    Sadly that cannot be done.You will have to push the lock button every time you want to lock/unlock.Dumb?Absolutely.

    Well, technically anything is possible, but easily? No.

    My guess is you'd need a microcontroller reading the voltage from the speedometer and the "key in" sensor, then power a relay to the door locks. Possible? Yes. Worth the trouble and voided warrantee modifying the electrical system? Highly unlikely.

    Why is that dumb? If I wanted a car that does everything for me I would have bought American.

    Lock / unlock as described isn't as easy as lock / unlock with motor on / off; that's relatively common and can be relayed.

    My '93 Toyota does this; relays. Auto all-window-up when motor goes off would also be neat to have.

    The lack of an auto lock feature honestly annoys me the more I think about it.
