Start engine, use second remote to lock the door. If you want to manually lock the door with a valet key, pull the handle and lift the little lock cover to expose the manual lock.Hi all, is there a way to lock the doors on my 2010 Golf while it is running? -33 this morning and I would like to let it run for a bit but not leave it on the street with it running and the doors unlocked.
I am an old school licensed mechanic and I have to warm engine for at least 5 minutes @ temperature below -20*CTo TDIDSG4ME, I don't know why you would want to do that. I know it's really cold up there, but I would think you would want to warm the car as soon as possible. At idle, these engines don't generate that much heat, and it would not really warm up at those low ambient temps. I think you should just get in, start it and drive off.. Go easy on it until it warms. No full throttle accelerations, keep the revs down until the temp gauge comes up. Then motor on.
This will not work. Valet key might work but I don"t want to remove factory keyhole covers.Start engine, use second remote to lock the door. If you want to manually lock the door with a valet key, pull the handle and lift the little lock cover to expose the manual lock.
I was also wondering if the element is only activated with the heater at full blast."I learned about this feature recently on this forum, and was quite dissapointed that I went most of the winter not even knowing about it..."
Just curious, is this feature mentioned in the Owner's Manual?
