Doors lock by themselves

About a minute after unlocking vehicle with remote key fob but not opening any doors my 2018 Compass doors lock by themselves.

Is this some sort of security feature or is something malfunctioning?

That is how it is supposed to work. If you send the unlock command from the fob but don't actually come and open any door after a minute it assumes it was an accident/mistake from bumping the button in a pocket or purse and so it re-locks the doors. This behavior is described in the user manual.

I didnt see it anywhere on the manual.

I had the car in for service and they didn’t know it was supposed to act like this either.

They actually replaced the key fobs and the radio relay module

Thanks for the info.

Well, on page 35 it says if the vehicle is unlocked via the passive entry but no door is actually opened then it will re-lock in 60 seconds. I can't find anything that says the same for the unlock button on the fob but it appears to be a continuation of that same feature. A couple of Honda's I have had (2011 and 2016 models) functioned the same way.
