How do I disable the automatic door unlock?

Your car may have an automatic door unlock feature. With this feature, opening the driver’s door from the inside will automatically unlock all of the doors. This will only happen if your vehicle is in PARK (if you have an automatic transmission). To disable this feature, follow the instructions on your electronic vehicle information center (EVIC) system.
