steering wheel to see what a Prius without that option is like...
(i.e. you lock/unlock your doors with the buttons on the fob, and you
start the car by putting the fob into the dash slot.) Usually you
would use this button when turning your car over to a valet to make
using your car easier, or if you were going to leave your car
undriven for a while to reduce the 12v power drains of the Smart
system polling for a keyfob in range.
Yes, you can leave the car running - just that the keyfob would still
be in the slot! (The fob is locked in the dash when the car is on.)
As for the car being locked, you'd have to leave a window open so
that you can lock the car once you exit it, or otherwise lock the car
using a second remote fob.

What I want is for the driver's door unlocking to also unlock (only)
the left rear door, which is close enough to the driver that it
doesn't change the security situation much compared to unlocking only
the driver's door.
What I want doesn't appear to be one of the options offered: 1.
Driver unlocks driver only; 2. Driver unlocks every door; 3. Each
door unlocks only itself.
I want 4: Driver unlocks left side doors, Passenger unlocks right
side doors, rear unlocks rear.
I already bought the add-on kit that locks all doors once the vehicle
is moving 15mph. It makes my wife feel much safer when driving in the
city. I'm surprised that option wasn't built in. However, I have met
some people who actually don't want it, fearing if they have a crash
that doesn't break windows, or a medical emergency, it would keep
rescuers out. Surely most people carry the usual emergency tool, a
combination window-breaker/seatbelt-cutter, in case of encountering
such a situation (from inside my vehicle or outside someone else's),
which seems an adequate solution for such emergencies?
