How do I set the automatic door lock?

A: When the automatic door lock system is set,...

When the automatic door lock system is set, then the vehicle will automatically lock all of the doors when you exceed 15 MPH, and will automatically unlock all of the doors when you turn the car off. You can turn this feature on or off in a few steps: 1. Make sure all of the doors are closed. 2. Turn the ignition to ON. 3. Press and hold the Unlock button on the Power Lock switch. This step must be done within 20 seconds of step 2. 4. After about five seconds, the hazard indicator will flash. If it flashes twice, the feature has been turned on. If it flashes once, the system has been turned off. 5. Turn the vehicle off. If the vehicle is not turned off, the activation or deactivation will not take place.
