Default Door Locks No Longer Lock In Drive

I didn't find anything in the searches on this issue. What's a possible cause of this ? The doors stopped auto locking on my Mom's 2003. I'm going to sell it for her soon and wanted to fix the problem before I do. I believe mine lock in drive but her's did after so fast or how ever that worked. This has been going on for about 7 years. Thanks for any advise.

Default Re: Door Locks No Longer Lock In Drive

Tried to disconnect the driver's door lock switch to isolate it from the automatic locking feature controlled by the body control module? If this doesn't help and nothing else is causing problems with manually locking/unlocking or using the remote to lock/unlock doors, it shouldn't be deal breaker when selling it.

On my 2003 Saturn L300 the doors lock automatically when shifting out of Park into any gears.

It may just need the "personalization feature" of the door locks reset. Try this....


The programmable unlocking feature can be
programmed on or off by turning the ignition key to RUN
and pressing the unlock power door lock switch for
eight seconds. The horn will chirp once when this
feature is on and will chirp twice when it is off.
