Anne: My '06 Libby does the same thing. I think this is just something it does. I think others have complained and suggested for improvement that the doors unlock upon exiting. If anyone knows how to correct this, please advise. Undoubtedly so, I do believe it is the way it is.

It's because locking the doors when it gets up to speed is a safety feature.

Unlocking the doors when putting it into Park is not a safety feature (and is arguably unsafe, in fact).

I know you can reprogram the BCM to turn off the auto-lock feature, but I'm not sure if an auto-unlock feature even exists.

Just out of curiousity, why do you want it?

I can change all that in my Evic so if you dont have that, a dealer would prolly have to do it.

Hi
This you can have auto door unlock can be turned on so it unlocks all the doors when you open a front door.

Do you really want your doors to unlock every time you stop and put Jeep in park? I wouldn't.

I know how to lock/unlock my doors and want the choice....

These type of "Big brother knows best" nags really get under my skin.

This should be an option to change by the owner without having to explain oneself at the dealer.

Hi
Yes it's a dealer set option in the BCM. So sorry you have to go get the dealer to turn it on.

Hi
I must apologise I went to check today this is not an option on a 2002 vehicle. Sorry getting confused with newer vehicles. Guess you just have to press the unlock button on the door when you get out or have the rolling auto door locks turn off.
