Walk Away question... So I exited the car with the fob while my wife stayed in it. The car beeped and locked. A minute after, my wife got out and left. The car angrily beeps. Is it now locked or unlocked?

It's more of a security system question. The security alarm activated when you walked out of range with the fob. The door she opened unlocked 'forcibly' which triggered the alarm. The rest of the doors should still be locked.

Tip from HondaPro Jason to avoid this is to leave fob in car when passengers will remain inside:

Just going to assume that you powered down the car before exit. You could always leave the car on, and exit with the key, you will still get the initial "key fob not detected" beeps, but the security system wouldn't have activated in that scenario.

My tip, as it's worked flawlessly for us, is one of our keys stays in her purse, and I use a carabiner and mine stays on my belt. Often times when we are out running errands, one of us runs in while the other is in the car, this way we can string together several quick stops into a "single" trip.

Is there an OEM anti-theft feature that blares rapid honks

If I remember correctly, the 10th gen Honda Civic had a system that honks rapidly if I pull the door handle 5-6 times with no key present when the car is locked. The rapid honks lasts like 2 seconds.
I tried it on the Insight and no such honks happened. Is anyone familiar with this feature?

Was this it a 'hidden' feature/hack on the GenX Civic? Maybe pulling the handle 5-6 times without fob triggers "forcible entry" threshold on the GenX Civic?

I skimmed both the Gen3 Insight and GenX Honda Civic manuals and didn't find anything mentioning this. I guess one could also walk up to a GenX Civic and give it a try to really double check/confirm if this works...
