How Do You Get The Doors To Lock When Moving Off ?

This feature (in any new format) does require dealer activation.

I wanted it too, initially, but after getting used to just pressing the lock button for lenghty drives, it became apparent that either pressing it again to unlock, or forgetting the unlock button and having to pull twice on the doorhandle, makes it less desirable. For all those times I merely pull the car out of the garage or need to shuffle cars around in the driveway, (anything not worth locking the door for) it makes getting out such a bigger hassle.

For me, the feature would only be worthwhile if it would automatically unlock the doors upon turning off the ignition, or unlocked and opened the door in one uninterupted motion. Perhaps you aren't aware you have to tug once to unlock, then again to open.

Furthermore, my 2004 F350 crewcab (4 door) truck has the same speed activated doorlock feature. Didn't need the dealer to activate that, but then again it is non-defeatable.

Anyways, in the truck, a single handle pull unlocks and opens the door in one uninterupted motion. What peeves me is when i get out, and try to open the rear door to get my jacket or whatever from the backseat, and that rear door is still locked.

In the truck, I wish the one door handle open undid all 4 door locks; instead i have to remember to hit the unlock button after exiting and before closing the driver door.

Cool features, but neither vehicles door locking system is perfectly user-friendly for me.
