    In the DIC you are able to disable that feature. Use the steering wheel control. IIRC its the switch with the "i" (lower right corner) then use the arrow button to disable.

    The only 2 options I see are "Lock Doors: In Gear" and "Lock Doors: With Speed".

    Looked everywhere and can't find the option. The manual doesn't list it either, looks like they dropped it in '06. Shucks!

    oldrunner, I am sorry I missled you, I could have sworn that there was an option that turned off the auto locking in the DIC. My wifey just came home with our "station wagon" and I went to see for myself, low and behold no option for turning off the auto locking in our '05.


    sorry man

    Like I said that's gm's penny pinching for you they thought owners wouldn't notice them removing certain a small things but its noticeable it has came back to get them from what I have heard but we haven't had the most done I have seen on the third gen forum section that there is more stuff that was axed

    Not a problem, appreciate you trying. It's a mute point anyway. I told my wife I was trying to turn the lock off and she said she wanted it on soooo, guess it stay's on. Someone asked me this week why I bought an SUV and I said I wanted a pickup and my wife wanted an SUV so we compromised and got an SUV. Really like it though...
