Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Does anyone know how to disengage the automatic door lock feature that locks the doors when moving 15mph on a 1999 Chevorlet 1500 silverado.
You have to take it into the dealership for a 1999. the dealer needs to change the settings in the BCM (body control module). in 2000, the BCM came preprogrammed to allow the owner to change the door lock settings at home. unfortunately for a 1999, it has to be done at the dealership.

Just cut that light blue wire at the brown plug. Nearest drivers door on brown plug. Wire you need is right beside a white wire, left side of this brown plug on BCM. Body Control Module. I put a simple switch in, on the dash. Cut the light blue wire off at a reasonable distance from BCM plug. (I UNPLUGGED THE BCM BROWN CONNECTOR FIRST) Ran a jumper wire from light blue to my switch. From switch, I ran a wire back into truck end of light blue wire.
How this works now: If I want to use power locks, I turn switch on, then press lock button on my door. If I want to use my keyless entry remote, I turn switch on before leaving truck, then use my keyless entry remote lock button. If I want to lock my doors while in the truck, I turn the switch on, and hit the lock button on the door.
PS... I installed my switch where fog light switch would have been if my truck had em. Just a tiny round on/off 12v switch.
