wondering if someone can explain this difference to me

if the car is parked outside and i hit to open the doors but do not get in within 45 seconds or so, the car automatically locks the doors for me; however, when i do this with the car parked in my garage over night, the doors remain open until the next morning. What is going on here?

If you unlock without opening a door then the doors will auto lock. Are you opening a door in the garage? If it works outside then it should work inside. The car doesn't know the difference between inside outside or light and sun light. There is got to be something different in what you are doing inside the garage.

It's a backup incase you accidentally unlocked the doors with your keys in your pocket. If it doesn't sense a door opening within the set time it will re-lock and arm the security system. This system is only activate when the car's security is already alarmed. If you get out of your car after shutting off the engine and do not alarm the alarm it won't auto lock. Incase your going back and fourth moving grocery into the house or what not. Their assumption is you will lock / alarm the car when you are done.

I don't think any other car will auto lock the doors for you unless you have a aftermarket alarm system that has the functionality of auto locking. I can tell you that is a pain in the butt when it auto locks while your washing / detailing the car. So it makes sense that it only auto locks when the car is alarmed and you unlock it. Just that extra protection incase you do accidentally unlock the car with the fob, knowing it will auto lock and arm.

edit: Just re-read your post. So your saying your doing the same thing with th only difference being outside vs in a garage?

My prior car was a 03 Lexus GS300 and it also would re-lock if you didn't open a door within a certain time after unlocking with the factory FOB.

got to be opening a door...while inside the garage

my previous 2001 accord and 2003 odyssey would re-lock after 30 seconds if no door was opened. however, this operation happened only if you unlocked it from the fob.

You are obviously doing something different in the garage for this to happen.
Maybe give it another test ?

hi, i live in dhaka, bangladesh and i've just bought a 2011 sonata 2.0 from the local dealer (only hyundai dealer) here. during the pre delivery demonstration of the car i was told that the car had speed sensing auto door locks, but that wasn't the case after i took delivery of the car. i read in the user manual that both the auto door lock/unlock options can be activated from the trip computer. i tried doing the same and although the computer takes me to the auto lock/unlock options, they seem to be deactivated in my car. i contacted the local dealer here but they couldn't really give me a concrete solution except that they would contact Korea and that probably it would not be possible to have the speed sensitive auto lock/unlock installed in the car because of cabling and fuse box architecture (personally, i don't buy their logic).
i went through a few forums and found out that this is option can be activated by the dealer. is that true?
wud appreciate if sm1 cud help me out here.....

Hi I have a similar problem. I knew that if you clicked the fob and then did not open the door within a certain amount of time it would re lock in case you accidentally did it. But, my problem is when I park the car in the garage and it is unlocked and I go in the house and then come back to the garage to get something out of the car. It is locked and I did not lock it. Can this be fixed at the dealer?

Here is the way I understand the auto-locking works:

If you stop the car, unlock the doors, and get out of the car (ie open the door), it will remain unlocked.

On the other hand, if you are outside of the car and lock the doors, then later unlock them with the fob or bluelink, they will re-lock after 30 seconds unless you get into the car (ie open a door) first.
