    Kids are 7 & 9 and still have the door safety on.

    I or my wife open the doors. We determine what side of the car is the safe side to exit from. The kids are not able to smack the door into something with a careless door fling. I like that the BMW swtich is recessed, because the kids are always changing the easily accessed lever on my wife's Pilot.

    Carsoft can turn this option on/off as well. Maybe cycling it with this program would work who knows.

    they are required by law to be belted into an approved car seat, at least the younger one.

    It's not a bad thing....just a pet peeve of mine

    I would rather choose when to lock the doors...I don't think it's necessary to have them locked all the time. I find it a nuisance when you have to do the double pull on the handle, if you forget to hit the unlock switch.

    For kid's safety, there is always the child locks on the doors.

    well i have a 3 year old and 1 year old

    i sorta appreciate the doors being locked while the car is moving.

    Why would you not want the doors to be locked? just wondering?

    Isn't ours a programmed response?

    At 15mph the doors lock. Seems like I could have had that changed while at the dealer. Did yours lose it's programming?

    Door Locking action when car starts in motion????

    For some reason when i replaced the battery in my RR the door locking action when car starts to move is now not activated. ANyone know the procedure that BMW uses to activate this? my RR has alot of the same BMW parts and i think ti would work if anyone knows the code or procedure to get it done.

    Thx
    Dan
