Exclamation My Car Locks Me Out.

So now that winter is approaching something that typically doesn't bother me till I wish to warm up my car, my car loves to lock me out. I mean like If I get out of my car when it's in park, keys in the ignition even making sure to unlock all the doors before I get out when I go to open the door again all the doors lock up immediately leaving me locked out. I'm not sure if it's a safety feature? but I've never had a car that I couldn't start up and walk away without having to leave the window open or a door open so I can get back in. It's a 02 dream cruiser if that matters, please help it's cold out.

Yea my car locks after driving a certain speed, thats not a problem. I mean if my car is running in park and I get out of the car make sure to unlock the doors then shut the door and then try to get back in it locks me out the minute I touch the handle.

This is an odd thing to ask but have you owned this car since new?

Reason being is I would be curious as to if someone once installed a remote start or remote access in the car. When I worked at a car electronics place we had a few people who had bought cars without the remote start fobs and occassionally the bypass or something would be messed up and would engage the locks and lock folks out.

The worst is if someone bought a walmart remote start system and tried to do it themselves... It could mean wires are crossed or something.

Also does anyone know if those odd buy here pay here boxes could also remote lock a car?

I know for a fact the new Corvettes with the electronics means you never have to touch any lock or starter.

Walk towards the car with the key in your pocket, the doors unlock and you can push a button to start the engine. Get out and walk away from the car and the doors lock.

You have the exact opposite problem.

lol* this was my first thought as well.
It's really weird that it locks you out all the time. Have you already asked a motor mechanic? It would be interesting to have a professional opinion here. Maybe it's a special feature which was build in for the previous owner? Or it's a mistake for your specific car in the electronics.

yup sounds like an alarm system of some kind. I had to get used to keeping keys in my pocket when I was contracting toyota detailing. all the new mid to upper models have that stupid feature. first day I did that and tried forever with a slim jim to no avail. they had to go find the spares to unlock it.

I only have one fob with my car so I keep just my car and motorcycle key on one keychain and my spare keys, house keys and fob on another. then I can lock it while it's running
