Be aware the latest, greatest electronics and software can seriously f*ck your day. The only not-bad thing was this happened at home, rather than in some dark and sketchy part of the world. Could have been a VERY BAD THING if it happened in bad weather, bad area or a rest stop 100 miles from home.
Leaving to attend a meeting, my wife locked the house, placed her purse on the rear seat, closed the rear door and went forward to unplug the charge cable. Not known for certain, but it's possible but she brushed against the driver's door handle; in any case, the locks activated and when she unplugged the cable, the theft alarm activated.
When she plugged in the charge cable, the alarm ceased, but the display showed "Theft Attempt". My guess is the software is dumb enough to sense the key in the back seat is far enough from the receiver, so it must be outside. So if the sensor thought the key was outside, and she meant to lock the car, what triggered the theft alarm? Will the Bolt always think it's being stolen if the charge cable is removed while the doors are locked? If it thought the key was inside, why would it lock the door from the outside?
The larger problem was when leaving, she had locked the house; the house key and phone both were in her purse in the now locked Bolt; so no phone, no keys. She was able to go next door, ask the neighbor to call our daughter, who was fortunately available, to bring over a house key and fortunately my Bolt key was on the rack inside.
(And yes, we've since replaced the normally available hidden house key. When we added the Bolt, my wife wanted a house key on the Bolt fob and I just grabbed the hideout key and hadn't had another cut.) But as mentioned, a house key wouldn't have fixed anything if the above sequence had occurred 100 miles from home.
Anyone else had his Bolt lock him out? Is there any possible work-around to get into a locked Bolt when the key is inside?
