Steps to set Auto-Unlock modes on.

The auto-door unlocking feature has two or three possible settings, depending on transmission.

These modes are:
  • Door unlocks whenever you turn the ignition to LOCK (0) position.
  • On Automatic transmissions, the driver's door unlocks when you move the shift lever to the PARK (P) position.
  • The auto-lock is deactivated all the time (factory default.)

3) Set the parking brake.
4) Push and hold the brake pedal, then move the shift lever out of PARK (P).
5) Push and hold the rear of the master door lock switch on the driver's door. You will hear a clicking sound, and after about 5 seconds, you will hear another clicking sound.

Now I don't want to sound mean but it really annoys me how many people DON'T read their manual.

...if it's in the manual, it's hardly a "trick"

LOL, you know, I almost expected these replies. :) I figured I'd name it like that to make it sound cooler.

Who knows, a few years from now, someone with a used Civic will think this post is a godsend. :D

yeah, that's the only annoying thing about this.... That the passenger door doesn't unlock, I don't understand why Honda overlooked this simple little function for this "trick". I read my manual and did this "trick" a while ago but I'm thinking I might disable it, because I almost always have a passenger. It's really annoying to have to unlock the door for them.... Sounds lazy but... oh well. Maybe Hondata can add this function to their reflash. LOL!

It feels like a cheat to me, I dont have a user manual for my new civic! When I bought my car, the dealer lost it or something. Thanks for the car cheats!!:thumb:

I have a manual EX coupe, made in canada. It's not working for some reason. So this is what I did,

-all doors are closed
-parking brake is set
-key in II position, (0,I,II,III so the third is the one when u start the car, i know i put it in II)
-Press and hold the front of the lock button.

now I press and held, but all i hear is the initial locking sound(which is followed by an echo) and then after 5 seconds nothing happends, i dont hear another click, i even held it for like 10 seconds still nothing...

The passenger door probably doesn't automatically unlock for safety reasons.

Still would be nice to have the option, but I can understand why they didn't allow it.
