Does anyone else have the problem that the windows open when you lock the car or is this just fault?

There is a keyfob sequence that causes this on the 9G. Have a look in the manual as I forget what it is.

Happened to me once and I was able to reverse it and use the keyfob to close all the windows when they opened.

Only if you press the unlock button release it and press and hold the unlock button! Your windows will never open by pressing the lock button (repeating this process with the lock button will close your windows and fold your mirrors). Just be careful and make sure you press the correct button otherwise you will be leaving your car unlocked. It happened to me once and I only noticed because I didn't hear the sound of the mirror fold motors.

To clarify:

Double click open button keeping button down = windows open as long as you keep holding the button

Double click close button keeping button down = windows closing as long as you keep holding the button + folding mirrors close

So you can open all the windows by just a small amount if you wish with the key if you have a dog or something in the car.

I always lock with two clicks and hold to be sure everything is closed.

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.

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).

On base model 9G (the one without autofold mirrors), the keyfob is only able to open but not close the windows remotely.

You 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

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

Yes, it's only 45 seconds. Silly idea.
