    Default Automatic locking?

    I have been reading on another website that the C has automatic locking,
    although it depends when it was built. Needs to be 04 onwards IIRC and then does not always work.



    Apparently it automatically locks all doors when reaching 5-10 mph and then unlocks when removing the key from the ignition.
    This has to be initiated by pressing and holding down the lock button inside the car and the lock on the key fob at the same time. You then here a beep or two to say it has worked.


    Is this true?



    *slopes off to try it*

    Got this set up on mine as well, but it doesn't always unlock when I switch the ignition off. I think it depends on hopw quick you stop and switch off. I find that if I let the car idl;e for a couple of seconds then switch off, it unlocks itself, but if I stop quickly and switch off almost before I've got the handbrake on, it remains locked (I wonder if the car thinks that it has stalled in that case). Anyway, just an observation.

    Can the auto locking AND the one press unlock be activated at the same time?

    I believe so. Look at the link in my post above - it gives instructions for both.

    Yes I tried it and they both work together. One thing, though; the auto lock feature is enabled after 2 beeps. 1 beep is off.
