1998 Plymouth Breeze. Anyone know how to disable the auto power lock feature on these cars? This is the most annoying "feature" I have ever encountered. The power locks auto lock as you reach a certain speed. There has to be a wire you can cut somewhere, or a fuse you can pull. Thanks in advance.

I am not sure, but look for a fuse in the fusebox Labelled "Auto Unlock". If there is such an animal, remove it and it will disable the auto lock, unlock feature which is very annoying.

In some vehicles, you actually have to program it out, and seeing as yours is a Multiplex system that Chrysler uses, you may not find a fuse. Check with your owners manual, and if all else fails, go to a Dealership and talk to them about it.

Let us know what you found out. :blink:

Already checked the fuse box for something like that to no avail. Glad some one else thinks it's annoying. I'll go through the owner's manual and see what I can find. Anyone else knows the secret, let me know.

Strut's and Stuff was right. Owner's manual revealed this can be disabled. Just turn the key switch from off to on 4 times, then hit the power lock button down. Same thing to re-enable it. Chrysler does have some good ideas. Thanks!

It's not only Chrysler who gives the car owner the option to manually disable the "Auto Lock" Feature which was originally designed for more Driver piece of mind, when it comes to safety, GM had that option from the beginning but most didn't know about it.

Most people that have this feature on their Vehicle, "Hate it", as it can be very annoying at times, that's why I was amazed when all the Chrysler Tech's on this sight didn't post the disabling sequence faster then you can rub two sticks together.

:blink: :) :unsure:
