    Anyone knows how to disable the auto lock feature that kicks in when driving? I would like the doors to lock when I press the lock button on the remote, and the doors to unlock when I press the unlock button... only when I press the button... as opposed to have the car lock the damn doors by itself when I start to drive. It drives me crazy to always have to unlock the doors when I want to take things from the back for example...

    I'd imagine there's a way to somehow hack into the cars computer to do that, but I don't think it's an option that you can just turn on or off.

    I think it's considered a safety feature as my Ford Escape does the same thing ('12 model). As to how to fix it, that's for someone else to explain :)

    Don't the doors unlock when you put it in park?

    It IS considered a safety feature. My Acura doors unlock when I turn the key off.

    I believe that this is all programmable by the dealer. Ask your service tech.

  6. What's the problem? It doesn't unlock when you press the unlock button?

    Seems to me like your car already does what you want it to do, with the added benefit of providing additional safety in the event of a crash.

    Good luck getting a major safety device turned off by anyone! Lawsuit much?

    Yes, they do. Or should, anyway. I own a 2008 base model.
  8. Before anyone else posts, give the OP's 2nd and 3rd sentences a good hard read and think about them for a moment before posting.

    DO IT!!!!

    This used to work.

    • 1. Open the driver’s door and put the shifter in Park.
    • 2. Turn the ignition to On (II).
    • 3. Press and hold the lock side of the master lock for about five seconds until you hear two clicks.
    • 4. Within five seconds, turn the ignition to the Lock position.

    No, they stay locked and if I use the remote to open the doors, one click will open my door but I need two clicks in order to open passengers doors :(

    How this can be a safety feature? In a case of accident the damn door will be locked , the last thing I want in case I need to leave the car immediatly, I think.
  15. It adds structural integrity by keeping the doors from flying open when you get nailed.

    Trust me, it is a GOOD thing.

    deal with it
  16. bogus

    When you pull the lock release it also unlocks the door.

    It can be reprogrammed to unlock all the doors with a single click.

    But if that is really an issue, you might want to consider joining a gym.

    The door wont unlock unless I click the remote or the unlock button that is located at the door, it wont unlock all doors unless I click or push the button again, the problem is that I never know when the door will be unlock, this is the first time a car give me this kind of trouble, it acts very erratic, I was hopping somebody here knew how to disable this feature or at least make it work more normal but seenms that I am going to need to paid some cash to my friends at the car deales :(
  18. Hit google for this issue. If it is a common problem there should be a fix posted that you can do yourself.

    That's a safety feature, I expect you will not be able to over ride. One click opens the door and lets you in without unlocking other doors that a pursuer may have access to.

    EDIT: Well, I'm wrong, see next post!
