Default Door locks - Auto lock when moving?

So this is probably one of the biggest issues I have with my 04 WRX.
I really wish the car would LOCK all 4 doors when you either put the car in gear or move over 10mph like most newer cars.

So my question is, does anyone know of a module or something that would allow the doors to do this?

I was thinking possibly an aftermarket alarm system might have this feature but I don't know if I want to step in to an alarm right know.

Any info is appreciated.

P.S. I searched, came up with zilch.

This unit will do it. I fitted one for the RFID function, but it will lock the doors when ignition is turned on. Not quite what you wanted but close.

If you want the doors to lock when you putt the car into gear then you are going to have to get an aftermarket alarm/keyless entry system, as far as I know there is no way to make this function happen from your factory keyless system.

There are several different systems, but they are all aftermarket-alarm based. DEI units have "ignition controlled locks" that when you engage the key in the ignition, they lock the doors, and unlock after you have shut the car off.

I have a Scytek unit that will lock the doors when the RPM becomes 2 or 3 times greater than the idle RPM, and will unlock when the car is shut off.

Either of these systems can be had for anywhere from 75-150 dollars depending on features. (Alarm, Remote start, 2-way, etc)

I guess I might have to bite the bullet and do an alarm if I really want this feature. I just really hoped there was something out there that would allow it without it being an alarm or needing any type of remote fob.

You guys with the alarms, is your stock alarm still in place you just no longer arm/disarm with the factory remote?

I believe this unit should do what is called ignition controlled lock/unlock, meaning when it sees power on the ignition, after 3 seconds it locks all doors, and when you turn the ign off it unlocks all doors... if that's what you're going for, plus it's just keyless, not security or anything like that, most basic unit you can probably get, sure you can find it cheaper than what it's listed for.

Most units sold these days (at least the DEI ones) have wires for factory alarm arm and disarm. Although on some vehicles it's only with the factory FOBs that the factory alarm arms... kinda depends on vehicle...

Get me some vehicle info and what you plan to do and I can look it up at work..

Even the craptastic '97 Dodge Stratus I used to own had this feature. And yes, it's a safety feature. For all those who say the poster is lazy, you're just as lazy for allowing your daytime running lights to automatically engage.

Honestly I would like to stay away from Viper units. I'm not sure of the quality of them now but some odd years ago I have a couple of their systems and I was not impressed at all. My car is a 2004 WRX with factory alarm.

I'll have to look it up tomorrow sometime... I'll let ya know what I find..

Just so you know... there is a 95% - 99% chance you'll buy a unit made by exactly the same company, just with a different brand name on it.... A majority of remote starts/keyless entry and what not units are made by a company known as Directed Electronics (DEI). DEI has brand names such as... Viper, Python, Avital, Clifford, Hornet, and Astroflex, just to name a few... I find it a rare ocasion that a remote start or what not doesn't work b/c of manufacturers defects... usually units don't work properly because of poor or improper installation...

I was not aware that DEI made all of those. So you think Viper units are decent then? Each viper that I had was previously installed by whomever I purchased the car from, I never actually had one installed. I could do it myself probably in a day or so if I had a correct wiring diagram for the car. I would prefer installing myself so I could take time to hide the unit and wrap all the wires etc.

Like any product, it's only as good as the install. Viper is as good as anything else, because it's DEI. I'm not a big fan of some of the Viper and Clifford stuff because it has more features than the average person will ever use, and thus complicates things, but that aside the product alone is typically sound.

The biggest plus, in my opinion, to DEI and more-so its dealers is that the dealer support is unsurpassed. If the dealer and installer are legit vendors for DEI, they have unparalleled support if any questions or issues arise, and that is nothing but a plus. You do pay a little more for the DEI products in many cases when buying legit, but for the most part you get what you pay for.

I agree with you 100%, I don't like anyone touching my car for any reason... mechanical or electrical.... Really glad my family has mechanics, and I'm a certified installer. Comes in handy when I want to work on my own car, or be hands on... I hate repair shops and dealerships when I can actually be with my car watching every move the person working on my car is doing... I don't like half assed work or people who brake **** and then don't fess up to it....

This is very true... there are quite a lot of features on the units, when I start describing them to customers some of them are just "wowed" by these extra things that the little description card didn't tell them about the unit... Then again you get people who assume it'll do all this and then some when they buy the cheapest unit... only to be told they are severely wrong...

You are right on the money for support as well.... directtechs.com.... greatest dealer wiring guide ever, tech tips, techbay, RF car starting, etc!!! Even better now that they acquired the Canadian company Astroflex a couple months back... if you're an installer, and you've figured out what's changed on the site since they've aquired that company then you'll know what I'm talking about.... DEI is the ****... and if they don't own it... they usually end up owning it later....
