How many others have an issue with the "Automatic Unlock Doors On Exit" feature? I know this has been partially discussed in another thread, but I was hoping for a little more visibility. I have the feature turned on in the Uconnect settings, but it simply does not work as intended for me. I can get it to work
if I put the ignition in ACC, manually lock the doors, press start button again (turn off ACC), and open a door. If I start the car, manually lock the doors, stop the car, and open a door, it will not
unlock all doors. It's kind of a first-world problem I suppose, but I think it used to work the first day or so I had the car and now it just annoys me. I've tried resetting things in Uconnect, unhooking the battery for a few hours, etc, and nothing has made it work again after the engine has run.
I will likely take it in to the dealer, but this doesn't seem like a quick/straightforward fix and I'd like to hear other experiences (or that it's user error
) before taking it in. Thanks!
