Unlocks using any code or just the unlock button

I installed and program this lock about 3 months ago. i thought it was done correctly but when i accidentally hit the unlock button before typing the code it unlocked. I then typed in various incorrect codes and it unlocked to those as well. I have tried to reprogram several times but with the same outcome. What am I doing wrong/ any suggestions? Thanks

SOURCE: Lock works in reverse

You need to set the door direction jumper pins inside the unit. From LH to RH or vice versa depending upon your door.

SOURCE: My lock works backwards. Hit the lock and it

I'm assuming you are dealing with the Powerbolt, since you didn't mention the model of lock you have. This problem is probably because the "handedness" of the door is set opposite of your installation. That is, you may have what is called a "right-hand door" and the lock is set for a left-hand door, or vice versa. In other words, what side the door hinges are on and which way it therefore swings open.The Kwikset lock has an internal jumper which needs to be moved to another position to change the function.

Cut and paste this link into your browser, the scroll down to Step 11:

Step 11 says:

11. Door handing: I have installed your Powerbolt, but when I push the Lock Button, it unlocks? What should I do?
First remove the cover on the inside of the Powerbolt unit. On the right hand side under the batteries, you will notice that is says "Door Direction Jumper". If the cap is mounted on Prongs 1 & 2, carefully remove it and move it over so that it mounts Prongs 2 & 3. A is right handed, B is left handed.

This link will illustrate how to remove the cover to change the jumper:

Let's review the programming steps, in case you are overlooking something. This information was found at this link:
http://s7d5.scene7.com/is/content/BDHHI/kwikset-smartcode

Important before proceeding: 1. Verify that position #2 of the "Settings
Switch" is in the OFF position. (Refer to section 11.) 2. Work with the
door open (away from jamb) to avoid accidental lock out. 3. Make sure
the bolt of latch is in the extended (locked) position

8. Automatic - Bolt Direction Determination (Door Handing).
IMPORTANT: DO NOT SKIP THE FOLLOWING STEP.
LOCK WILL NOT BE ABLE TO OPERATE PROPERLY!
? In the steps below, the SmartCode mechanism automatically determines the "door handing" and sets the proper direction for motor to rotate.

a. Press and hold the "LOCK" button on the exterior keypad, while fully inserting the battery pack into the interior assembly (the tabs on the pack must face out)

b. When the unit begins to operate the bolt, release the "LOCK" button.

c. Do not disturb the unit for approximately 20 seconds until the interior Green LED flashes followed by a beep. During this time the system will drive the bolt several times, will determine "door handing", store data in memory and exit. It is very important that this process is allowed to finish properly.

Proceed with programming your Usercodes per the instructions.

Finally, here is the contact number for Customer Service At Kwikset. Call them if you still have the problem.

1-800-677-5625

Good luck!

SOURCE: to unlock the bolt no code is needed... just by

You need to reset the lock, so it will be set to the correct handing (left or right hand door).

Open the door and extend the lock bolt. Remove the battery. Press the reset button three times and wait 20 seconds. Push and hold the lock button, while inserting the batteries. Hold the lock button until the bolt starts to move. Allow the lock to complete it's learning cycle.

Program a new code and test.
