I left my 2016 Touring and it self-locked normally. Returning I opened the trunk, put something in and closed it. When I tried to enter the car the door would not open. All doors locked. None of the buttons on the remote did anything. The emergency key turned in the lock but did not open the door (tried turning clockwise and anticlockwise). I noted that the car taillights and front day lights were on and stayed on.
It was as if the car was in a lockout mode of some sort. There was no audible alarm.
I called Honda for help but the technician was mystified.
Eventually I turned the key and pressed the black button by the door latch and things reverted to normal.
Not sure if it was what I did or the emergency just timed out.

This happened to me too. I closed the trunk a little hard, then all the lights came on and stayed on, but when I used the actual key to unlock the door, it did, but it set off the alarm. I pressed the alarm button to shut it off and it did and all was fine. super weird though. Wondering if slamming the trunk made the security system think the car was being broken in to

Could be a safety feature like how there's a tab in the trunk for kidnapped people to pull, this lockout could be for theft deterrent for when you're unloading something while the car is running.

There is currently a Service bulletin out for replacing the Body Control Module due to walk away function not working, even though yours did lock my guess is your other issues are related to the BCM being faulty.

This exactly us happened to me twice now. Did you ever figure out why it happened?
