    Question on Keyless Start

    I should be taking delivery of a silver FWD Luxury model on 10/30. I was wondering if I leave the SRX unlocked, can anyone get in and start it, or does the remote need to be in close proximity?

    The fob has to be in the car and your foot depressing the brake pedal for the car to start. (Unless the remote start is utilized, which still requires the fob.)

    It will lock itself in 7 seconds after you shut the doors, if you set that feature.

    Appreciate the answers! One more week before I can test everything myself. At this point, I'd be excited just to read the owner's manual.

    Where? I don't have auto locks after I close the door. I have to use remote.

    Barry--you have to set it up in the config menu.

    I'm wondering if all these little nuances are explained in the owner's manual, or are they sorta like easter eggs.

    They are in the manual. As always, all features are not on all trim levels.

    I did setup what I thought was all the menus in the car.
    I guess I have to look again, maybe I somehow missed it?
    Far as manual, I don't see anywhere that says car locks itself when u close doors.
    I know I have auto locks when shifting in & out of park.

    I learned something new today, I was closing my door mirrors manually.
    I played with the mirror switch only to discover there is power mirrors that close.

    Far as reading manual I glance @ it as I don't have time to read a book.

    Re: Question on Keyless Start

    Ok I see in menu that there is a setting "Delayed Door Lock". Which I did have checked off.
    I see u have to hit lock button on dash every time u get out of car to get it to "auto lock".
    Would be nice if u just get out of car & close doors & locks set itself. Oh well no biggy really!

    Huh?
    Mine locks automatically 7 seconds after the last door closes, I press no buttons. My other half has the SRX this morning, so when it gets back, I'll check what settings I have set.

    This feature depends on which "package" you have. Not all trim levels have the same features.

    Oh well, guess only the loaded "Premium" has this lock feature.
    I have the next package down from "Premium" Performance" and I don't have it?
    Or dealer needs to go into some other settings or some kind of software update maybe?
