That feature is owner programmable. You'll find that option in the EVIC Personal Settings area.

From the owners manual...
Auto Unlock Doors​
When this feature is selected, all doors will unlock when
the vehicle is stopped and the transmission is in the
PARK or NEUTRAL position and the driver’s door is
opened. To make your selection, press and release the​
SELECT button until a check-mark appears next to the
feature showing the system has been activated, or the
check-mark is removed showing the system has been​
deactivated.

Electronic Vehicle Information Center
It's the information screen in the center of the dash. It is controlled by the buttons on the left side of the steering wheel.

I recommend you sit and read your owners manual. Lots of good information in there.

I figured it out, thanks.

My Durango manual is very basic.

Toyota's have a feature to customize the door lock settings at the ACC ignition position. Lock when shifting into gear, unlock when shifting into park, take no action, exc... I had trouble customizing it so I had my dealer mechanic set it. He pluged in his toughbook and showed me the screen for the options available. It was set easily. I was hoping dodge has someting similar.

Dodge puts all the user programmable stuff in the EVIC. No need to take it to a dealer for most of it. Some things have to be set by the dealer though.

I read a story about some law enforcement folks in Mexico being pursued in an armored Toyota, by drug gangs. Once cornered, the police put their car (a Toyota!) in park. The bullets couldn't penetrate the specially armored car, but once that really smart Toyota system unlocked all the doors, all the agents were killed. :eek:
