I have a 2011 Equinox LT1. I've been through the Owners Manual looking for a way to completely disable the auto door lock feature when shifting out of park.
I can't seem to find anything on it.

I see references to how many doors I want to unlock when shifting into park, etc. but not anything specific to totally disabling the feature.

Has anyone figured this out???

GM doesn't have a way to stop autolocks. Someone might have a hack that will.

You won't - 'auto door unlock' is for the application of shifting into Park (not shifting out of Park)[/color]

If I understand you correctly, your inquiry is on having the doors staying unlocked when shifting from Park to any other gear position? Is this right?
If so, this safety feature was implemented years ago, a vehicle will lock all power door locks upon shifting out of Park and after reaching the minimum speed perimeters set by the manufacturer. This is to add additional safety implimentation in the event of an accident by keeping the doors closed. The only way I know of to override this feature is to manually unlock the doors after shifting into gear. However, some vehicles will re-lock the doors after a certain time period has elasped while driving.
I haven't tried this myself on this particular vehicle yet, so perhaps someone can clarify.[/color]

Thanks for info. I guess I'll forget about it.

I had a 07 Edge previously and it a feature for disabling.

On our Terrain the doors auto lock, but you can pull the handle twice and the door opens. I believe the first pull unlocks it and then second opens it.

I'm not sure if this is still possible when travelling... but it is possible when stopped with your foot on the brake.
