If I leave the keys in the parked car for even a few minutes, the car locks itself. This has happened many, many times and at least 3 times with it running. Once in front of the emergency room entrance at the hospital while I was getting a wheel chair for my husband and my sister closed the door..The car was running. I do not have dates and you do not have enough room for me to report all the times this happened.

The car is designed to lock the doors when you start driving so I would have to guess it's a malfunction in that process.
