Does anyone else have the problem that the windows open when you lock the car or is this just fault?
Due to the autolock function It is possible in certain circumstances to leave the key locked in the car ( if it is not in the ignition).Recently I wound down my windows when sitting in the car to save having to turn the ignition on. All was well for a few minutes then all the doors without warning suddenly locked with me locked inside.
It seems it is a security function. Yes wind your windows down but the car will then self lock. The alarm then goes off if anyone puts their hand through the open window.
I wish the windows would continue working with the engine off after parking and opening a door. Opening a door immediately switches off the window controls in the car. Ideally I would like to be able to choose how long the windows work after switching off the engine / removing the key.
That's good to know always double checking making sure Ive got my keys before locking the carYou can't lock the Keys inside the car on the EX-GT, or at least not by accident. I even tried to lock my spare set of keys inside while i had the main set outside and it wouldn't do it haha
Yes, it's only 45 seconds. Silly idea.The relock function should only happen if the cars were previously locked and then you unlock the car (which you must do to open the windows with the fob). If you don't open a door within 30s, like most other cars I've owned the civic will relock itself.
With smart entry it's almost impossible to lock the key in the car. You have to have the second key outside and press the lock button several times and listen to it beep at you!!
The window up when locking is only on cars where all 4 windows have auto (anti-pinch) to stop it trapping your red setter's big daft head in the mechanism!
The windows continue to work for 10 mins after switching off the engine and removing the key (in Europe). I think it's shorter in Australia
