Default What am I doing wrong? 2008 Honda Accord Coup?

So I have a '08 Honda Accord that I picked up last Thursday, and I can't seem to figure out how to work the auto door locks! I've read the book and the little quick book that came with the car. Right now the doors lock when I hit 9 mph, I would like to change it so they lock when I move the car out of park. Also, right now the drivers door unlocks when I put the car in park. I want to turn off the auto-unlock feature all together. Is there some special trick I'm missing? I've done what the book says to do about 6 times and still it hasn't changed anything. I'm frustrated.

Well you can just lock the car doors when you get in. I'm not sure what the manual says, but I didn't think you could change when the car automatically looks/unlocks.

first turn on the car, then open the hood and find the fuse box, tap it 3 times and yell autounlock off, and that should do it.

Yeah. North American Car of the Year.
That means diddly-squat.
American Auto manufacturers know how to make mean muscle cars. That's about it.

Stay with your Accord; you'll get great fuel economy and pretty good luxury items, depending on what trim you have.

As for the door locks... does it really matter if they lock earlier or later or what not? For all the effort it seems you're putting into finding out how to change that feature, it would simply be easier to depress the lock button on your door while you drive (perhaps even before you hit 9mph!). Or, if you don't like it engaging, you can unlock the doors whilst you drive, so your passengers may execute moving-car-exits. But, it's always better to waste time online than just dealing with an incredibly minor problem.
