Re: Looking for fuse to shut down automatic locks
If the locks actuate while driving, usually it's due to the door pin switches that need a slight adjustment. As you drive and go over bumps or turns the body or doors flex slightle and the switch sees the door as open then closed and tells the body computer to lock doors again. Check for the black pin switch on door post near door catch and with a small flat blade screwdriver, pull the center cap of the plunger out about 1/8 inch from the black push in part and close door which will adjust the plunger again to correct depth.

- Sit in the car with all the doors shut and windows up with your key fobs (all your fobs need to be done at the same time)
- With one of your keys turn the ignition on then off and remove the key
- Press and hold the unlock button and then press the lock button 3 times.
- Release all buttons and the locks will bounce up and down.
- Repeat this with the other key/keys (press and hold unlock and press lock 3 times, locks will bounce)
Typically on autolock cars, when you pull the door handle to open it opens without having to unlock it. The auto lock is a safety feature. Some cars will auto-unlock when you stop, but most wont, you have to hit the unlock button. If yours doesn't auto unlock, the only way to change it would to be to install a switch somewhere on the shift mechanism, it would take a while to do.
