Door lock issues

So I've had my 18 compass for a few weeks now and I'm trying to figure out if I'm missing a setting or something is wrong. When I drive and then park and shut off the car and get out I can't open the back door from the outside without unlocking the jeep. I have the setting checked in the menu about unlocking the doors but it doesn't seem to do anything.

Does anyone else have this issue?

Try getting out within a couple seconds of shutting off your car, or even better, next time open ur door before shutting off (with the appropriate "unlock on exit" setting selected). Do the back doors open now?
I have the same "issue" that doors dont unlock if u shut down and open your door a few seconds later. I guess this is by design. Cherokee I use to have definetly wasnt programmed like this...

Have the same issue. I hate it. You can open your door before you shut off or be quick after shutting off. All are PITA and Jeep should fix it.

I haven't experimented with mine yet but could child safety lock settings be at play here also? Just another thing to check.

Mine does the same thing. Annoying, but I found that having the door open when shutting the car off seems to work (like others have mentioned).

It is maddening - especially when I have left something on the passenger seat with intentions of walking around the car to get it out of the passenger side door (usually this is my PURSE - with my KEYS in it!) ... then I have to walk back around to the driver's door to unlock the thing. I have been trying to remember to hit the unlock button as I'm getting out - I need brain re-training to survive this quirk.

In the settings there is an option to unlock all doors upon unlocking. I am not in the car to see what the exact wording is. I think it may possibly be with a one click or two click on the remote but I don't use the remote and all doors open.

Thanks for the suggestion. I have been though all the settings a dozen times. Also the child door locks. Everything is set correctly. It is another annoyance Jeep needs to fix or at least try.
