Doors locking trauma
The 2018 Kia Niro auto door locking is driving us crazy! Is this something they can and will disable completely at the dealer? I am a woman who uses a purse which I put in the back seat. I want to be able to turn off the car, get out, and open a back door without further action on my part. I understand people who live in a city, maybe especially women, want auto door locking, but I really do not need it. I am capable of locking the doors if I want to. SO, I found a setting that makes all the doors unlocked MOST of the time. However, most of the time is almost worse than never because I really dislike getting out of the car, closing the front door and discover I can't open the back door to get my purse. We cannot figure out what we do wrong when we discover the doors are not unlocked.
The settings we have is
Automatically lock - enable on shift
No disable option. I use shift because the locks are so loud that they scare me if I'm driving (I thought the car had decided to fall apart!), so I figure it's best to get it over with before I start driving.
Automatic Unlock - On Shift to P
Obviously this is not always working...
Or maybe the car is relocking? I read some cars like to do that. A scarey thought, seems to me, well, I guess not so scarey because I presume the car wouldn't do that if a key were in the car?
Are there aother settings that can be done by the dealer that I might like?
