How does this work? I inadvertently left my key fob in my V, along with my cell phone, and locked the car. My wife was standing next to me (she had a spare key fob in her pocketbook). When I returned from the restaurant, I realized that my key fob was in the car. Luckily, I used my wife's key fob to gain entry.
Question: I was able to lock my car, by depressing the door latch button from the outside of the car while the door was closed. Shouldn't my car NOT allow me to lock my car, from the outside, if my key fob is in the car (in the center console area)? My 2007 Lexus ES 350 will not allow me to lock my car, from the outside, if my key fob is in the car, to prevent me from locking myself out of the car (like, it appears, the V does).
If this locking process works as designed, IMO it's a bad design. In my case, since I had locked both my key fob AND cell phone in the car, as was several hundred miles from home, it would have been a huge disaster if not for me giving my wife a spare key fob for this just-in-case situation.
