So I have been fooling around on how to lock the doors of my 2016 Honda HR-v and leave the car running while I am not in the car.
(this is so that I can let the car warm up on a cold winter's day)

Step one: get in the car with the key fob put my foot on the brake and start the car.
Step two: exit the car with key fob in hand and close all doors.
(the car will beep letting me know that there is no key present)

Step three: remove the physical key from the key fob and lock the door using the key via the door handle.

All of the doors will now be locked with the car running
( this trick will disable the key fob so you have to use the physical to unlock the door to gain access to the vehicle)

I hope this helps someone.
Ohmygoodness FUNONE,

You, sir, are brilliant. I just bought a black on black 2016 CRV-EXL and I need to be able to lock the doors while the car is running here in Las Vegas, NV. It is INSANE turning a car on and off while running errands in 105-115 degree heat. I just went out and tested your suggestion and it worked perfectly. Now this summer will be bearable.

Thank you, thank you!

Dog in Car

Thank you for the helpful information in this post since -- with all due respect to the police officer who responded -- this solves a dilemma for those of us who travel with our dogs. It's in the single digits in NE Ohio today -- i need to make a stop on the Turnpike on my way to Michigan and I will have a small dog with me. Can't take her into the rest stop, really want to leave the heat on and the car running, but do not want to leave the car unlocked. I'll take my chances with the window smashing car thief before I leave my puppy in a frigid (or -- in the summer -- a boiling) car.

FUNNONE..............You nailed it! Thank you. It works in my 2018 CR-V Touring. 28 degrees outside and wanted to deice without being stolen and parted out. Could not do it before I read your thread. No more staring out the window of the hotel while my CR-V warms up. while unlocked.

Important: The car MUST be unlocked with the manual key.

Hi everybody,

I have been trying to figure this one out.
I have 3 other cars and when the car is running i can put the keyless FOB in my pocket exit the car and follow the same process to lock the car as it was off.
point is the HRV does not do anything, it does not lock as long as the car is running.

update: i have read several posts in the forums and i do not think it can be done. but if anyone can help. No I don't really want to use the physical key. i know it will work but it defeats the point of having a keyless start/stop unlock/loc FOB.

Also the second thing i was reading is the auto lock when i walk away from the car (the car is off at this time) and that does not work either.
I am not sure about this one only being available on 2019 model year vs mine that is a 2018 EX.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

No, the HR-V won't allow locking the door, using the fob, with the engine running and key outside. It's one of the reasons why I bought an aftermarket remote starter, so I could use that to lock the doors when I exit with the engine running.

And it looks like the walk away autolock is a 2019+ feature too.

What Goober said, physical key is the only option for you.

I did find a way to lock with the HRV running and the key fob in my pocket.
1. Roll down the driver's side window
2. Exit the car
3. Reach in and press the lock button
4. Press the Auto button on the driver's side window to raise the window

The HRV continues to run, and you can walk away. Unfortunately, the fob will not UNLOCK the car now and you must use the key to manually unlock the running car.
