RE: Disable auto door locks
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.
