Hey everyone I just purchased a 2012 Cruz LTZ. I love it. Just a question it has keyless entry and push start. When I arm the car and lock it, and I get that if I have the key fob with me it will let me just open the door without hitting the button or using the key correct? But after looking it and arming the anti theft I left the key pretty far away I'm my upstairs apartment and tried to go down and open the door and it let me open it...the alarm did go off but it won't stay locked....letting anyone be able to get in. I tried going through settings but what am I missing? I don't want people to just be able to open the door when its locked. Any help would be awesome.

Also now after all this on the cluster it says service anti theft deterrent system....other than this issue I love the car its amazing. Thanks guys hopefully you can understand what I'm asking.

Hmmm I bought it from a dealership they only gave me one key fobe...maybe one was left in the car? I'll look inside it. I live in an apartment complex just hate the idea even tho its locked someone can still open the door. Again the alarm goes off but still opens. I can take it back to have it fixed/worked on if it needs to be but figured to try here to try and see if it was just a simple setting..there are some settings in the navigation touch display

Well yeah the fob I have is letting me lock it just its letting me just open the door without any fob next to me which I guess leaves the possibility there's two and one is in it. I'm going to check and search through it now

I've searched everywhere in the car, see no other fob. Really sucks because anyone can get into the car even with door locked and system armed.

Wierd spot to put a key fob under the spare tire but I'll take a look anyway. I'm gunna have to bring it back into the dealership. Lol remote keyless entry is confusing me and usually I'm really good at stuff lkke this.

I tried reading the manual couldn't find anything in it. It said it has a range of up to maybe 65 feet?? But I locked the door, armed the anti theft left the key up in my upstairs apartment went down and the door opened when I pulled the handle.... Frustrating. I know I'm missing something and being an idiot...

Hey everyone. It appears I fixed the issue. Was a setting in the configuration menu in the vehicle.

Also I contact at the dealership they had my other key fob. Thanks for everyone's ideas and help, loving the car.
