Doors lock after moving but not unlocks when shopped

Hi, when i pass 15mph doors will lock for safety. But do they supposed to unlock when slowed down or stopped. Child or friend pushing hard doors when they want to get in because i forget to unlock doors. Is it normal doors will not unlock when stopped or car shut off ? Your jeep auto unlocking when stopped or car shut off ? Do i have to do manually unlock everytime? Is there anyway to disable auto lock feature?
Thank you

Gotta unlock manually. The auto lock feature can be disabled with a dealer grade scan tool, like the DRB3.

Bumping the button just feels like a reflex to me after all these years.

I drove cars for decades without "power bound to malfunction sooner or later door locks." Same for without "power bound to malfunction sooner or later windows". Power door locks failed within three years on a new 2006 Mercury Grand Marquis and a 2016 Chrysler Town and Country. On the Chrysler, I was unable to use the left rear door until the dealer had it for a day and a half to fix it. Someone on here had a right rear door which could not be opened. Hopefully, he has been able to fix it.

I use the power door locks as little as possible on both our cars. I got a key made so that I can unlock the Chrysler driver's door. I like that the Jeep has a key operated lock on the passenger door. I don't carry the remote. I see no reason to operate five electric locks, getting to their individual failure times more quickly when all I want to do is enter the driver's door. Or get out of the driver's door. I like that I can reach all four door locks from the driver's seat on the ZJ.

I do like the auto lock on driving feature these days. The one I liked best locked at 3 mph, as soon as I got rolling.

FWIW and YMMV.

What are the chances of finding an independent shop with the DRB3, or clone thereof? The dealer wanted about $60 for about six seconds with his 9001 rf detector to test the fob.

Some locksmiths have tools that can do the remote programming bit, newer high end autel/innova scanners can supposedly do it as well.

Really depends on your area.

I'm in Southern Maryland and the only place out here is the local dealer. I called around trying to get a new remote coded and nothing. I didn't want to spend $75 to code a $20 amazon remote.

Im somewhat old school like this but I wired in a chrysler 300 remote/receiver on my 94 ZJ. Its nice being able to unlock the drivers door only without unlocking all doors when Im not using them.

I've never liked any sort of automatic locks n such. Thankfully my 98 does not have that turned on.
