How do I turn off the auto door lock?

The auto door lock feature automatically locks all of your doors, either when you shift out of P, or when you eclipse 10 mph. You can turn off this feature, in which case the doors will only lock when you lock them. To manually turn off auto door lock, follow these steps: 1. Engage the parking brake. 2. Make sure that the shift lever is in P. 3. Open the driver’s door. 4. Turn the ignition to On. 5. Press the lock button on the master door lock switch (located on the driver’s door), and hold until you hear one click. This should take at least five seconds. 6. Turn the ignition to ACC. This step will need to be done within 20 seconds of step 5.
