Automatic lock and unlock feature: a short tutorial

November 9th, 2009 by

Did you know you can program your car doors to lock automatically when you shift out of park? This works for all Hondas with automatic transmissions built after 2006. Here’s how you activate the feature:

  • Apply the parking brake.
  • Move the shift lever to P and close the driver’s door.
  • Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  • Push and hold the front of the master door lock switch on the driver’s door. You will hear a click. Keep holding the switch until you hear another click (after about 5 seconds).
  • Release the switch and turn the ignition switch to the LOCK (0) position within 5 seconds.

You can also program your doors to unlock automatically when you shift into park. Here’s how:

  • Apply the parking brake.
  • Move the shift lever to P, and close the driver’s door.
  • Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  • Push and hold the rear of the master door lock switch on the driver’s door. You will hear a click. Continue holding until you hear two or more clicks (after about 10 seconds).
  • Release the switch and turn the ignition switch to the LOCK (0) position within 5 seconds.

Please consult your Technology Reference Guide and/or Owner’s Manual for instructions on how to change the feature settings. Or, give us a call at (888) 651-3388. We’d be happy to walk you through the process!
