D@mn door locks.....

I thought I was going crazy.....

Car is in the garage..windows rolled up...key is in the car (since it's in the garage which is always locked) and I come back to it in the morning and

My doors are locked??

Weird...I think maybe I hit the door lock by mistake when getting out. I get the other remote and unlock it.

Several more times this happened. And...I finally figure it's not me. For some reason or another, my car decides to lock itself. I've had to call OnStar twice now to unlock my car because it locks itself. While I'm a paranoid guy who locks his car all the time, it sure doesn't help having to go and get the other key fob out of the safe to unlock my car in the mornings.

Anyone else have an issue with the doors locking themselves out of the blue?

there is an option in the settings to prevent that, something to do that when set only the fob will lock the doors..

Owner's manual explains all the locking options.

Gotta say, though, leaving keys in the car is never a good idea, even at home.

I just read my owners manual and there is no option to prevent that, just to delay locking. If you have a manual transmission and leave the key in the ignition it will lock after you close the door. Only solution is remove the key from the ignition and drop it in the cup holder.

I leave my key in the car all the time in the garage and it has never locked on me.

Since we're talking 2010 here I think there is an option to set a delayed lock time. Might run through the settings on your radio.

Please don't read the manual...

If you are going to leave the keys in it, leave a window open!

2010 manual says the same thing as my 2012. In an automatic it will remain unlocked if the car is in park, no matter if the key is in it or not, on the manual it says you need to remove the key from the ignition.

Hi,
This happened to me back in Sept '13. I turned my car on and closed the door while the engine was running. Went inside the house to get something, when I came back, the doors were locked. Both windows were up (since it was the first time turning the car 'ON' that day). It was a first for me. I've always turned ON my car and would let it warm up while I would go back inside the house (for what ever reason). This was the first time it did it and I still don't know why. I now roll down the window before I close the driver side door (and if I have to go back inside the house). I don't know....

Never heard of doors locking on any car just by having the keys in the ignition. No reason for it and the system isn't active until you turn the key.

I leave a window rolled down now which stinks since it's kind of cold out....lol...28 or so degrees. SO...when I get in the car, it's colder than normal. But, yeah...I have the car off, leave the key in the center console (again, garage is locked...and if someone wants to steal the car, it's not like they couldn't get the keys in the house where they normally hang), and with the car off, it'll lock out of the blue. I am pretty sure no one is hitting the door lock down with the window down...since it's happened with the windows in the up position.

personally I have never heard of an OEM alarm having passive arming (i.e. locking doors and arming the alarm by itself after a given preset time) most if not all aftermarket alarms do it, but as far as OEM delayed locking is all I have ever seen OEM wise, and delayed locking requires you to tap the lock button, it is not passive, if you don't touch the button it won't activate the lock.

though I have never tested to see if my vehicle locks itself, it is a given for me, I open the door I tap the lock button and hear the 3 chimes indicating delayed lock is active.

I always wait for the horn toot before walking away.. but I seldom ever use my key fob to lock the doors, 99% of the time it is delayed locking, simply because I usually have my hands full (laptop, lunch bag, etc) and it is easier than fumbling for the fob after I retrieve everything from the trunk.

Turn the delayed lock off. Otherwise, the doors will lock automatically after you shut them.

only if you touch the lock button..

they don't lock by themselves, you have to press the lock button on the dash or door.

Do you have 2014? the new onstar/camaro app you can lock an unlock your car from anywhere right from your phone so you could always do that vs calling onstar..dont think that is a feature on the older ones

only works if you have an active onstar account, and it's 2012 vehicles and newer, and some select 2010 and 2011 models.

Well...they locked themselves again the other night. Glad I kept the window rolled down. Just fyi, I've never changed the lock settings on the car and never knew I could. There is no set up on the car right now where it'll lock itself after a period of time. It should stay unlocked unless I unlock it. But for some reason or another, ... "click." Annoying if anything at all. I just have to leave the window down now or keep the key out of the car.

If your keys are hanging in the house as you mentioned, perhaps someone is having some fun with you. ��
