Just got our 2007 Tribeca Ltd and cannot figure out how to enable the automatic door lock feature. Anyone know how this works?

Thanks!

Ok, I'm confused. I called the dealer and they're telling me that the doors do not automatically lock on the Tribeca. I thought just about any vehicle these days locked when you put the car in gear or hit a certain speed. I also read an online review and one of the complaints was that the doors locked when you drive off but only the front doors unlock when you stop the vehicle.

So...can anyone confirm that the Tribeca does NOT have automatic door locks?

Back when subaru used CodeAlam as a vendor for their Keyless / Security systems you could filp some dip switched in the brain and have all the doors lock when you turned the key to start the car. When you turned the car off, you could set it to only unlock the drivers door (but none of the others) Since I had little kids at the time I enabled that function. Subaru stopped using CodeAlarm and started using Alpine sometime in 01 ish I think. Now with the B9 all the features even including enabling the shock sensor (along with setting the sencitivity level) need to be activated with the Select Monitor hardware programmer that only the dealer has. Kind of a PITA if you ask me. I just checked the service manual and I can see that there is indeed a function for Auto Lock but it's not something north america gets :( I'm attaching a scan of the partial listing of the things that the dealer can turn on and off.
