If you have the EVIC, it should be an option in there.

If not, the dealer can program that preference, along with a few others depending on how yours is equipped.

Yes - the manual just says it has the feature but no comment on how to turn it off. the key fob can change many other features but apparently not this one. I guess I will call the dealer and see if they know - probably not.

This thing drives me nucking futz.
The autolocking is one thing, but at least have an auto unlock when you put it in park so that everytime I get out to go around and get my daughter, the friggen thing is locked.

Normally a key is handy, but when I park in the garage I leave the key in the ignition.

Just give it time, you'll get used to it. I leave my keys in the ignition too. When you open the door, just get into the habit of hitting the unlock switch on the door when you get out. 95% of the time I remember to do it, the other 5% I curse myself.

Just think.... at least if you drive or park in shady areas the carjackers, serial killers, and kidnappers can't walk up and open your doors immediately.

However, we all have our pet peeves. I have already turned off the greatly annoying seatbelt reminder chime. A little reminding is fine, but often I'll drive 1/2 mile to my neighbors house, back and forth through the plant at work, etc. and I don't bother with my seat belt - that chime is sooooo loud.

Wow, the lengths some people will go to to be unsafe! Are you morbidly obese? I ask because I don't understand otherwise how it could be at all difficult to buckle your seatbelt. At least tell me you don't do this in front of any impressionable young people.

Depending on the situation, I will not put my seatbelt on.

Swapping my vehicles around so that I can drive the one I want to - and it is blocked in by the one I want to leave at home is one situation that seatbelts are not used. When I am hooking up one of my 4 trailers I don't bother with a seatbelt either.

I have disabled the bell on my YJ completely ... after changing the belts to something safer, the bell wouldn't quit chiming

There's some irony for ya.

To each his own on the seatbelt thing, however the only time I don't put mine on is if I'm staying in the driveway. There are too many bad drivers in the world, and I would feel like such a jerk if I were seriously injured while not wearing my seat belt.

Here are a few things you can try to disable the auto-lock features. These instructions aren’t listed within the Wrangler owner’s manual so I cannot guarantee they will work. It’s plausible that the EVIC system used in the Wrangler may be similar to those used in our other vehicles.

The Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) features a driver-interactive display. It is located in the lower left part of the cluster below the fuel and engine temperature gauge. Select "Personal Settings" from the EVIC menu (vehicle must be in park)

Lock Doors Automatically at 15 mph (24 km/h)
When ON is selected all doors lock automatically when the speed of the vehicle reaches 15 mph (24 km/h). Press and hold the EVIC button when in this display until “ON” or “OFF” appears to make your selection.

Auto Unlock On Exit
When ON is selected all the vehicle’s doors will unlock when the driver’s door is opened if the vehicle is stopped (manual transmissions) or the vehicle is stopped and the transmission is in P (Park) or N (Neutral) position (automatic transmissions). Press and hold the EVIC button when in this display until “ON” or “OFF” appears to make your selection.

Let me know if these work. If you would like I can post the remainder of the EVIC settings.

No matter what, we would like to see the rest of those instructions. Very informative.
