Do you mean other than someone stealing your car?

The car will not let you lock the doors with the key fob in the car. Otherwise, the car still hibernates after a period of time to a reduced state of draw on the 12 volt battery.

I had a strange thing happen to me once. I had my fob in my bag as I was leaving the airport. I think my wife's was in the hatch. I walked up to the volt, opened the hatch, put my bag in, closed it, walked to the driver's seat, panicked for a sec when I realized what I had done, the signed in relief as the volt had unlocked the driver door, but not all 4 doors as it was programmed.

Devine intervention, or awesome H, design?

I've never met a person who actually does this. Seems like you are just asking for someone to steal the car. One of the perks of having keyless ignition is that you don't have to take the ket out of your pocket/purse so why would you even worry about it?

I learned long ago in life that car keys never leave the right front pocket of my jeans, wallet never leaves the left rear pocket. No exceptions, never, ever.

I accidentally lock my key in my hatch inside a gym bag fairly regularly. By mistake of course. Not sure why it does this.

So you never pay for lunch? ;)

I do something similar, but my wallet is in a front pocket. I've had it work it's way out of a rear pocket. Might make it more of a challenge for a pickpocket too.

You must never wear pants that don't have pockets. Or do things like workout.

I keep my keys in left front and wallet in right front. A very minimal slim wallet.

The Volt locked? I did that once and luckily the doors didn't lock.

Yes, several times now. It seems it happens when, as I'm shutting the hatch, I realize what I am doing, and I don't slam it shut. So, it's half-closed. The doors remain locked and I can't open the hatch. Thankful for OnStar...

Last weekend I left my Volt at my parents house to borrow their SUV and trailer. My mother was going to use my Volt to run errands, so I left my spare keys in the cup holder. Apparently it still locked as soon as I walked away with my regular key in my pocket. I wouldn't have thought it would automatically lock with keys in the vehicle, but apparently it does.
