Remote Entry and unlock Question

I have the passive unlock set up so that when the driver door unlocks all the others stay locked. Ie. Security when getting in the car by oneself.

Now, I tested it. I unlocked the driver door and got in. My wife was able to unlock the front pax door herself without her key fob being on her person and only relying on mine being in the car ( in my pocket).

It seems to defeat the purpose of single door unlock if say an assailant in a car park can suddenly unlock the front passenger door and jump in.

The only way to fix this is to disable passive entry and to use the remote unlock feature via the key fob, it seems.

Or am I missing something here?

Thanks

Re: Remote Entry and unlock Question

From the manual:
"To Unlock From The Passenger Side:
With a valid Passive Entry RKE transmitter within 5 ft
(1.5 m) of the passenger door handle, grab the front
passenger door handle to unlock all four doors automatically.
The interior door panel lock knob will raise when
the door is unlocked.
NOTE: All doors will unlock when the front passenger
door handle is grabbed regardless of the driver’s door
unlock preference setting (“Unlock Driver Door 1st
Press” or “Unlock All Doors 1st Press”)."

Re: Remote Entry and unlock Question

Jacki, thanks for your reply. But the issue is the reverse of what you posted. The left door is able to be unlocked by a person not in possession of a fob after I have unlocked my side (driver's door).

Wish that the gap or distance between door and fob was a lot less. Say 500mm.

Anyway, I'm at work. Showing it off to the workmates. And I unlocked my side, got in. Mate couldn't unlock or open it til I unlocked it manually.

Not sure why. That is, why I'm getting differing results.
