I have a 2006 sts. I want to disable auto lock when I shift from park. Is it possible to disable auto lock when I put the car in drive??

Do you have an owners manual?

Under feature programming in the radio.

Do yourself a favor. Get on Ebay, get a manual, and read it front to back, at least twice. There's probably a bare minimum of 10 things that you don't know your car can do.

When and if the doors auto lock/unlock can be personalized on my Seville, I'm sure it's the same with the STS.

No! on STS that feature could not be disabled under feature programming in the radio. I am also looking for a way to disable it, If I find something I will write how.

I know it's for 07 but go with it. If that doesn't do it I don't know what to tell you. I did it in my 07 sts and in my current car.

...well, copy the link and change 2007 to 2008...or to another year (most work)...easy task:

e.g.

2005

2006 doesn't work

2008:

God you're smart. Never thought of that. You learn something new everyday.

2007 STS Page 148: "Your vehicle also has an automatic door locking feature that is always on. You cannot turn the automatic door locking feature off. See Programmable Automatic Door Locks on page 99."
2008 STS Page 2-60: "Your vehicle also has an automatic door locking feature that is always on. You cannot turn the automatic door locking feature off. See Programmable Automatic Door Locks on page 2-15."
Maybe I have bad English,but not so to not understand an owners manual???

Press the "config" hard key. Then press the "vehicle" touchscreen button. Then press "personal settings" touchscreen button. Then press "lock/unlock" touchscreen button and the options are right there. I saw this and I just had to go out to the car to make sure for myself. This is the same thing with my 2007 which also had nav. If you don't have the nav I don't know what to tell you. Maybe it's not an option. But if you do, that's how you do it.

I don't have Nav. I have a Base Audio Systems, and probably therefore I don't have that option, unfortunately.
Is there no other way to do it? :banghead:

I'm on an iPhone right now but if I was sitting in front of a computer id open up one of the links to the manuals above and hit ctrl+f and search the entire PDF for the word "lock" with the intent of finding phrases like "doors lock in gear" or "doors lock when on" or something. The word lock shouldn't appear so many times that this would be ridiculous. Try it it can't hurt.

There goes the plan to push those annoying kids out of the car into freeway traffic.

Even the Nav Supplement doesn't have the details. I'll have to check my car to see.
