Two ways to lock your keys in your car by accident or on purpose.

Two ways to lock your keys in your car by accident or on purpose:
  1. May only pertain to MY 2014 and must have autostart; with the driver door open(or driver door plus other doors open) and the vehicle is in the off position, press autostart button twice then put keys on the front seat and close all doors, DONE! Keys now locked in the car.
  2. Pertains to all vehicles, I think, with key fob or remote. With only the hatchback open press lock button on the key fob / remote leave keys inside (where your groceries just were) and close the hatchback. Done! Keys inside all doors locked.
Both of these, I believe, can be done with the engine on or off. Certainly, the first can.

Also version 14.05.03 of Uconnect has been installed; (latest as of 4/27/2014)

When I discovered the AutoStart issue, I had got in the car with the door open and started the car, I then left the car and closed the door. Minutes later I realized the car was locked and the engine was on.

If the AutoStart function can not be performed because a door is open the doors should not be locked; this is a defect.

I'm a little confused on this part. Where was the fob when you left the car?

1. I tried to start the car with my KeyFob, (pressing auto start button twice), not noticing my Door was open.

2. Got in the car, put my keyFob in the Cup Holder, started car, (foot on brake pedal, pressed the start button twice).

3. left vehicle, closed door.

4. Vehicle now running with key fob locked inside.

Also, note whether you start the car or just put your keys in the cup holder, the door is still locked.

Put simply, you can lock your doors when they are open by pressing the autostart button twice anytime the car is not already running.

Please try this, (preferably with your other key fob somewhere you can get to it), and report back.

I left my keyfob in the cup holder and was able to lock the door, the car was off.

Re: Two ways to lock your keys in your car by accident or on purpose.

I'm ashamed to say that I've personally done #2 myself at Publix a couple years ago with my 2011. Thankfully my house was just a short walk down the road where I had my spare key.

On a related note, I rented a Charger the other week on a business trip and had the spare key fob in my briefcase and every time I went to close the trunk it kept re-opening. Took me a minute to realize that it was because the spare fob was in my briefcase.

Re: Two ways to lock your keys in your car by accident or on purpose.

My wife locked her keys inside by opening the passenger door (upon locked Jeep), setting her purse (with keys inside) on passenger seat, and close door. She had to have hit the exterior door handle button while closing the door. Boom -- keys locked in, and can't get in. Cell phone was also inside purse. She had to use the grocery store landline to call me at work. She never did that again.

Based upon my research, the door shouldn't have locked in this scenario. The external button shouldn't work without the key fob.

Re: Two ways to lock your keys in your car by accident or on purpose.

Glad I have a few months of uconnect assist. Keep their number in your phone book and they can remote open doors for you. Assuming you have a 2014.
