I recently purchased a 2007 Altima 3.5sl and am wondering why as the car begins to move the doors do not lock? Is there a setting I need to adjust? Or is this even an option? When I asked the dealer, they told me to read the manual. After reading it 4 times, I cannot find it. Thanks

REPLACE YOUR DRIVER SIDE DOOR LOCK MOTOR BEFORE YOU REPLACE IT DISCONECT IT FROM ELECTRICAL CONECTOR TRY LOCKING CAR IF IT WORKS THEN REPLACE THE LOCKING MOTOR LET ME KNOW MABY I CAN HELP IF YOU NEED ME TWO OK
sounds like the actuator in the door that locks and unlocks the door is jammed or too weak to move the lock assembly to fully lock/unlock positions. the linkage may be in a bind that can cause the same problem.
Only in the movies, I'm afraid. Does one key do everything on this car? I believe it does. If so, remove the lock from the glove box, if it has one, and take it to a locksmith to make you a key. Any easily removable lock cylinder on the car will do also, such as the trunk lock.
Probably has a spring that opens the door. My is the same but no spring I just have to push on the opposite side of the door and it opens. Doesn't affect the lock but I would try removing the spring that will stop it from opening. Hope this helps?
I consulted a Nissan master technician on this one, the Altima does not have auto locks, other owners have posted your same question as well and the experts answer is the Altima not equipped with this feature.
Regarding the rear door child locks: There is a small lever on the latch side of the door, you can only see it with the door open. Move it to the other position.
Regarding the front door locks: You either have a bad door lock switch, or the power lock solenoids are beginning to fail. To check this, you will need to pull the door panels off, & measure the actual voltage at the solenoids whilst manipulating the lock switch. If you have 12 + VDC, I would suggest replacing the door lock solenoids. Not hard to change, but it IS time consuming. Best left to a dealer. Expect to pay 1 hour per side to change each solenoid.
Our '97 Jetta locking is similar. One back door does not go down with the driver's door key double turn. We push it down manually before locking the rest with the key. I believe electrical lock actuator is gone on that door. Down the repair list. I have had door panels off on the car fixing electric window regulator. There is quite an expensive plastic sheet glued on to inside of door for sound proofing. Real hard not to tear. I bought new one from the dealer. Also little plastic clips around the door panel perimeter were brittle and about 50% broke, but not so expensive.
