Comfort access - car started, doors locked

Does anyone know if with CA you can start the car (without the key in the ignition), then get out and lock the car (with the car still started and the key still in your pocket)? Just curious if you could do this to warm up the car and have it locked at the same time. Thanks!

Comfort Access won't lock if the key is in the car, even if the car is off.

Yes. If you leave the (comfort access) fob in your pocket, start the car, get out (taking the fob with you), you can lock the door and the engine continues to idle. I did it this morning.

Tested it again when I got to work. 2 out of 2. I rarely put the fob into the ingition, just leave it in my pocket. The comfort access fob doesn't have a rechargable battery, so there isn't much point in putting into the ingition slot.
