door locks

mgratton,

I would prefer if my locks locked in Drive and unlocked in Park over what they do now. Very poor feature in the usability category in my opinion. And since I worked in a Human-Machine Interface (usability) job for 3 years I think I know a little something about it.

Yes, the Tacoma is a good truck but Toyota did drop the ball on some minor features that are common in many vehicles these days such as auto locks and automatic headlights.

08 Taco with factory keyless entry. HANG IN THERE WITH ME ON THIS ONE,,LOTS OF QUESTIONS OUT THERE THAT ABOUT DOOR LOCK/UNLOCK THAT I BELIEVE I MAY HAVE INFO TO CONTRIBUTE.

Door locks used to lock in Drive and unlock in Park. However, I unknowingly bumped the cover off a small device located under the dash near the hood release handle. With that condition (cover off) whenever the doors were closed a blue light on that device flashed. At this point I couldn't find the cover so while troubleshooting the blue flashing light annoyance, I found a small button on the device and pushed it. That didn't stop the light flashing but once I found and reinstalled the cover, the blue light stopped flashing, however I discovered my doors would remain unlocked regardless of being in Drive or Park AND I had to find instructions to reprogram my keyless entry FOBS as they would not lock/unlock the doors. Obviously, the device is a functioning component of the keyless entry AND a programming feature for auto door lock/unlock depending on transmission position. Pushing the button or other messing around I did with the device changed programming for my locks and keyless entry.

Anyone else had a similar situations we can piece together more clues and solutions !!!!
I liked the auto door lock in Drive and unlock in Park feature and would like to find out how to restore it.
