    I got caught in this recently. Somewhere a firmware update (42?) changed my setting to always open partially. The SC was kind enough to point that out to me when I complained my doors never fully open anymore unless I manually select the full open mode. :oops:

    I read this thread a while back and didn't think anything of it.

    Today, for the first time in two weeks of ownership, I parked the car, shut the door, and came back to my driver's door being ajar (the crack-open).

    I have the car on autolock (walkaway) and have never seen it fail to do that.

    I drove the car to work (had stopped for coffee) and parked there.

    I shut the door, and this time watched the car as I walked away.

    Sure enough, the driver's door popped open (the crack-open, not the full open) when I was about 10 feet from the car - as if it read me approaching rather than leaving.

    I went back, shut the door and used the triple tap on the remote to lock it.

    As I retreated from the car it stayed locked this time.

    But I am little paranoid now.
