Default 2010 Jetta SW TDI Auto Door Lock disable

Ok... I posted this mixed in with some other questions about 2 weeks ago and never got an answer.. maybe someone knows if I ask this question alone in a thread.

How do I disable the speed sensitive door locking annoyance? I know Ford, Chevy and all the other guys have hidden options to disable it.. and man I hope VW does also.

I was almost ready to disable the whole system until I found a fix when I realized I don't even have manual door locks in the thing. Its automatic or nothing.

Not only do they not let people decide when to lock their own doors, the other 3 doors remain locked when the door handle is pulled. I'm regularly walking off and leaving the kids locked in the back of the car. That ticks me off beyond belief every time it locks them and I'm just about ready to just disable the auto lock system anyway and just leave it unlocked all the time.

PLEASE help me. Its the only thing I don't like about my VW but its driving me insane.

Wow.. I didn't know it would be this hard to get the door locks to only work with the user controls.

Is there ANY way I can defeat the system like by disabling the speed sensing where the computer never gets the inforamation necessary to trigger the door lock?

ANYTHING?

Default I'm with you! Bloody annoying locks

What is it with cars built to NA specs, this paranoia with locking all the doors as soon as the car starts to move? Are they worried about muggings? What about trying to get someone out of a car after an accident if they are unconscous. Likely happens a hell of a lot more than a mugging!

I would like to be able to defeat this on my 2009 Jetta TDI Wagon as well. On my 2008 Passat it is done from the information panel and discussed in the owners manual. Even my lump of a 2006 Dodge Caravan had instructions how to disable this stupid feature with a combination of key turns and lock activations. There must be some way without VAGCOM

haven't dealt with this on a VW yet, but on an uncle's jaguar this worked.

Turn on the ignition so all the dash lights come on but don't start the engine.

Lock the door using the button on the door handle and then unlock the door (but don't open it) 3 times.

Turn off the ignition.

Lock the door using the button on the door handle and then unlock the door (but don't open it) 3 times.

Turn on the ignition but dont start the engine - you should be able to hear a beep.

Lock the door again as before then unlock it (only once this time) - a final beep should be heard.

If all goes according to plan your doors should now auto lock when you go over a certain speed (about 5-10mph). This will also auto lock the doors if you reverse away. This mod will be operational until you repeat the above steps to switch it off. It will only work once for each time the car is started though. In other words, if you unlock the doors to let someone out without turning the engine off, they will not automatically lock when you move away again.

My caravan used to this, but I thought it was the coolest part of owning a Dodge.

This system requires the ECU polling the speed sensor data and then activating the alarm\locking system -So I'm gonna guess that to turn it off you would have to do one of 3 things

1)turn off speed sensor -do not do!!!
2)adjust programming on ECU -sounds difficult
3)remove whatever wire initiates the command to engage the locks -bingo!!

but you have 2010 so ??????????????

With my 2006 Caravan the procedure was just like the Jag described above. It was right in the manual. I guess the Germans think we are so stupid they have to protect us from ourselves. Actually we probably are since I think this is a regulation in the US which is why all N American versions of alll cars have it. Damned if I can figure the logic as I said in my earlier post.
