hopefully one of you smart people on the site would be able to help me! Okay a couple times now since I bought my truck I have had it running and or just shut off with keys ignition and it's automatically just lock the doors on me very frustrating as I only have one set of keys I do have a key fob with it and the lock and unlock button both work the door panel lock and unlock button don't work I have to use the lock and unlock button on my key fob to unlock the door I think when the vehicle is shut off and after I've open and close my door I think then I can use the unlock button or know the lock button on my driver side I don't know it's very frustrating because the last time I was locked out of my truck but the keys inside I had to drive almost an hour to the dealership to get a new key cut which I guess is a good thing cuz he can't have too many of these keys I'm telling you LOL cuz you just never know when the trucks going to lock you out! Anyways the last time I got the steel rod through the seal on the door and I managed to press the unlock button with it the truck was shut off the keys were inside, and it did nothing. It was totally dead the unlock button was so useless it's not funny I don't even think I can pull the door handle maybe just when the trucks running though wait I'll check yeah no I'm right I just shut the truck off doors are all locked keys are in my hand I'm sitting here and I cannot even pull the door handle on the driver side to open my door??? Is this like that passive aggressive door lock thing or whatever I'm just confused or so many people that have issues with the Locking mechanisms or something please somebody please please help me !!  And hopefully you are able to make sense of my post here, this is me with technology talk and text LOL I guess I should proofread before I hit send but I never do I'm sorry anyways any questions just right back thank you, Angela

Go through the settings on the gauge cluster. The 4 buttons that allow you to look at different things with the gauge cluster screen. Go to the menu for the vehicle settings and look for lock. It might be set to key lock and unlock. Change it to gear or off.
