Question about locking fob in GC

Today I locked my fob in my '14 SRT. It was in the cupholder in the center console. I got out and locked the doors using the door lock button (the one in the area of the window controls). When I returned to the car, I realized what I had done. Previously, I had an '11 Overland, and when I did the same thing, the car honked three times and unlocked the doors. Did something change between models, or do I have an anomoly?

Might be an anomaly. I've accidently left my fob in my 2014 and when I've gone to lock it beeps at me 3 times.

Re: Question about locking fob in GC

Probably just didn't sense the key. It happens. I've gotten into my WK2 to take off and it told me the fob was not detected while it was in my pocket.

Re: Question about locking fob in GC

Was it near your cell phone? Mine gets finicky around my phone. Same thing with the fob on my Ducati, it won't detect the key if it's in the same pocket as my phone.

Re: Question about locking fob in GC

I put my spare keys in the suitcase in my GC and when I tried to lock it the GC gave me a warning. After a couple of tries it finally locked.

Re: Question about locking fob in GC

I haven't experienced the OP's particular problem (thankfully), but I've experienced enough weirdnesses to be wary of the system. Like it's poltergeist or gremlins or something.

I'll post separately instead of derailing this thread.
