I'm not entirely sure; however, a good call or visit to your selling dealer would be a good idea, as they can go through the information with you first hand. It's a great idea to have a solid relationship with your dealership, in my opinion. Doesn't mean they'll charge you anything, and you'll have people you can count on, especially during the warranty period.
some vehicles with factory or after market alarm systems will do that.i found out the hard way.i was buying a vehicle several years ago.i was test driving it,stopped,turned the engine off at home,got out,shut the door and was talking to friend,60 seconds later i hear,CLICK.the doors locked,both sets of keys on key ring in the switch,windows up,alarm set?i got lucky,had a lock out kit,got the keys out pretty easy.YOU WON'T DO THAT BUT ONE TIME,IF THAT!!
