Are you planning to carry a spare key to get back in? What CCM behavior prevents you from having the doors locked while running?

How about you roll down the window, get out of the car, close door, reach in and lock the door, then quickly pull the auto-up window switch?

Lock it at the door lock with a different key. On my A5, if it is running, the remote will not lock the car but a key in the lock will.

Much safer. unlock all the doors, roll up all the window get out of car, close drivers door open the front passengers door, hit the lock switch and close the passenger door.

You should be able to do that with the Remote.
Central Electronics - Long Code Helper
Byte 4 - Bit 2 - Checked.

This should allow you to exit the running car and then lock/unlock the doors with the remote.

"Open/Close Windows via the Key Fob -- 2014+ ONLY"


To do it on MK4 it takes a special eeprom rewrite of the comfort module, not something you can do with coding.

Keep the remote in your pocket for locking and unlocking, and use the valet key for the ignition?

You could put the valet key on a detachable key-ring like this:
