Why is the safety lockout activated on my VW?

Are you using the auto key to unlock it, then minutes later being locked out without you doing anything? If so, I had the same problem. Best way I found to deal with it is to be sure to start the car after you unlock it. Even if you then turn it off and leave the car, it will not automatically lock again until you have again pressed the unlock button on your auto key.
