door unlock when stopping car
IN the few..or several months after buying the car, I was happy that all doors and rear gate would unlock when I quit car. THen, that stopped: only driver door would unlock when I quit car. I thought I had joined the club that complains about door lock/unlock. But no!
Obviously, after I had the car for some time, I developped (uncounciously, I just noticed recently) the habit of turning the key (real metallic key) OFF BEFORE pushing transmission to park. It seems I did the opposite in the early days/months...
SO...recently, I have FINALLY noticed for real that I have to keep engine running, push to PARK, (all doors unlock) and then turn key OFF. I noticed also that I have to THINK of it, otherwise I would turn key off before park....then only my door unlocks...when I open it....
Bought in Oct 2016 at 55000km, now (June 2019) at 75000 km. I like cars...
