    lol Yea, unless you have the electrics on. It will auto lock itself, incase you forget to lock it. Can be an **** 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.
