Locked inside car once security system engages
By dmc812 on
2009 Honda Accord EX-L 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I have a complaint with the security system Honda uses. I have been inadvertently locked inside my 09 Accord and unable to get out. Apparently, once the anti-theft system engages after 30 seconds, there is no way to manually unlock the car doors nor will using the key fob "unlock" button work from the inside of the car. The car can only be unlocked from someone on the outside or by starting the engine, which disengages the security system. I find this to be a huge safety issue for people that are inside the car and are accidentally locked inside w/o a key to start the engine. I have complained to Honda with no resolution to this safety concern.
Suggested Improvements
Fix the security system so that people on the inside of the locked car can manually unlock the car to get out. Make it clear in the owner's manual that once the security system engages, you cannot unlock the car from the inside unless you start the engine or have someone on the outside unlock it. Never, ever enter your car without your key!!!! It is frightening to think a child (without adult supervision) could lock themselves in the car and not be able to get out.
