    Locked Doors

    My V will lock the doors with the fob sitting on the console. Thought it was supposed to blow the horn three times and keep the doors unlocked to remind you a fob is inside. My wife has been locked out twice this way by leaving her purse in the the car, once with both fobs in her purse. Its going to the dealer but thought I would run it by you guys, it could be something I'm doing and would save me a trip. Nearest decent Caddy dealer is 120 miles away.

    Thanks,

    SugsPa

    No, it shouldn't lock the doors.

    My keys fell out of my pocket getting out of the car once, closed the door and got the three beeps you expected to get.

    I forgot to add that both fobs have new batteries.
    Thanks,

    Re: Locked Doors

    Is it turned off in the "Vehicle Personalization"????

    KEY FOB REMINDER
    This feature chirps the horn three times when the
    driver’s door is closed and there is a keyless access
    transmitter left inside of the vehicle. This will only occur
    when the vehicle is off.
    Programmable Modes
    Mode 1: ON
    Mode 2: OFF
    Before your vehicle was shipped from the factory, it was
    programmed to Mode 1. The mode to which the
    vehicle was programmed may have been changed since
    it left the factory.
    To program the vehicle to a different mode, use the
    following procedure:
    1. Enter the PERSONAL SETTINGS MENU by
    following the instructions listed previously under
    “Entering the Personal Settings Menu.”
    2. Turn the tune/select knob until KEY FOB
    REMINDER is highlighted.
    3. Press the tune/select knob to switch back and forth
    between on and off.
    When the mode is turned on, a check mark will
    appear next to the feature name.
    The mode you selected is now set. You can either exit
    the programming mode by following the instructions
    later in this section or program the next feature available
    on your vehicle.

    ----------

    And EACH fob has it's own personalization . . .

    Re: Locked Doors

    Thanks Berger 93,

    I went through the menu and made sure it was set properly in "Vehicle Personalization" and it is. After I went through the steps, I got out and closed the door to see what it would do. It chirped 3 times then about 5 seconds later it chirped once and then locked the doors.

    Re: Locked Doors

    If you have a fob in the car and another fob on your person it will do that. Try keeping one fob waaaay out of range (range is quite far) and then take the other, leave it in and close the door. If the car senses there is a fob outside the car it'll lock even if there is one inside. I say this assuming you kept one in your pocket so you didn't get locked out.

    Re: Locked Doors

    Guy, Thanks, that's exactly what I did. Good, so maybe when I set it, it worked the way it should. Thanks again. I'm heading to Fayetteville, NC on Tuesday (25th) to visit my son, who is stationed down there. His play toy is a 2013 Shelby GT 500. Won't be driving the V though, I'll be on my HD.

    Thanks Again,

    SugsPa
