Expert:  Gary replied 29 days ago.

do you have the owners manual on hand ?

can you look up personalize or auto door locks ?

it should have the procedure for setting the auto door lock feature to off

most are done through the information screen and options and select that feature to be off

how are you making out ?

the owners manual only tells how to set the UNLOCK system but not how to prevent them from locking. it seems gm wants to dictate my useage instead of letting me decide. on the otherhand they sell cars that will travel well in excess of 100 mph with no restrictions.

i agree with you usually when its set to not use unlock they sometimes will not lock automatically

if that option still will not stop then from autolocking on you the only other thing you can do is remove the lock relay but that will disable the power lock and unlock buttons
