My son's car is a 2015, my question is about the automatic door locks.
The car will lock the doors, after 15 mph, but the thing I'm questioning is when he stops.
He turns the ignition off and the doors remain locked.
He has to use the switch to unlock the doors.
Is there a way to change this?
If it matters he has the push button ignition.

Thank you
Bruce

There is a way to disable the auto locking feature, but it's model specific and will be in the owner's manual. I know this is the case for our 2016 Nissan Quest. It's a series of button pushing on the FOB and door buttons to change these settings. IMO, the sooner you disable it the better. Less cycling of the lock actuators makes them last longer.

Talked to the dealership and they said it's easier to just bring the car in and they will change things.

If you bring it in you will likely be charged. If you want to avoid the charge, talk to a certified nissan service tech on the phone or watch a YouTube tutorial. A lot of this stuff is just turning keys and pushing buttons a certain number of times within X seconds can be done quicker than going to the dealer, however if they agree not to charge you and you have extra time i would go for it.

Good luck.

My '16 Versa automatically unlocks the doors when the key is removed from the ignition switch.

The auto lock setting can be changed. I've seen the instructions for doing it on the Versa online. I don't recall exactly what you had to do but I do remember it being a simple process and definitely not worth paying a dealer $100-200 to do it for you.

When I bought my Versa it only came with one key. I wanted at least two keys. Most manufacturers get at least a couple hundred dollars for a key and programming it now. I ordered 2 blanks off of eBay for $13.29, took them to the local hardware where they cut them for $1.06 each including tax, then searched the internet on how to program them. Programming both keys took less than 5 minutes so I ended up with two extra keys for $16.41. Both keys work flawlessly.

Things aren't like they were 40 years ago where information wasn't easily available. With the introduction of the Internet you can find how to do nearly anything with just a few key strokes on the computer.
