    Auto locking works great (on walk away) most of the times. The only hiccup I've seen is that if the headlights are auto on (low daylight), then walking away does not lock the car: mirrors remain unfolded, headlights stay on and the app shows unlocked).

    What am I doing wrong?

    Can't help. I have my headlights on Auto On, and have no issues with auto lock.

    The only time I've not seen the auto-lock kick in is when one of my passengers did not close their door all the way. I only found out after we walked in to the restaurant and was wondering why I didn't hear the beep. I checked the phone to lock it and specifically told me one of the doors is not closed so it will not lock the car. If you can consistently replicate the issue, see if you can try to lock from your phone remotely. It may tell you why it is not auto-locking. I too have the headlights on auto so that shouldn't be an issue.

    The only thing I can say is try a reset. What Firmware are you one? Maybe the firmware is buggy.
