Does the auto unlock for you all work like this: all the doors unlock as expected when the engine is running and I open my driver door. However, when I turn off the car, I have to open my door within a few seconds, otherwise the auto unlock does not work. This gets annoying sometimes, because I go to my back door and it will be locked if I didnt get out of the car fast enough. so then need to go back to the front and unlock. I dont get why it doesnt unlock when I go into park, like every other car ive driven, or have a longer exit time frame (like 30 seconds)

Bump.

Anyone else have their auto-unlock work like this. I'm wondering if this is an issue or by design...

Mine does the same thing. Dealer said they all work that way. I said Okay that's fine. Tell Jeep to fix the issue.
It is a pain in the backside.

Too bad with this being normal, that if we want a fix its going to take a while. If its not safety related then often it can take years if it even happens. Lucky for those that haven't bought as yet, this is something to look out for.

This could potentially be a safety issue. In an accident, motor shuts off, gas spilling, can't open rear doors to get children out... Initially, I saw this as a trivial matter, but maybe it IS something that needs to be addressed as a true safety issue.

I agree - I usually get out then walk around the car to get my purse, but all the doors are still locked! I have had to walk back around to unlock it essentially every time I get home. I guess I need the exercise :/

I doubt it would considered a safety issue, as it seems FCA already addressed the problem. I copied and pasted this right from the online owners manual.

Enhanced Accident Response System
In the event of an impact, if the communication network
remains intact, and the power remains intact, depending
on the nature of the event, the ORC will determine whether
to have the Enhanced Accident Response System perform
the following functions:
• Cut off fuel to the engine.
• Flash hazard lights as long as the battery has power or
until the hazard light button is pressed. The hazard
lights can be deactivated by pressing the hazard light
button.
• Turn on the interior lights, which remain on as long as
the battery has power or for 15 minutes from the
intervention of the Enhanced Accident Response Sys-
tem.
• Unlock the power door locks.
• Turn off the Diesel Fuel Filter Heater — If Equipped.
• Turn off the HVAC Blower Motor.
• Close the HVAC Circulation Door.


Honestly I like this feature, as both my wife and I both work in high crime areas, and there are times that either of us doesn't want the other doors to unlock.

LOL! Of course! The Corp has the appropriate "CYA" verbage! wink: Personally, I don't have an issue with the way the locks work either!
