Its happened to me a few times, most recently this past weekend. I walked away from the vehicle while my wife had one of the rear doors open (both front doors were closed). When she closed the rear door, the RL beeped as you described. I haven't looked into it but I am sure someone here has the answer.I have my BE programmed to lock all doors when I walk away. Today when I ran a bunch of errands, I got a beep,beep,beep when I walked away and no door locking unless i used my remote. anyone know why? all doors and windows were closed.
While I don't have a BE or -E, my -T only beeps at me when the truck is still on and I walk away from it. Was it possibly in accessory mode when you walked away from it?I have my BE programmed to lock all doors when I walk away. Today when I ran a bunch of errands, I got a beep,beep,beep when I walked away and no door locking unless i used my remote. anyone know why? all doors and windows were closed.
Mine does this occasionally too. Also sometimes I get al long series of beeps under this condition. I know to watch out for the problem now though. I always push remote lock in this situation.I bought the RTL-E last week and programmed the walk away lock also. I've noticed inconsistencies with the locking. Last night I came home from the grocery store and had to open the back door to remove groceries. I left the back door open for a while (5 min); with all the groceries out I closed the back door and walked away. It did not auto lock. I'll be double checking it from now on.
The 2 sec beeping noise as explain in the manual is to alert you that the auto lock is NOT active ( because you'd closed the door(s) but still within the vicinity with the FOB. )Mine did it again this morning. I usually drive by myself and I have noticed at least 5 times where I walk away from the truck with the only key and it beeps at me as if something is wrong but I go back, open and close the door and it automatically locks when I walk away again. I think it has something to do with the interference of having the key in a pocket and the signal not making its way back to the truck.
People just don't tend to read the manual these days ! :|:surprise:Same issues too. After having kids go and climb in (my kids) after I walked away, I'm paranoid and I hit the buttons anyway when I walk away. Might as well not have it. And the beep codes? Is there something in the manual about them?
The "captain" always leave last ! >I do - I read it before it was released I don't have a lot of time on the forum nowadays (or even in my truck). I must have breezed right past that or thought I'd get more of technological beep code listing. Thanks for the heads up - I probably wouldn't have seen it if you hadn't mentioned it.
Kind of an annoying feature really. If I walk away from my vehicle first and a passenger leaves late (kids), I always get this beep code no matter how far I am.
Interesting! When using my iPhone to provide a "hotspot" to link my iMac to the internet my wireless mouse was intermittently disappearing. I was ready to purchase a wired mouse until I read a post saying a smartphone in close proximity to a wireless mouse will interfere with the signal. Since moving my iPhone to the opposite side of the iMac from the location of the wireless mouse I've had no more problems.Same for me on my RTL. I do carry my work cell phone at times in the same pocket as the fob so I'll have to see if that's causing it as others have mentioned. I also now know to hit the lock button when this happens.
