Is there a way to setup the power door locks so that they will automatically lock once the car gets moving? Its a 'feature' on most other vehicles I've owned but doesn't seem to be working on my '06 sedan.
+1 on the kptechnologies. as a side benefit with the door lock module, you can then roll the windows up with the remote. BTW, if you don't know, you can hold down the unlock button on the remote to roll down the windows.

+2 on KPTech. Had the module in mine, worked great. It is different then OEM auto locking on other cars though. On my Sol, the doors lock at about 5mph, but the KPT module locks after 6 seconds of having the ignition on. There is another module to add the mph feature.
I have a bit of a derail question. Why does anybody want their doors to lock automatically when they begin moving? That has to be the number one most annoying feature that has come to cars in the last 10 years. The number of F-bombs I've dropped when getting out of the front of my RX-330 and try to open the back door to get my daughter out only to have to reach for the keys, or the front door to unlock the doors is uncountable.
For some reason i was really disappointed when i found out that my G35x didn't come with that feature. Having seen this thread i will definitely get the auto lock module. How difficult would it be to self install that module. i am looking at the install guide and it looks made complicated.
