This is from my 2003 manual:

Deactivating/activating the autolock feature
Before following the procedure, make sure that the ignition is OFF and
all vehicle doors are closed.
You must complete steps 1-7 within 30 seconds or the procedure will
have to be repeated. If the procedure needs to be repeated, you must
wait 30 seconds.
1. Turn the ignition key to ON.
2. Press the power door unlock control three times.
3. Turn the ignition key from ON to OFF.
4. Press the power door unlock control three times.
5. Turn the ignition back to ON. The horn will chirp.
6. Press the unlock control, then press the lock control. The horn will
chirp once if autolock was deactivated or twice (one short and one long
chirp) if autolock was activated. Note: Pressing the power door
lock/unlock control again will toggle between activating and deactivating
the autolock feature.
7. Turn the ignition to OFF. The horn will chirp once to confirm the
procedure is complete.

On the message center pushbuttons, press SETUP 3 times. Press RESET to scroll between autolock on and autolock off.

Let me make sure we're talking about the same thing, I kinda jumped in with a different question. I have a turbo saver which keeps the motor running until the turbo cools off then the motor will cut off, after you turn the key off and put it in your pocket. If I lock the doors, they automatically unlock because the motor is still running. I realise it's a safety feature, but I want to be able to lock the doors and have them stay locked.

BTW, if someone were to get in and try to drive away, when they put their foot on the brake to put it in drive, it cuts off.

Yes, as long as the motor is running, it unlocks automatically. Kind of defeats the purpose...

OK I gotcha I didnt understand what you wanted to do. Thats odd that yours does that. Mine, with the engine running, when I press the auto locks my drivers side door will almost immediately unlock again. BUT, when I press it manually it stays down. Then I just use the keypad on the door to get back in. Have you tried disabling the dinger? That might help, but who knows? It's a quick fix and worth a shot anyway!

When you get out and it is still running, have you tried pressing the 7/8 and 9/0 button on the outside keypad? If it still unlocks by doing that it is not a Ford problem, it sounds to me the person who put in the turbo saver has it wired up that way, you might need to get in touch with them and have them change the setting. I had a similar problem with my remote starter and they had to change the setting to make it work correctly.
