Auto-locking key feature

1873 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  awd330

I had my dealer program my wife's key to auto-lock after 5 mph. But told them not to do it with my key. After that when I used my key it would auto-lock. So my wife took it back to the dealer and they said it is programmed not to but they reprogrammed it again not to. Now it still auto-locks but occasionally it does not??? Everywhere I read, including the manual, states that it is a feature per key not vehicle.

Does this feature work ok for other people? Do you have 1 key with and without?

Do you think there is something wrong with the computer of our car? Or is my dealer retarded?

Sounds like your dealer can't program your car. ;)

Have you tried a diff. dealership? FWIW, I don't have this feature enabled so I can't attest to any problems thus far.
I told my dealer I wanted this, but neither key has it, I will take it in saturday and get them both done....
When I took delivery in December, I asked for the auto-locking feature on both keys. At that time, my dealer told me that the software to program this feature had not yet arrived for the MY2002 cars. I checked back with the service dept every couple weeks and they finally got the software update installed in February. Auto-lock has been working perfectly for me since then.
