    Yeah, I know it's supposed to do that. But whoever wrote the FMVSS regulations here apparently doesn't trust that this will happen.

    And I can sort of understand that. Personally, I don't care to have my doors locked at all while driving, unless I'm in a sketchy neighborhood.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Before I retired I used to drive through many sketchy neighbourhoods so I was very happy that my doors SAFE locked automatically when I reached around 5mph

    I'm not sure how i configured my profile but I didn't got any notifications.
    Bit late on this topic, my wife delivered the last days

    My issue is still back and forth...
    I noticed that when I the driver door doesn't unlock electrically and unlock manually from inside then the electrical lock/unlock features works fine until the next stop. I'm thinking that error code tends to be the correct one and the microswitch got "stuck" sometime.
    I'll still check with the ohm meter the cable, what do you think about the spray to clean electrical connections ?

    The SAFE locked automatically when above 5 mph is different that the Rest of World SAFELOCK I believe ?
    Yes my car is a North America.... BTW strange that my GTI is less equipped than the golf 1.2 tsi of my parents in France ...
