Auto Lock Overide

3 posts in this topic

I have an 03 Dodge Durango that has the auto lock feature where ounce you put the vehicle in gear and get over a certain rpm all the passenger doors lock. It's a pain in the butt. I don't have kids and I'm tired of going to the drivers side door to unlock all the other doors to get something out every time I stop. Is there an overide for this? Cuz it sucks. I'll take it to a dealer if I have to but does anyone out there know how to unprogram this?

This is for an 04 durango. This info is in your owners manual also. It should be the same or simular for an 03.

Automatic Door Locks

If this feature is enabled, your door locks will lock

automatically when the vehicle’s speed exceeds 15 mph

(24 km/h).

This feature is enabled when your vehicle is shipped

from the assembly plant and can be disabled by using the

following procedure:

1. Enter your vehicle and Close all doors.

2. Fasten your seat belt (Fastening the seat belt will

cancel any chiming that may confuse you during this

programming procedure).

3. Place the key into the ignition.

4. Within 10 seconds, cycle the key from the OFF position

to the ON position four times; ending in the ON position

( Do not start the engine ).

5. Within 30 seconds, press the driver’s door lock switch

in the LOCK direction.

6. A single chime will be heard to indicate the feature has

been disabled.

7. To re-activate this feature, repeat the above steps.

8. If a chime is not heard, program mode was canceled

before the feature could be disabled. If necessary, repeat

the above procedure.

    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
    • Nice!  WTG!
    • I've got a bunch of Humminbird Snapshots of my DI and SI stuff. Many people pay for the technology and don't know what they are looking for. Study these shots and tell me what you think you see.
