    This happened to me on my new 2006 TFSI A4. Never happened on my old Avant but its only done it once. I think its just due to the auto lock time if your doing a full fill. like when you walk away without locking it, it will eventually lock automatically after a short while

    Passive locking is a pita, but can be disabled via coding with VCDS.
