    Auto locking??

    I know that there is a locking function in the car but it seems to do that at random. Sometimes it locked itself up if i didn't lock the car within 5 min, and sometimes it does not do that. What is that? Anyone knows?

    Re: Auto locking??

    Hmm, Mine locks automatically as I start to drive. I have the sports chrono and I believe it is an option. Not sure why yours locks sometime and not others. Sounds like a trip to the local Porsche shop.

    If you have sports chrono. Press the set button on the right side of the PCM screen and select the Personalization menu. The locking options are there. If you dont have sports chrono the dealer needs to set it.

    Re: Auto locking??

    You must have sport chrono. Dooor locking occurs when you exceed a certain speed. It doesnt at very low speeeds.

    Re: Auto locking??

    I think there are two different functions that are mixed up here:

    a) Auto-locking/-unlocking when driving off and coming to a stop. This one can be turned on/off through PCM if you have the Sport Chrono (or through the dealer if you don't).

    b) The auto-re-locking when you unlock the car but don't open any door within a certain period of time. I believe this is a standard feature which can't be disabled. However, it also reduces the problem of unlocking the car unintenionally with the key in your pocket. Unfortunately, that doesn't work with the trunk.

    Re: Auto locking??

    I agree with Matt C .. this is very true... I can set up the b) option from the PCM, the a) option is automatic.

    Wish to God it did--the new key heads suck. I never had a problem with triggering the trunk release on the 996/986's I owned.

    Re: Auto locking??

    Thanks guys, but does all of you who have 997 when you leave the car unlock, the car will lock itself up automatically?

    Re: Auto locking??

    And yes, I do have Sport Chrono!

    Re: Auto locking??

    mine will only lock if I lock it!!

    Re: Auto locking??

    My car is a little wired! For example, When I am talking to my friend while my car is unlock beside me, 5 min or so later, the car will automatically lock itself. But this only happened occasionally, sometimes if i forgot to lock my car up for the night, the next morning the car will still be unlock. Anyone know why?

    Re: Auto locking??

    when in a certain mode, i think it has to hit 6mph with the driver's belt buckled

    Re: Auto locking??

    If you unlock with the remote and don't open the door, it will automatically lock within 5 minutes.

    Re: Auto locking??

    JL13,
    Check your key in your pocket. 997 has the worst key I have seen. The lock/unlock botton protrude out and is easily "pressed" by anything in your pocket.
    So if it is locked once and unlocked and you don't open the door, it will lock itself back.
    You may find the trunk pop up without you doing it also.
    Just an annoying feature of a $100k car

    Re: Auto locking??

    Auto lock works with or withour sport chrono... it is a standard in all 997.. if unlock the car with the remote key left it for 90 seconds it will do auto lock... if you were driving and steped out of the car it will not do auto lock... make sense in a way...

    Re: Auto locking??

    mine auto-locks after 30 seconds if you don't open the door.

    It will only do this if you don't open the door - basically it assumes that you didn't mean to unlock it. If it doesn't do this then something is wrong.

    Re: Auto locking??

    Ok, will the car lock itself, for example, when i got out of car after driving it and forgot to lock it?

    Re: Auto locking??

    no, that it will not

    True - with Sport Chrono option only. From main PCM screen hit "set" and follow the options for locking (I think the auto lock at 6 mph is referred to as "when starting"). I just set mine up to do it as I always 1) push the Sport button, 2) turn off PASM sport and 3) lock the doors (I live in the city!)....now if only someone can figure out how to default with 1) and 2).

    Re: Auto locking??

    no coochas, not ONLY with sport chrono. you can ask your dealer to set the setting for you, as i did.

    in the manual, it mentions:

    Automatic door locking
    Your authorized Porsche dealer can program diverse
    types of automatic door locking in the control
    unit of the central locking system:
    Type 1
    Doors lock automatically when the ignition is
    switched on.
    Type 2
    Doors lock automatically when a speed of
    3 - 6 mph (5 - 10 km/h) is exceeded.
    Type 3
    Doors lock automatically when the ignition is
    switched on. If doors are opened with the engine
    running, they lock again automatically when a
    speed of 3 - 6 mph (5 - 10 km/h) is exceeded.
    Type 4
    The doors do not lock automatically.
    Note
    Automatically locked doors can be unlocked with
    the central locking button or opened by pulling on
    the inside door handle twice.
    On vehicles with the Sport Chrono package, the
    PCM can be used to activate automatic door locking.
    Please observe the chapter "Individual Memory" in
    the separate PCM operating instructions.

    my dealer said on my car type 3 was unavailable so he set mine to type 2

    Re: Auto locking??

    Correct maoun.. the time is dealer setup, min is 90 sec.

    Re: Auto locking??

    True, but ONLY with Sport Chrono optioned cars can the owner change these sorts of settings w/o dealer help.

    Re: Auto locking??

    unless of course they own a PIWIS :-)
