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.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
