When I lock the doors with the key remote the lights flash 9 times instead of 3 times. This problem does not always happen every time I lock my doors. The car is a 2009 passion. I've also noticed the doors don't lock once you take off

Also check rear hatch, if you release it with the remote by accident, the car behaves this way until you open and close the hatch.

On our 2013.
If you lock the doors.
Then unlock them.
And not open a door in around 60 sec,, after the lights go out.
It will relock itself!

I had this happen a week back. I'm not sure how many blinks were going on. I do know I 'hit' the remote. I was trying to grab shopping backs from the seat, it was brutally cold, near zero and my remote got pinched in my fingers and bags as I was trying to hurry. Panic mode went off. I shut panic off and went to lock the door as usual and kept flashing way more than 3 times, and no door lock. I have no idea what I did to remedy it. I did open the door, close the door and pressed some buttons and somehow it went back to normal. In that kind of cold, it scared the crud out of me.

So now if you walk up .
Hit your remote, to unlock it.
Do not open it.
Wait 60 second s or so. 3 flashes then click, auto lock reactivated.
Computer not seeing entry .
