tank runs dry. But when you shut it off.....

    I thought it actually will "konk out" because it can't find the key....

    Nope. Very few (none that I know of) "keyless cars" do that. My Volvo is the same but it doesn't stop beeping at you. That might be annoying enough to make a thief abandon the Volvo. LOL

    I still don't get a point of the key being required to LOCK. Forget unlocking or driving off with no key.
    Close your trunk/boot. Do whatever else you need. But if there is no key around, and all doors are closed, the car must be shut.

    I don't know. Maybe because I don't want my car locked 100% of the time. Camping in the woods, no one around, I don't need it locked. I don't need my family asking me for the key every time they need something. Some times you just don't want your car locked.
    Btw, CRV works exactly the same.

    Nice feature, just somewhat flawed design.

    Well then, you keep your car unlocked. Many ways to do it. But the feature's name is auto-LOCK.

    For some people it's a flawed design, to others it works as intended

    I think we just stumbled on it.
    That's probably EXACTLY why it does need the key. How else WOULD it work? Any time the doors are closed, it locks? So you unlock with the fob from a distance...it then airocks again because the doors are closed? Ok so let's program it to not auto lock when you use the fob....hmmm...that's going to cause more issues, I think. By gum, I think we've got it!

    It's easier then that. After last door is closed with engine off, lock the whole thing. Key or no key on sight. You may give it few seconds. I just don't know what for.

    Some people forget/are lazy to lock the door. Hence the auto-lock feature....
