Auto door locking

I've had my WK CRD (in the UK) for 6 months now, and I couldnt see any way of enabling the "lock all doors when driving off" setting, despite it being mentioned in the manual.

I took it to Jeep recently for other work, and mentioned it to them - they said that they could do it, but I couldnt. So they did it.

Took it in again recently for some other work - door locks now dont lock automatically

Can anyone confirm whether it is something I can do myself, or does it have to go back to the dealer?

TIA

Re: Auto door locking

Re: Auto door locking

^X2 - Use the EVIC to turn on/off

MENU Button
Press and release the MENU button and the mode displayed will change between Trip
Functions, Personal Settings, and System Status.


FUNCTION SELECT Button
Press the FUNCTION SELECT button to select the displayed function YES (Y) or NO (N).

SCROLL Button
Press the SCROLL button to scroll through Trip Functions, Personal Settings (Customer-Programmable Features), and System Status Messages.

Personal Settings - Auto Door Locks
When YES (Y) is selected, all of the doors will lock automatically when the vehicle reaches a speed of
15 mph (24 km/h). To make your selection, press and release the FUNCTION SELECT button until YES (Y) or
NO (N) appears.

Re: Auto door locking

Based on two posters having issues with this and both being non-U.S. units, maybe this is not a function they can change manually??

As other U.S. owners have stated, I can change this function myself thru the EVIC
