    lol Yea, unless you have the electrics on. It will auto lock itself, incase you forget to lock it. Can be an arse hole when your washing your car and leave it in the ignition, but off.....

    Just be dead certain your keys are on you lol! :)

    Also if you unlock your car and only open the boot, but not the doors, the car will lock itself after about 1 minute, so be carefull you don't drop your keys in the boot!

    I think there may be a fault if the car is locking itself after taking the key out of the ignition.......
    On cars with flip-key remotes there is a built-in security feature that if you remotely unlock the car but dont actually open a door within about 1 minute the car will automatically re-lock itself.
