The Mistakes That Owners Make With Their Auto-lock Cars
Gone are those days when cars had keys and you had to unlock every door manually. Then came power locks and you only had to unlock one door and all the rest opened automatically. Now,, key less entry is standard across the model range and the auto locking feature is very common is most cars. Most models today have key less entry and push option, you only need to have the key in your pocket and the car automatically opens all the doors and lets you start the engine by pushing the button, not having to physically insert the the key. They are very convenient and advanced but also cause many problems.
DOORS NOT CLOSE PROPERLY
Some new premium models do have an auto-closing feature that automatically closes the doors but, not all models have that. The problem occurs when doors are not closed properly and you left your car parked. The auto lock feature will engage but it will not lock the door. Not only will you door be left unlocked and some one could enter your car, it will also leave your interior light on and you could experience a dead battery by the time you get back to your car. Therefore do check all doors including your boot is closed properly before you let auto lock do its thing.
LOCKING PEOPLE IN CAR
Always leave your keys in you car if you have people in the car even if you have to step out just for a while. So that you will not lock your people or children inside and leave them locked in till you return. Do remember that once you are a couple of meters away from the vehicle it will automatically lock all the doors.
LOCKED KEYS IN CAR

We do not recommend you try and force or breaking the windows because it will trigger the alarm and you will look like you are trying to steal the car.
