The main reason is convenience. If you pull down the driveway to the mailbox, pull away from the gas pumps to pay, or do any "tiny trip" driving, you must unlock the doors to get out. Do you think there might be a connection between the inability to cancel this feature and the rash of broken inside handles?? Maybe.WearyEagle said:I don't mean to be rude, but why would you want to do this ? :confused

I agree with you. I dont need my nanny with me everywhere I go. Its a nice feature, but there shoud be an option to overide it. There is no Park on the 6 speed. It may provide saftey in a bad neighborhood, but it might also impede someone trying to rescue you after an accident or in a fire. What ever the reasons, I like having the choice. We have enough laws lately impinging on our freedoms(Ie motorcycle helmets etc,etc) without general motors deciding whats good for us too. Sorry for the rant.frankmp said:.......I know it's probably in the manual and a search did'nt return anything; so how do you cancel the locks from automatically locking when you hit about 10km??
I assume you can...........
Gary, no apology necessary. I sure didn't mean to direct the responsibility comment your direction. But your post does mention the reason I DON'T want the vehicle to unlock the doors automatically when placed in PARK - potential safety issues. For instance, if I pull up to a convenience store I'm not familiar with, maybe I don't want the doors to unlock as soon as I put it in PARK. I am just egotistical enough to think that I am even MORE qualified than my ECU to decide when I want my doors locked or unlocked. I certainly understand the feature, just wish it had an "OFF" mode like my other GM vehicles. :thumbsWearyEagle said:
My doors lock automatically when I put my SSR in gear and unlock automatically when I put in park. What's inconvenient about that ?
Incidentally, as a matter of policy when I'm out and about in LA County at night, I lock my doors manually immediately upon entering my SSR. Vehicle anti-theft devices have gotten so good, that "amateur" car thieves have resorted to carjackings to get your vehicle and upon entering the vehicle before putting it in gear to back out of a parking spot (thereby locking the vehicle automatically) is the ideal carjacking situation. :mad
I apologize if you thought my earlier post implied that you were irresponsible. I intended to imply no such thing.
