Hi all, just got my 2017 Mosaic Black Premium 3 days ago and I'm loving it.

So far only problem is the mobile app notifications, not able to alert me when it is fully charged, Onstar is working on the problem..

I look forward to interacting and sharing on this forum.

Quick question, I can't seem to get my auto drv door unlock to unlock as I approach? I've triple checked the settings and so far I still have to press the little button on the handle to unlock the door. any of you have a fix for this?

Cheers all and have fun.

Welcome to the forum, you will find all the information you need or desire here.

Don't know about the 2017, my 2014 will not unlock any doors on approaching the vehicle. You have to push the button in the handle or remove the key fob from your pocket and press the unlock button.

Alright, thanks for the welcome and the answer... perhaps I misunderstood the meaning of auto unlock.. It's not a big deal in any case, you still have to get your hand on the door handle.. I'm sure after a while pressing the thumb button will become second nature..

Cheers

'auto unlock' in the menus refers to unlocking when you shift to park.
There's no handsfree approach unlock, just the door buttons.

There is handsfree auto-lock, though, under passive unlock menu.
It will lock a few seconds after it detects the keyfob has left the car and all doors are closed with passive lock enabled. You can set it to just lock, or also lock + horn to let you know it has worked.

8 seconds exactly for Gen 1. Haven't a Gen 2 to test. In my case, that's exactly enough time for me to close the driver door, plug in the car, remember I left something in the back seat and have the car lock just as I'm reaching for the handle every single time. :)

It's enough for me to open the passenger side, drop in my bag/whatever and walk around to the other side and get in.
If I stop to unplug, too slow :(

It's also long enough for me to walk a fair distance away thinking it hasn't locked and I need to go back, then *honk*

If you don't have enough time and want to re-open a door, try the setting where you can just have the fob near the car, and yes, you'll have to press the button on the handle

LOL, yep that about covers it.. hehehe

For me right now, still adjusting, I am at the point where I have the FOB proximity enabled, and as I get to the car I unlock the rear left passenger door, place my work bag on the back seat, then close the door, Unplug the charge cable, go to the driver door, and yes press the button again (just because) and lock all the doors... hahaha

It'll take some time to get the routine going.. it's all new.. but I'm loving it! :)


Cheers all
