Can I lock my running car?
I have a 2015 Latitude. Keyless entry, keyless start (Do they ALL have that? I have only owned this one so I don't know if that's an option or part of a package or whatever.) My thing is this. Currently it is 91 degrees here in Ohio. I was out doing stuff, all stuff that I could do from the car. At some point I wanted to run into a store. However, it is too hot to do that with my dog in the car. If I could leave it running with the AC on and lock it, that'd be cool. (Get it? AC? Cool?) I have read some (let's use the term) vigorous discussion on a Facebook forum (that I left) with people arguing both ways, that if the fob leaves the cab the car will shut off in 5 minutes, that it just wasn't possible and it's a security thing..... Has anybody actually done this in the first person who can tell me the real story? It seems to me that I should be able to do this. I can't be the only one that needs to keep his dog cool in those rare instances where I need to run into a store and don't know how long I will be.
