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.
