Asked by Nov 26, 2014 at 11:41 AM about the 2015 Mazda CX-5 Touring AWD

Question type: General

I have the advanced keyless feature, push to start button. I have tried starting my car
allowing it to warm up, take the keyfab out of the car and the vehicle is still running which
is fine. However, the doors will not lock and someone is able to hop in and drive off. How
do I lock the doors while the car is running?

It's a safety feature, but you can try this. I found this procedure online, let us know if it works...."Once the car is started, step out the car and close the door. Put the key from the fob into the door lock and turn left and it should locks all the doors. To open the door again use the key in the lock. The fob will not open the doors with the engine running, only the key."
