    Question about Auto-locking feature - Looking to delay

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    So briefly - Used my Carista to make it so that the car will auto-unlock upon touching door handle...and lock as soon as I close the door outside of the car. (thereby never needing to take fob out of pocket)

    My issue is, if I need to open a passenger door or trunk, its kind of annoying because as soon as I close the door...the car locks...so I need to be jack-rabbit quick to open the other door or trunk before the primary door closes (make sense?) or leave the driver front/passenger front door open while I open the others.

    In short, what I am hoping for is to add a 2-3 second delay in the locking action. This will give me enough time to go open another door or trunk before the car sees all doors closed and lock itself.

    Anyone know how to do that? I can get a vagcom or OBD11 and do it that way...IF there is a way.

    I just leave the driver door open. Not aware of a timer option.

    You don't have that small square button on the handle?



    If you touch that button it locks all the doors.

    The car is already designed for this. When exiting the vehicle use your thumb to press the square indent on the handle and the vehicle will lock. When approaching the vehicle, place your hand on the inside of the handle and it will unlock itself.

    With the Carista mod the door locks by itself when you close the door, without you touching the handle. He's trying to set a delay in how long the auto lock waits before it locks.

    Apparently, there's an "Auto" lock feature that does away with pressing that square indent on the handle.

    Didn't realized the car will auto lock right away (as soon as the door is closed). I would have guessed that this feature will lock after you have walked away a few feet (after it can no longer detect the key).

    Yep - you can delay it - need long coding ability though. I use a "different" obd device for this myself.

    It's nice having that delay when you need to grab shit out of the car after exiting the cockpit - like kids and stuff lol.

    Question about Auto-locking feature - Looking to delay

    I donít believe this is the case as Iíve walked away from my car and come back later to find the car is unlocked. Itís usually parked in the garage though so Iíll turn the car off, get out, close the garage door and go inside. Iíd return the next morning and the car is still unlocked without key in hand.
