Can I disable the autolock?

That's the most annoying feature of my truck. I'm constantly getting out of my truck, maybe going to the bed, then having to go to the passenger side to get something out, only to find the door is locked. Then I have to go back to the driver's side and hit the unlock button. If I want to lock the doors when I take off, I'll lock them myself! Is there any way to disable this?

Yes you can, i did mine and it is really nice.
Your owners manual has a section in it with step by step instructions on how to do it. I can't remember the page number or section but look under door locks maybe.
Theres also a writeup on here somewhere posted with instructions...i'll see if i can find it.

There should be something in your manual about disabling the autodoor lock. I prefer to have mine locked because theres a lot of weird people in this world.

It's all in the manual. Why don't you keep autolock ENABLED, and ENABLE autounlock since you say you like to get in and out of your truck? I don't think you would get out of your truck while it's moving, so enabling autounlock makes sense. :-)

Same here. I had looked in my owner's manual about disabling the autolock, but I guess I didn't look hard enough.

Models prior to '08 shouldn't be any different. It's too expensive for Ford to vary features from model to model and year to year. It's on page 146 of my '08 F250 manual (and should be pretty close to the same page for other manuals). Anywho, find the section that talks about autolock, and the autounlock procedure should be following it.

I've come from years of owning nothing but Nissans. And their procedures to do simple things like programming the remotes/etc are not published in their manuals (they want you to go to the dealership and pay to have it done). I was surprised to see that Ford tells you how to do EVERYTHING you could possibly need/want to do! :-)
