Default Disable auto door locks

Hey everyone. Is there a way to disable the auto door lock feature when you put the car in Drive and Park for 2002 through 2005 tahoes.
Also the doors will automatically lock after a few seconds once I start driving, can this be disabled? Thanks.

Have you checked the DIC (Driver Info Center) for a disable option? I know there are several options but not sure if "disable" is one.

I work at a delaership and I don't know of anything to disable it, it's a safety thing. You can only set the lock between drive or over 8mph, and the unlock can be park, key off, or disabled

Hi viperjuice,

I work for a taxi company. Our cabs are mostly 1990-1994 series Nissan minivans.

The owner has one '06 Chevrolet Ventura, which was supposed to be the first of several replacements. It's for sale, and he just bought another used Nissan to keep us running until we find a suitable fleet replacement. There are other problems I won't mention here, but the auto-locking doors were the last straw. When driving the Ventura I have taken to joking about it, telling my customers that there is an exit fee. Seriously. People don't go looking for the door lock when they want to get out of a taxi. It's the stupidest bloody thing I've ever seen. This baby has very very low mileage for a two year old taxi -- the drivers all avoid it like the plague. When every other taxi in the yard is in service or in the shop, some poor wretch gets stuck with the Ventura. We've been hoping for a quick sale.

Tell us please how to make it unlock in Park instead of when it is turned off and we might keep it a while longer. Park I can handle -- it is unsafe to load and unload passengers in Drive. It is very new, and carries more passengers than the old ones.

Prior to model year 2005 (2004 and older) all GM SUV's and trucks have the ability to dissable the AUTO DOOR LOCK feature in the Driver Information Center (DIC) by selecting "Doors Lock Manually".
if your vehicle does not have the selectable buttons for the DIC then you can have the dealer reprogram the BCM referencing GM Document ID # 2017017

Thanks mate.

We got it in '06 but apparently it isn't. I'll figure it out when it comes back out of the shop. It got parked in someone's living room last night. Might be back in a couple weeks.

Bloody hard to find good drivers these days.
