From the owners manual:

AUTO RELOCK
Auto relock ensures that, if the vehicle is
unlocked accidentally, the vehicle will relock
itself automatically after a60 second delay.
Once the 'unlock' button on the handset has
been pressed, the alarm system will monitor
the vehicle for 60 seconds. If any ofthe
following occur during this period, the vehicle
will remain unlocked:
• Adoor orthe tailgate is opened.
• Interior movement is detected.
• The key is inserted into the starter switch,
orthe switch isturned to position '1'.
However, if none of the above has occurred
within 60 seconds, then the vehicle will
automatically return to its previous 'locked'
state.
I installed a new battery last night and notice this feature is now active. Is there a way to turn this off? I was don't functioning this way prior to changing the battery. I may have turned it off inadvertently before.

I am wondering if this is related to a battery drain issue. Do you guys normally keep your rover locked at all times?

This only applies if the car is locked and you unlock it with the remote. The idea is that if you accidentally press the remote you won't leave the car unlocked.

It will keep the BeCM 'awake' for 60 seconds. Hard to imagine that causes a noticeable drain.

you gotta keep an eye on that one...it's caught me by surprise a few times so i always leave a window agape if it decides to happen when i've momentarily left my keys on the seat or dash while loading or running into the house. yes, i know it's asinine of me to leave the keys in the car for any period of time knowing it has auto lock but i only do it in the driveway becasue that's a thief's dream come true. i wonder if the becm can tell the keys are in there? doubtful, i don't know if we had that technology in 2002. lots of cars these days know the proximity of the keys and don't even have a key blade. but my 38 can crush alot of those cars so its cool... :dance:

I don't believe there is a way to turn this function off. It may be thaat you just never noticed it before.

Like stated already, it must have been something I only noticed when resynchronizing the key. Because the next day it 'stopped' working.
