    disable automatic power door locks?

    I want to disable my doors from locking automatically when I put my car in gear. Is there a fuse for this? (I tried pulling 2 different ones for power doors but nothing..)

    It's a major pita on the newer cars when you have to manually unlock the doors to leave the vehicle. At least with fords the doors automatically unlock when you pull the inside door handle. If I remember correctly there's no simple way to disable the auto locks without disabling the power locks altogether.

    I have looked into this as well, but to no avail. It is just a PITA when you have other people in the car that you are dropping off or something, and you always have to press unlock, and even when you put it into Park to get the mail or something, you have to press unlock. No big deal, but it adds up to be annoying.

    Exactly!!! Our van also has this feature and I've always hated it...

    My 88 doesn't do this. If I want to lock or unlock the doors I press the damn button. This was especially annoying today when I was starting and restarting my 95 (I think my starter is fine.. just a bad connection somewhere).

    My old 94 Grand Am had a fuse you could pull that would disable the auto locking. I haven't looked into disabling the locks on my Regal yet so I'm not sure if it's possible. I guess I'm just used to the auto locking/unlocking now (but whoever rides shotgun can never remember to wait until I shut the car off to get out of the car...)

    I know it's annoying at first, but you get used to it after a few weeks...

    Throw me a fricken wiring diagram here

    :P

    my '92 doesn't do it but I suspected that somehow in installing the locks I missed a wire and the feature never made it, but looking at my diagrams it doesn't look like '92 has it at all. At least not on the CS.

    I did the opposite, I added it to my 89 that didn't have it.
    But you can disable it easily. Just unplug the inline connector going to the chime box. You'll also lose your turn signal left on warning, but your 88 never had that either. I thought someone said there was a fuse for this in some cars, but I've never looked into it.

    No, 92 wouldn't have it. Auto locking was new in 93 (doesn't auto unlock) while auto lock and unlock came out in 94. Turn signal left on warning came out in 89.

    disable automatic power door locks?

    My boyfriend's car has different settings that can be switched to preference. He can disable them, have them lock but not unlock, have them only unlock, or have them do both. His car is a 97 Bonneville. Mine is a 93, and I removed my keyless to add my alarm, which locks & unlocks the doors. When I removed my keyless entry my driver side power lock wouldn't work at all until I rewired it. I would think there is a fuse it would be for the keyless entry system, and pulling it would have the same effect as me removing my box. The automatic door lock signal wire would be the best way to disable the locking. It is a light blue wire that runs into your chime module. It then runs to the keyless entry box in the back of the car under the rear dash. I got to mine pretty easily by removing my rear passenger side speaker and the plastic mounting thing that the speaker is mounted to. Then reach under the dash and feel around for a plastic box. Mine wasn't attched to my car so I could just pull it up thru the speaker hole. Then cut the Light Blue wire. I am pretty sure there was a wiring diagram on the box itself too. I would cut the wire from there instead of the chime module because I am not sure if anything else in the car uses the input from the wire at the chime module.
