Self Locking

I've noticed that if I unlock the car and don't get it it will lock again. But what happens if I unlock the car open the boot and then close it, does the car self lock or just stay unlocked?

(There is a reason for this, I've lost my keys but cant remember when, but the car was locked so if it fails to self lock after opening the boot it mean I must of had the keys to lock the car which will help my put a time on the loss)

The car remains unlocked if you open the boot. It doesn't automatically lock after you close it.

Thank you, I was 99% sure it did else you could lock your keys in quite easily.

That means I had my keys to lock the car.....if only I knew what I did next!

Unless the boot switch isn't working, in which case the system wouldn't know it had been opened and would lock again. Unlikely I know, but possible.
