How does it react when you don't use the FOB but use the keyless method of grabbing the handle to unlock and pressing the external button to lock?

If it's immediately unlocking then it's sensing a FOB inside the vehicle or not sensing it externally. Doing the above test will confirm the external sensor is working and point to a problem with one of the internal proximity sensors.
I have noticed that it unlocks if I merely wave the fob very close to the handle. At first I thought this was the way that proximity entry was supposed to work, but then I realized that there was a purpose for the chrome button on the handle. Doors should only lock or unlock when that button is pressed, correct?

Re: Another keyless enter-and-go question

I believe the button only LOCKS the door. Putting your hand by the handle UNLOCKS it.

Re: Another keyless enter-and-go question

I lock mine by shutting the engine off and using the inside lock button if I don't wanna hear the horn beep late or early in the morning.

I tried waving the key fob near the door as someone said & glad to report it did NOT unlock! I must touch the handle.

You can disable the horn with lock in the evic. I'm surprised to hear that some people are using the inside buttons to lock or unlock their vehicle. I never use those buttons. As soon as I shut my vehicle off all the doors unlock and when I get out I just tap the little button on the handle to lock it all up. If the fob didnt have remote start I would never use it. It's a really nice feature that has been flawless for me so far.

The little button on the rear liftgate is the only one that can be used to lock and unlock the vehicle.

It is also key to NOT have your Hand on or around the handle when locking the door as this will just cause it to unlock instantly. I just tap it with my thumb and away I go.

Re: Another keyless enter-and-go question

It's habit with me. All of the vehicles I have owned in the last 20 years have had electric door locks and they did not have a nice little chrome button on the outside handle to lock them, so I'm used to pressing the lock button on the interior of the door as soon as I open the door. I have used my fob to lock the door on occasion and it has always worked correctly the first time. I have also used the chrome button on the outside on occasion and it has worked correctly as well.

A question to jmpdev2020, the poster of the original question. You didn't have your hand on the outside door handle when you pressed the lock button on your fob the first time, did you?

I like the horn beep usually, just sometimes want to be quiet
