Then press and hold the reset stem for approximately two seconds to switch modes. The following are the mode choices:

Lock 1 (default)
Lock all doors when the vehicle is shifted out of PARK(P) with an automatic transmission, or when the vehicle speed is greater than 15 MPH (24 hm/h) with a manual transmission. Doors will unlock when the vehicle is shifted into PARK(P) with an automatic transmission, or when the ignition key is removed on a manual transmission.

Lock 2
Turns off the automatic door locks

Lock 3
Lock all doors when the vehicle is shifted out of PARK(P) with an automatic transmission, or when the speed is greater than 15 MPH(24km/hr) with a manual transmission. Drivers door will unlock when the vehicle is shifted into PARK(P) with an automatic transmission, or when the ignition key is removed on a manual transmision.

Lock 4
Lock all doors when the vehicle is shifted out of PARK(P) with an automatic transmission, or when the vehicle speed is greater than 15 MPH (24 km/hr) with a manual transmission. No doors will unlock



[color=orange]Once your selection is made, press the trip odometer reset stem QUICKLY ! The DIC should go blank at this point.[/orange]

This feature allows you to program your door locks to a
preferred setting.
To set your choice for this feature, perform the
following steps:
1. With the engine off, turn the key to LOCK.
2. Press and hold the power door lock button for approximately three seconds until the DIC display shows the current door lock mode.
3. To view the next available mode, press and hold the reset stem for approximately two seconds. Release the reset stem and press and hold again to view each mode.
4. Once the desired mode is shown on the DIC display, briefly press the reset stem to set your choice. The DIC display will then clear.

The following are the available modes:

Lock 1 (default): On vehicles with an automatic transmission, this mode locks all of the doors when the vehicle is shifted out of PARK (P) and unlocks all of the doors when the vehicle is shifted into PARK (P).
On vehicles with a manual transmission, this mode locks all of the doors when the vehicle speed is greater than 15 mph (24 km/h) and unlocks all of the doors when the key is removed from the ignition.

Lock 2: On vehicles with an automatic transmission, this mode locks all of the doors when the vehicle is shifted out of PARK (P) and unlocks the driver’s door when the vehicle is shifted into PARK (P).
On vehicles with a manual transmission, this mode locks all of the doors when the vehicle speed is greater than 15 mph (24 km/h) and unlocks the driver’s door when the key is removed from the ignition.

Lock 3: On vehicles with an automatic transmission, this mode locks all of the doors when the vehicle is shifted out of PARK (P). The doors will not automatically unlock.
On vehicles with a manual transmission, this mode locks all of the doors when the vehicle speed is greater than 15 mph (24 km/h). The doors will not automatically unlock.

Your advice worked great. Thanks. I went by the book and I couldn't get it to work. I went by the instructions on the thread and now my doors will not unlock when I put it in park, which is want I wanted.

Thanks

Great info on this issue, however what should I do. My truck locks when I turn it on no matter what. If I turn on the electrical everything locks and no matter what I set the mode to. Strange huh? I want to disable the auto lock feature but it won't let me.

My '05 will not let me disable my auto door locks either and they're really getting old, especially with a manual tranny.

It worked on my 2005. I just did it. When you push the reset button don't just push and release. Push and hold until the mode changes.

seems that 05 are missing option #2 to disable the auto lock completly, mine is like this unless there is some magic way to get to this option, auto door locks are here to stay...not a fan of this at all.

I have a 2005 Colorado and the same instructions are in my manual, but it didn't work for me. I've pressed and held the lock button with the door closed and open, with the radio on and with it off, with the engine on and with the engine off. Nothing shows up when I do this.

Nope nothing here, still have those morbid auto locks, someday there will be enough people who have died because they could not excape there 355.

I'm really starting to hate this intelligent programming. Damit i want to think for myself, if i want the doors to stay unlocked let them be unlocked. And no, i'm not going to manualy do it it myself.

Like I always said, If the vehicles get so smart they can go to work and make the monthy payments.

Somebody get me an Fing schmatic so i can see if it can be changed by taking out a wire.

I've looked at the wiring on the back of the master control drivers side. If the VSS signal is diffrent from the BCM signal to control the door then i'm in and i can solve the problem.

But i'm not going to start chopping wires.

I finally got mine to work. If I remember right...once you get in the vehicle, lock your doors using the control on the door...not your key fob. Then try it. That's the only way it worked for me.

Found out how to make this work, put key in and turn to acc. momentarily. Then return to the lock position (my radio was on). Then follow normal steps as shown above.

Re: Tip: Changing Automatic door lock modes

I have a 2008 Z71 ext. cab col- and I want the auto locks gone completely. I tried removing the fuse but that managed to kill my drivers window from operating. The dealer said the law will not allow them to disable it.......Ive tried all the "tricks" to turn it off but I'm still stuck with wearing the locks out just as fast. Help is appreciated.

this is just a awful thing to have in our trucks.I HATE IT YES, PULLING THE FUSE WILL KILL LOCKS BUT ALSO KILLS THE DRIVERS SIDE WINDOW.in winter you could get away with it as you dont open window in cold too much but summer,i like window open.

i hope someone finds a way to disable this worthless thing.

Re: Tip: Changing Automatic door lock modes

Evidently the automatic door locks on the newer models 2008 (?) and 2009 can not be disabled, as confirmed by my GMC dealer. Does anyone have any informmation on how to bypass the system.

passenger window still works with the door lock fuse removed,so if the drivers side window could be hooked up to another power source,that would do it.in winter i plan on removing the fuse as i dont use drivers window in winter.that will be at least 5 month i wont have to put up with those annoying door locks. :)
