    anyone know how/if this feature can be turned off ?

    I find it annoying and I want to be able to get in should an accident occur

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thanks

    From the owners manual for the Challenger...

    The auto door lock feature default condition is enabled.
    When enabled, the door locks will lock automatically
    when the vehicle’s speed exceeds 15 mph (24 km/h). The
    auto door lock feature can be enabled or disabled by your
    authorized dealer or through the Uconnect Settings in
    your radio.

    from owner's manual:

    Enhanced Accident Response System
    In the event of an impact, if the communication network remains intact, and the power remains intact, depending on the nature of the event, the ORC will determine whether to have the Enhanced Accident Response System perform the following functions:

    • Cut off fuel to the engine.

    • Flash hazard lights as long as the battery has power or until the ignition switch is turned to the “OFF” position.

    • Turn on the interior lights, which remain on as long as the battery has power or until the ignition switch is turned to the “OFF” position.

    • Unlock the doors automatically.

    I simply cannot find a way to disable this feature in the uconnect settings.

    I guess I will have to live with it . . . . .

    PS - System has latest firmware

    There has never been a report of anyone being locked in their car due to an accident in the history of these cars (2005-present).

    I've also never heard of it happening on any other brand of car either.

    There are innumerable accounts however of people who've been saved from a likely carjacking or robbery thanks to the system.

    I've had this feature since 1995 with my Dodge Interpid. 20 Years and no issues.
