    Hi Guys,

    Last year I had a fault with the phone-system computer which ended up being replaced. Since the garage replaced this and reset all the MMI computer parts I have noticed that the car no longer automatically locks itself when left unattended for a period of time.

    I have had a quick read through the manual to see if there is a setting to enable/disable this feature but have had no joy. Do you guys know if this is something I would be able to change, or would an Audi tech need to plug their laptop into it to change the setting?

    Thanks in advance,

    Alec

    The car does not auto-lock unless you have unlocked it with the remote and have not opened a door within 30 seconds. Then it re-locks.
