My other cars work as above, however:

I swear that I can lock the door while open provided that I haven't previously started the car. Maybe the PO modified this, the door buzzer seems to have been disabled. However nothing else appears to have been modified (e.g., o2 ticker is still ticking away, no pop-off valve (yes, I know))
