This is the procedure for enabling or disabling the "Auto Lock" option on 1997-up power lock equipped Dakotas and Durangos.

  1. Enter vehicle and close door
  2. Fasten seatbelt (prevents chiming which could interfere with procedure)
  3. Insert key, and turn ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON (do not turn the key to START)
  4. Press DRIVER's lock switch to LOCK
  5. You will hear one chime to confirm the option has been toggled
  6. Wait 30 seconds
  7. Turn key off

Repeat the procedure to re-enable.

**Note: For 2004+ Durango and 2005+ Dakota, you can also separately program the system to automatically unlock the doors when the shift lever is moved to PARK. The procedure is identical, but you press UNLOCK in step 4 to toggle this option.
