Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla
I would like to lock my doors with the car running. I know that is a strange request but I often travel alone with my dog and especially in extreme weather need to be able to provide heat and a/c when I can't be in the car and she can't come with me.
I have tried removing the remote and locking the door with remote once I get out. I've tried pressing the lock button on the door as I'm getting out. But every time it unlocks itself.
This is a great feature if you don't want to lock yourself out but I need a way to override it. Any suggestions?
You can have the dealer to program the door locks for you using a feature called "customize" in the cars body ecu using theiur computer. They can be set it to lock or unlock when the car is put into Park, or lock/unlock when its put into Drive, and some other functions. They can adjust these setting in you car usually by using their computer, but a very few cars have info in the owners manual, that shows a sequence of door lock operations that will change these settings. You can check the owner's manual in the door lock section, but if that doesnt have the info (most likely it wont) have the dealer customize it to suit your needs.
