Default Corolla Doors Autolocking

I have a 2010 Toyota Corolla LE. When I start the car and put it into
gear, all the doors except the driver's lock automatically. Is there
some way to turn this feature off?

Did you buy the car new?

Then you have an owner's manual.

You may have to wipe off years of dust to realize what it is, and of
course you'll have to figure out how to take the shrinkwrap off.

You're so pleasant and polite.

I've already looked in the manual, and if it's possible to do it,
couldn't find where it said it. That's why I asked here.

I'm not sure how Toyota does this, but other automakers can use the
diagnostic port to go into the car's program and turn the feature off. You
have to call your local stealership OR hope that somebody here has found a
way to break into the programmable features with a magic handshake. My BMW
has a backdoor into the vehicle programming by holding some buttons pressed
while turning the ignition on, your question is if Toyota has the same
backdoor. Despite ANYTHING Shagnasty has to say, the Owner's Manual will not
address the issue you are asking about.

I changed my Camry's autolocking feature since I hate that "safety
feature". The owner's manual tells you how to do it. It involves
something like holding the lock button down on the driver's door then
turning on the ignition and watching the idiot lights on the dashboard
and pushing the switch for different options. Check the manual again.

Great. Thanks very much. I'll check the manual again.

Thanks. If what badgolferman suggests doesn't help, I'll have them
look into this the next time I get service.

If you're not sure how Toyota does this, then how are you sure the
owner's manual will not address the issue?

BZZZZT. Thanks for playing.

The 2009 Acura MDX allows the owner to set the specific behavior he
wants with this feature, no trip to the dealer or magic handshake or
plugging into the diagnostic port required.

Regardless, the owner's manual is the first place to start. He says he
started there, so good.
