in summary is it a feature of the focus to lock itself and ignore the key fob in the car or is it a glitch.

It happened to me as well. I locked my keys in the trunk before. I think it has to do with the older BCM software. If you touch the outside of your handle to lock the doors twice, does your horn honk?

I was under the impression that with the new BCM programming, the horn does not honk.

The BCM update fixed some issue with the car not unlocking when using the key FOB, though I don't know if that is the IA key FOB or the base model ones (or both.)

One day I tried every possible way to lock my fob in the car and it just wouldn't do it. No matter how or where I put the fob and manipulated the environment, my car always unlocked or popped the hatch. Then one morning I couldn't find my fob. I went into the garage and it was laying inside the cup-holder, with the car locked. Luckily I had my second fob nearby, but I think that there is the possibility that there is a time-delay that locks the car back up if someone hasn't come to retrieve the fob.

How long was the delay between her shutting the door and you realizing that it was locked in the car?
