2008 Compass Keyless Entry - Door unlock

I don't have EVIC. I would like for all four doors to unlock when I shut off the ignition and open the drivers door. Can I do this by on my own? Do I need to go to the dealer?

Thanks

dont think you can do it on your own. I didnt even know EVIC could do that (I dont have it either).

with auto locking it is kinda a pain to find the all doors locked when exiting. the wife and I are now in the habit of hitting the master unlock button when we get out, we dont even think about it any more.

Oh, forgot to say that you can do it in the "Personal Preferences" menu on the EVIC.

and that's why I didn't bring it up before. I was clarifying for those who do not have EVIC (CharBroiled and others) what is available in the programing if you do have it. Since that function is available with the EVIC then the scan tool may be able to emulate the EVIC and do the programing needed in the same way the eliminating the horn on locking works.

It tells you how to do it in your owners manual. I don't have the EVIC and all of my doors unlock at once.

The proceedure to enable/disable this feature on a non-EVIC compass can be found on pages 21 and 22 of the 2007 owners manual. I would expect it to be around the same area in the 2008 manual. I have set this on my compass and it does work.
