I suppose I am too lazy to walk outside in the 20-degree cold
to see if this exists in the CUE settings....

Is there a way, with keyfob in your pocket, that SRX doors will
automatically unlock or lock as you approach the vehicle without
having to touch the door handle?

It only takes a spit second for the door to unlock once you have touched the button on the door handle. Either your drivers door or all your doors will unlock, depending on which mode you have selected in your door-lock and unlock setup menu. The only way to unlock your door(s) sooner is to manually use your Key-Fob.

On exit I have my SRX set so that all my doors will automatically lock and cherp after approx. 10 seconds.

Hi Marc!

Thanks for the reply.

I should set up my SRX so it does exactly what you describe.

My only fear (and perhaps you can clarify)....

Accidentally locking my key fob in the vehicle. Have had that happen several times in my 2010 SRX with auto-lock settings. Luckily OnStar got me back in. I would love to set my vehicle to automatically lock and chirp when I walk away, but I want to be absolutely certain that it won't do that if I accidentally leave my key fob in the vehicle.

I didn't think the doors would auto lock if the remote was left in the vehicle. Alternatively, you could use the OnStar remote app on your smartphone to unlock to the doors instead of the using the fob.

I take it that app only works as long as you remain an OnStar subscriber?

If you leave your keys in the SRX it will send out a series of quick rapid "cherps" to let you know that your keys were left inside the SRX.
