Three or 4 times in the last several years, I have arrived at my destination, and after I shut off the car and take the keys out, the doors lock and the car alarm starts beeping and I am locked in. I cannot unlock the doors and the car will not start back up. (It is frightening.) All of the times this has happened has been in the summer after I have driven a short distance on our beltline (I live in Raleigh, NC.) I mention that only because that means I was going 60mph or so, for a short distance.
This lasts for about 5 min or longer, and is frightening. I don’t really know how long, but I’ve had time to get the manual out and try to look up what is happening. I have tried wiggling the steering wheel. Nothing seems to help, but it stops and then I can get out. For the next several weeks I am afraid to role the windows all the way up, then I forget about it because the incidents are far between.
I have regular car guys (North Raleigh Radiator) who I like and they seem competent. They couldn’t find anything wrong.
After my normal place couldn’t find anything wrong, I tried to put it out of my mind. It had not happened for a long time. There are many months between this happening.
Honda has my car right now, and they can’t find anything wrong. They’ve looked for two days. They called today to ask for more information about when it happens. They had not realized it only happens after being driven; it never happens when I first start it. They are going to keep it another day and see if they can find anything.
Has anyone else had this happen?
