Question: How do I disable the auto-door-lock "feature"? I can't stand it. I need to let the wife and child out of the passenger side of the car before pulling into the garage, and none of us ever remembers to unlock, so we have to fumble in frustration.
The owner's manual talks about how to deactivate the automatic unlock function (though for the life of me, I can't of any reason why you'd want to do that), but it doesn't tell how to keep the system from auto-locking the doors when you reach 15 MPH.
There's gotta be a way...doesn't there?
Firstly, for the LEAF, when you turn the car off it auto-unlocks to let everyone out; just putting it into park isn't sufficient.redLEAF wrote:Forgive me but I didn't check this on my recent LEAF test drive; but don't the doors automatically unlock when you go back to park?

I have gotten used to this mode (had this same protocol programmed on my sports car to avoid car jacking), but the lack of backlighting on the unlock button IS a design flaw (building my list for a 3 month critical review of this car I have grown to just cherish).davewill wrote:Especially when he could just punch the unlock button on his armrest.Packet wrote:Turning off the car and then turning it back on would be a pain.
