Can't find how to change when the door locks activate

When I drive off, the door locks don't automatically lock until I've travelled about a 1/2 mile and/or about one minute in time. I looked through Settings but was unable to find a setting that allows me to change this to a shorter distance/time. Of course, I could press the Lock button on the armrest but I'd prefer it to happen automatically. Can this locking setting be changed?

Dan

Re: Can't find how to change when the door locks activate

According to your owners manual...

Automatic Door Locks — If Equipped

When enabled, the door locks will lock automatically when the vehicle’s speed exceeds 15 mph (24 km/h). The auto door lock feature can be enabled or disabled by your authorized dealer . Please see your authorized dealer for service.

Strange that it's not a user selectable feature. It is on my 14.

Well, I was hoping for a setting but thank you for the quick and accurate reply.

Re: Can't find how to change when the door locks activate

Talk to your dealer... maybe there's some programming magic they can do with it. Worst case, they tell you no.

Re: Can't find how to change when the door locks activate

I have gotten use to the locks activating as soon as I pressed the brake pedal on my 2001 F150 SVT Lightning (traded in on the JGC) and my wife's 2007 Murano.

Instead of taking it to a dealer, I'll just form the habit of doing it myself but thanks again.

Oops, I misspoke. My wife corrected me in that her Murano does not automatically lock its doors.

I could be wrong, but I thought there was an option to change this in settings somewhere???

I thought I did it on my early build '14 with some crazy bunch of button pushing on the key fob. I am sure I did it myself and did not bring it to the dealer.

He has a MY 13. According to the owners manual only the dealer can activate/deactivate the auto door lock feature. Don't know why it's set up that way.

On MY 14 and 15 that feature is user selectable through UConnect settings.

We had the same exact lighting problem (passenger side), we had only 39 miles on the JGC. It was covered by Jeep warranty, no questions asked.

A relay triggered by the brake, across the switch contacts. $5 and done... if you really want it.

Cheers,
Steve
