    Hatch Lock

    When I lock the car after getting out, it never locks the back hatch. I looked at user settings....what am I missing. I have to use the app to lock it.

    Technically yes. But...
    The only way to open is having the key fob real close to the back.
    If you walk to the side of the car, it doesn't work/open. I have replicated this results on a 2016 and my 2019.

    if you walk around to the back with the smart key on you, you can open it. Leave the smart key some distance from the car and try the rear hatch to see if it's locked after pushing the lock button.

    I have the smart key on my Soul.

    You need to update your Drive info, so your questions/comments make more sense.

    Trying to find that location to edit so I can. I dont even see drive info from the phone.

    Thing is, i go to the app from in my office and go to start the car (it was 111 today). And the app tells me the door is unlocked.

    Go to the link at the bottom of this post. You can only get there from the computer app, not sure about the phone app though.

    I've yet to find a way to "lock" the hatch. The unlock buttons don't seem to do anything either. Only way I can get in is to walk around the back with the fob on me. I use the app to start my car every day, and haven't gotten any hatch unlocked warnings yet. If I leave the doors unlocked (for a few seconds even) the app lets me know, but nothing about the hatch.

    Looks like the "smart" key is not so smart after all...

    I have my doubts about this artificial intelligence thing.
    It smells a bit like artificial stupidity.
    And it is well know that you can't fix stupid.
