    Default Odd 'key card' problem !

    Hi
    During the week my wife was locked out of the Captur with the key card inside. She was going to an appointment, put her bags on the front seat after opening it with the button, then went to check on the mail, and the car locked itself. It would not open with the button and so she had to find another way to travel and leave her bags behind. Not happy !

    When I came home I went and unlocked it with my key in my bag and took her bags out and checked that the key was in there. The bags were on the passenger seat. No problem with locking as you walk away or unlocking as you come to the car using the button. Puzzle so I swapped our key cards so I could see if anything odd was happening. Note that I have recently put new batteries in both cards after a 'low battery ' message.

    Normally we never put the key card into the slot but just leave them in our bag or pocket. Usually works well. On discussion I asked what was in the second bag that was a bit larger and on the top of the hand bag. A laptop ! I now believe the laptop shielded the keycard from the 'reader' and it sensed that it had gone and locked the car when she closed the door. Bl**dy inconvenient and lucky it happened at home and not under worse circumstances. Ahhh the difficulties of the "smart" revolution

    The car is appropriately named.
