automatic door locks 2016 ILX

It would seem logical that the Acura would automatically lock all doors after a preset time after parking with all windows and doors closed. I had a Mercedes that did that (but nothing else very well) but have not seen a way to achieve that with the ILX. Did I miss something in the driver's manual? Any guidance would be much appreciated.

I double checked the User's Guilde and I could not find a way to set the doors to auto lock either. I know my RDX did this but it looks like the function is not part of the ILX systems.

I don't believe your car will lock automatically for you unless you unlock your car, but don't open the any of the doors, then after a certain time the car will relock itself. You can adjust the time it takes to relock itself in the tech menu.

Im coming from BMW and know German cars inside out pretty well. In most cars if you unlock the car with the remote and didn't open the car it will unlock. In my 335i BMW i have option to keep it or remove it.
Now back to ILX you are provided with settings for doors in your dashboard menu. I'm trying to figure out what you want to accomplish! drive the car-- stop-- get out-- car should lock itself after a specific time ? (if the keys in your pocket)
Key-less entry: at all times key in your pocket, the minute you touch the handle the door will unlock based on your setting driver door or all doors including trunk. Now existing the car same similar operation with the exception of clicking the small button on the handle and that will lock your car, with a peep if set. if that didn't happen then one of the doors or trunk still open.
There is no need to touch your keyfob at all unless you want to open the car/trunk from distance for someone else.
settings for doors/ while shift in park you can access through the steering wheel

I had this feature b4 on my chevy omg i hated it. I lock my keys in the car like 3 times. And when i pass the car down to my bro the same happen to him. But that was back then. The ilx does not allow the doors to lock with the key inside thank god!! I had all the doors locked with the trunk open forgot my key in the trunk and the trunk would not close with the key inside, it made a beeping sound to alert me.
But i did notice if i unlock the doors with the key and dont actually open the door, the car locks the doors again i check the settings and we are able to change the time , i have mine on 30 seconds, if i dont open my door after 30 seconds from unlocking it will lock again

I the fob is inside the car, your car won't lock. Even you have 2nd key inside and you try to lock with your first key. It will not lock as well.
