I'll try the dealer, but it sounds like I'm going to have to come up with a jumper wire. I really didn't want to crawl under the dashboard - I used to do that a lot, but I'm too old now.
First, umm that is why we have child locks on the back doors... I very highly recommend that people use them when they have kids. :-D even if the kids are 12. lolz. I've seen time and time again the kids thinking it was funny and opening the door while the car was moving. The kids don't know better.
but on the lock auto locking.... the dealership guys... SOME know how to use the consult 3 and some don't. I had to do what someone else did.... I downloaded the PDF... then printed the pages needed for the instructions on how to reprogram the options with the modes you want. THE GUY USED my papers! He had no idea on earth how to do it and asked no questions. :-D
You can create a board that can be placed in the console. very easy to do, but remember... those boards are costly now. so make sure you test it on a testing board and drive like that for a while. just makesure that when you send the signal to the lock that it is a pulse and not a constant 5 or 12 volts and you use the 12V power in the door and not from somewhere else. I could make the board for you if I wanted but maybe not. lol. cause I can't test it in your model to make sure it works correctly.
so when in drive, it should be on. not the reverse. and don't make the mistake of seting it up to send a pulse to open the doors at park. that would over ride the security alarm.
oh ya, I'm a computer electronic tech and a computer expert. :-D
OH LAST NOTE! it is not possible/easy to "use a jumper under the dashboard" The best way is "if drive == forward; then lock == locked;" but then again I am almost sure that there is a selection on the Consult 3 to do what you need. if you don't know what that is. here is an ebay link. lolz

that is just for the second version. I am thinking the third.... you likely wouldn't ever get it for less than 1500 dollars??? I forget the correct number. ya they raised the prices so they can help prevent people from programming their own keys, or anything that has to do with their own car.
now wasn't my post helpful. lol
edit... forgot about this one. "if drive is not equal to park then send a pulse to the locks" if a constant voltage was put on the locks, then it could damage the electronics. So it has to be a very short pulse but long enough to trigger the chip.
