Has anyone figured out a way to lock an Audi with the engine running?
You are probably wondering why someone would ask such an asinine question. Here's why:
Generally, in the morning, I like to let the car warm up for 15-20 minutes before driving it. I am concerned an enterprising, yet scheming, passerby might notice the opportunity and hop in and take off. Believe it or not, this recently happened to a friend of mine that lives relatively nearby - one minute eating breakfast and the next, nothing but footprints and tire tracks in the snow where his car was.
On my previous car, I could do this by using the remote entry key to lock the door once outside. When warming up my S4, I use the valet key to start the car and find that the keyless entry does not function once started (neither does the button-activated automatic door lock). I have the sneaking suspicion that I am overlooking some extremely simple method to accomplish this, but have yet to find it.
