Unhappy WANTED: Remote unlock

I had a blonde moment today and locked the keys inside while it was running. I was showing my friend all of the cool new features, I pushed the start button, hopped out and closed the door to walk around back... Then the locks when down automatically!!! Wtf... I thought they only engaged while rolling? I called the jeep road side service and they wanted to charge me $75?! I laughed at them and called AAA, who came right away for free.

I can't believe I did this ... I have not even finished breaking in my new summit!... 8 days old 292 miles. A remote unlock service would be really nice for me

Re: WANTED: Remote unlock

TRUST ME remote unlock does not always work, i was told... the truck was parked too close to the building and onstar could not get a good signal.....add secured area ( no tow trucks/non cleared people)... solution was to drag up the truck away from the building until onstar could get the signal.... yeah I usually roll the window down

Re: WANTED: Remote unlock

That's a first. You sure you didn't hit the lock button when you shut the door? IMHO, the lock button is located in a place where someone could accidentally hit it when exiting the vehicle.

But...if it did lock as you claim, (by itself, not moving and in the parked position) I would call Jeep and report the issue. Let's see if they (at your dealership) can duplicate it. If so, there's a possibility that Jeep will issue a TSB to correct.

Couldn't you just have unlocked it from touching the door handle?

So, as soon as you shut the door, it locks? I thought it was when you reached a certain speed. (gotta go play with it now) Thx

Re: WANTED: Remote unlock

You sure someone at the passengers door or lift gate didn't press the lock button on the handle by mistake?
