    Is there a way of stopping the car from locking all the doors when you are in motion and then stop to pick up a passenger

    I basically pick up my dad every night from work and when I pull over he can't open the doors and it's a case of either knocking the car off or having to stretch across to open door from the inside. It's a pain

    I assume there is an option to prevent this but I can't find it

    Since the B9 they removed the option to manually Disable automatic door locking. However you can enable it again with vcds/vcp/obd11. You will get the menu option back where you can disable it.

    Module 46
    Byte 35
    DISABLE bit 0 (standard is enabled)

    Then you will find the lock option under central locking menu.

    You only have to press driver side unlock button, not that much of a chore ;)

    I’m pretty sure I can deactivate this in the MMI? I’ll check tomorrow if I remember.

    I thought you could but can't find it in the manual - I may be thinking of my old A3...

    There is a button right next to you in the door panel that unlocks and locks the door ???

    I am sure my car has it in the mmi as well, but ours maybe earlier builds?

    It's possible? Mine is an early MY18 build, I don't know how that fits in with respect to the OP's?

    Mine is a my17 but in the manual I have dowloaded from the link at the top of this forum, dated 05 2016, there is no mention. I can check the one that came with the car however.

    Ok just looked at the mmi settings and indeed there isn't anyway of configuring this within the car settings. I think Pychoscot is correct in that there was a setting for this in my previous A3.

    As others have said you have a door unlock button next to you. If it’s not working on 1 push of the door unlock button, I’ll explain.

    If you have the setting - push unlock button on your keyfob to open only the drivers door you will need to push the unlock button on your drivers door twice in quick succession. I figured this out when i couldn’t unlock the car from inside the car.

    The setting to lock the car is for safety and convenience.

    Funny how when I had a focus many were moaning that the self lock didn't exist and ford's reason was for safety purposes. Of course then many were replying, 'well you only have to press a button to lock it', etc etc ect.
    Sheez, what did we do when we didn't have electric windows, life must have been not worth living ;-)

    And don't forget about having to manually wind the window down to reach out and adjust the door mirror! I can remember having an Opel Manta that had adjustable door mirrors, but having to reach across the car to adjust the passenger door mirror was most inconvenient:tearsofjoy:

    As for the unlocking the door when you pick someone up, I must say I don't find the push of one button on the door next to where my hand is on the steering wheel to be much of a chore. I certainly prefer it to the thought that some low life could yank a door open at the lights and make off with my case or phone!
