    Left Doors Unlocked

    Yesterday I came home, unloaded the groceries and went into the house. Had the "key" in my pocket. This morning I went out and the mirrors were sticking out and the doors were unlocked. How'd that happen? I certainly don't want a repeat when I'm in the city.

    Did you lock the doors before you went in the house? Maybe the unlock button got pressed in your pocket. Maybe your neighbors have hacking software. Could be any number of possibilities. Not sure how to prove/disprove any of them.

    Happens to me every once in awhile. You have it set to auto lock? If you walk away too fast, it may not lock. There's another thread discussing this at length.

    That said, I always listen for the second beep, so it may be that it occasionally performs outside of it's intended parameters, aka fails, like so many of our electronic aids.

    If I don't press the lock button, my doors don't lock either

    I experience the same occasionally. Autolock with "walkaway mode". If I walk away too fast sometimes it doesn't autolock. As pointed out, listen for the second beep.

    On my Sport, pressing the lock button on the keyfob 3x sounds the horn very briefly so you know the vehicle is locked. I don't know if the antenna key versions are the same.

    Thanks very much, I guess I walked away too fast.

    I haven't quite figured it out but when any door besides the driver's is opened, there's some situations where the doors don't automatically lock. I think they have always automatically locked when only the driver's door gets opened.

    If you close the tailgate AFTER you close the car doors then the car will NOT lock.
    Open and close a door after you have unloaded the groceries.
    If you close the door with the key "out of range" it will NOT lock. This can be as little as a metre or a yard.
    The car should "beep" when the door is closed and the key is in range and "beep again" when the key moves away.
    Ours is a UK model but I do not see that yours can be different.

    Oh, thank you for the details! A passenger closing their door after I'm (and the key in my pocket) out of range is probably the scenario I've encountered but I just didn't know exactly why.

    I have mine set on Auto Lock.

    It seems that the Auto Lock either does not work or is disabled (or there's some weird sequence of events) if I open the hatch to get my groceries out. When I close the driver's door when the hatch is open and then close the hatch, it's as though Auto Lock does not work.

    So it seems. I have not tested this.

    A few days ago I had my first instance of walking up to my car after shopping and realizing I had left the thing running. I've almost done this once before. Damned keyless stuff...

    You are correct. Doesn't make sense to me, but seems to be by design.

    I got used to pressing the lock button on the door as I exit, since it is hard to hear the car lock when pressing the fob and I rather not hear the horn beep by pressing the fob button again.

    I wonder if the problem is that I walk away as the hatch is closing, and I'm out of range when it locks.

    I'll try staying there as the hatch closes and see if that makes a difference. I can't pick through the 26 mind-numbing pages of the manual on keys/doors/locks tonight to see if this is addressed. It makes my eyes glaze over. SO many options on functionality & behaviour & #beeps.

    I have the Walk Away feature turned on.

    When I close the driver's door and have the fob on me (outside of the car), I get an initial Beep. When I walk away, it Beeps a couple of times to let me know that it locked. I believe the lights flash as well when it locks...I think.
