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.

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
