Door Locks lock themselves?

Door Locks lock themselves?

Postby Dmanj [OP] » Jan 18 2012, 11:57pm

Yesterday before school I started my truck up, I had to unplug my block heater so I closed the door to keep the heat in. As I came up beside the truck the doors locked themselves. With my second set of keys being locked inside my house, I had to call Onstar to have them unlock it. Today, I started it up and while I was sitting inside, the doors locked themselves again.

I took it to an autobody shop because I am having an undercoat put on. I was telling the guy to make sure the keys werent left inside because of this. He told me that it is possible to change this so that the doors only lock when the truck goes into drive, rather than locking them while it is in park.

How can I set the truck so that the doors will only lock themselves when it goes into gear, rather than having the doors lock after a bit of time so that I never get locked out again?

Do you have the driver information center? You can change that type of thing through it. The manual will give you step-by-step instructions on how to change the settings.

Unfortunately I do not. :( That was something I was going to add on this summer. Can it be done without the DIC?

You may be able to access it through the radio. I know in the old trucks that's how it is done.

Alright, thanks for the help! Once I get the truck back, I'll give the manual a read through.

If keys are in the ignition, the drivers door will lock then unlock. My 2010 does anyway, keeps keys from being locked up in vehicle. Course my doors don't lock automatically either.
