Yes exactly that...the key needs to be near the door you are trying to unlock.....makes sense really..you could be standing by your door talking to someone having locked the car and if someone came upto the passenger side and tried to unlock the door and snatch your bag off the passenger seat they would not be able to....not that I would ever approve of leaving bags on passenger seats!Did any of you experienced issues with the passenger trying to unlock the car via the handle button, while you are near the driver door with the key in your pocket ?
My Ioniq seems to only allow the passenger to unlock his door, if I'm near him with the key.
So the car won't auto lock if you get out and walk off with the key in your pocket?nope, the car senses the key when you are a couple of feet from the door, my car unfolds its mirror when it senses the key, then press the little square black button on either of the two front doors, to lock it get out close the doors and press the little button the car locks and the mirrors fold in
you can also use the buttons on the keyfob, the other one is boot, if you are near the bootwith the key in your pocket / with you, you can open the boot it don't unlock the rest of the car and the boot relocks when you close it
hope that helps
No I am sure it doesnt. If you just open the boot it doesnt unlock the doors and when you shut the boot it locks again but I dont think you can just get out and walk away and it locks.So the car won't auto lock if you get out and walk off with the key in your pocket?
Ok , good to know. Wouldn't be hard for them to implement though would it?
