2018 Kia Sportage - Locking Issue

Asked by Jun 28, 2019 at 10:37 AM about the 2018 Kia Sportage

Question type: General

Sorry for the long explanation:

These issues do not happen consistently, which I understand makes it difficult to troubleshoot.

• If open car doors, open lift gate. Close doors and then close the lift gate the car locks. This happens even if I am in close proximity to the car with the key fob in my hand.

• I had several instances where the car was running, I closed the lift gate and the car LOCKED! With my dog and keys in the car and the car running.  Thankfully, I was at home and was able to go into house to get the spare set (I could not get into the car otherwise).

• The car is set to lock all doors when shifted out of Park.  Does not always work that way.  When it doesn’t automatically lock, I have to press Unlock and then Lock to get the car lock. This also happens when I leave my car and try to lock it.  It will not always lock.  Sometimes it is with pressing the button on the FOB, other times the button on the door handle.

• AT times when I press unlock, the car unlocks the driver door and then relocks.  If I press it a second time, sometimes it will then unlock all the doors; others, it remains locked.

Thanks for any input. The dealer has not been able to figure it out.
