Can you please tell me how to disable the automatic door lock feature on my 1995 Mercury Cougar XR7 (V8). It locks the doors when you turn on the car....this has lead to several instances of locking myself out of the car with it running.

If you start it in neutral, the auto locks don't auto lock. As an mechanic, I start in neutral out of habit because it technically reduces wear by avoiding going through reverse.shift out of park while in acc to nuetral and start
does this help? look in owners manual for how to turn "on or off" the auto lock feature.
Automatic Door Lock/Unlock
The automatic door unlock function is a vehicle personalization feature with the following 3?programmable modes of operation:
All: All of the doors will automatically unlock.
Driver: The driver's door will automatically unlock.
None: The doors will need to be unlocked by a door switch command or by pressing the the lock button on the RKE transmitter.
The All or Driver modes may also be programmed as to when the automatic door unlocking will occur.
Key Off: The door(s) will unlock when the key is turned off.
Shift to Park: The door(s) will unlock when the vehicle is shifted into P (Park).
The delay lock function may be enabled or disabled. When the function has been disabled, the doors will only lock by a door switch command or by pressing the the lock button on the RKE transmitter. When enabled, the doors will not lock until five seconds after the last door is closed.
Hi there I had a similar problem on a 98' ford explorer and replaced the door lock actuator and solved the problem in one shot. If you never worked in cars well it will be a little tricky but if you have little experience well then you have to remove the door panels carefully to avoid damaging any plastic hold screws, once removed try to aceess the door lock from the panel to get it open since it is easier to work. Now with the door open and window up then remove the mounting brackets of the window in order to get to the lock actuator. It is hold by two only one screw just remove the wire hook up and remove actuator. install new one and put everything back good luck..
Not an easy fix! The door lock function was designed to lock doors only. you can however, disable this lock feature by simply cutting the light blue automatic door lock signal wire on the 6-wire harness plug connector located on the chime module (In component center).
