    I don't think you can disable that. I know you can change what doors unlock when the vehicle is in park in the dic settings.

    There is no way. It only takes two pulls to get out of the door when its locked, so what's the concern? The first pull unlocks the door, the second one lets you out.

    No concern, just wear and tear on the components. Had my power door locks fail in my Audi and out of warranty....it is not cheap. This feature ensures a half life of the mechanicals. Hopefully no issues, but have been burned once. Every other auto I have purchased allows the defeat of this feature.

    I don't know where you live but having ones doors lock at all times is one sure way to prevent getting car jacked. Just when you think it can never happen to you.... you end up on CNN.

    Re: How to Disable Auto Door Lock When Driving

    the electricals have a much smaller half life than the mechanicals so i wouldn't worry too much about the mechanical parts of the door handle being used twice each time you open the door when it is locked ...

    heck... don't worry about anything... be happy

    worry is a self inflicted mental handicap that clouds and consumes your mind
    break the spell and live happily ever after

    On my Avalanche, the dealer was able to reprogram the computer to police setting where the doors would not auto lock. Probably not an option for our SRX but never hurts to ask.

    I have the European model of the SRX. When I set the language to Swedish the auto door locks are disabled. I have tried everything to enable but failed.
    So your solution is to use Swedish in the language setup

    For safety sake, don't play with buttons while driving! Park your baby, scroll through your choices, decide, and THEN put the shifter in drive.
