    Auto-lock is an anti-carjacking measure, but can be annoying. You can turn it off with VCDS if you want to.
    I find you have to hold the button on "unlock" for a bit, not just press it and release. Give it a try?

    Yep, it lights up when lights are on, and turns red when locked. Thats it!
    I think I'll disable it with VCDS.

    Got the anti-hijack disabled, and also now 1 press of the key to unlock all doors.
    Thanks everyone.

    also got brake lights that now flash under heavy braking. And I thought this feature was only on very new hi end cars?
    Cool for a 2005 car. By why is it not enabled from the factory?
