I have the HIGHLINE TDI 2011 and I want to warm it up in the morning but lock it at the same time…
I have those keys where I can just approach the door and have it unlocked BUT it doesn't work when the car is locked from the inside…
…Is there any way to lock/unlock the car with the keys if it's on and locked from the inside?
Actually after 10 min the car was blowing warm air and I wasn't freezing so even though I appreciate you guys replying, my question was about locking and unlocking the car with the key while its locked from the inside. The only way to do it now is to break open that piece on the door and insert key..
That's why you generally drive easy and keep rpm's low prior to oil reaching operating temperature so that you can mitigate the engine wear; and even, if you own a tdi, avoid idling as much as possible until the engine has warmed up. I understand your question is far different from the information a few of us provided. We're just trying to give you a heads up.
Just picked up a 2013 GLI last week and I have a similar question. Its freaking freezing here now and I want to warm the car up for a couple minutes before I jump in. Notwithstanding the pros/cons of this I have a question.
I find that once I start the car and leave it running I can't lock it from outside of the car with neither my key fob or the door sensor. Can this be enabled? I went through the convenience options and could not find an applicable option.

I don't know how VW KESSY works... I don't have it. BUT, I did have an Nissan Altima rental for a few days, (POS btw) and it had kessy. When I left the car on and walked away with the keyfob, the MFD would say NO KEY! NO KEY! and it wouldn't be drivable but would not shut off...
I'm curious if anyone has tried this or would be willing to try it.

For instance this morning it was quite frosty and it would have been nice to run the car for a couple minutes allowing the defroster to work its magic while I got lunch ready. But since I cant lock it and murphy's law and all, I didnt.
