Scion IM doesn't auto lock when you drive off!! help! I think there is a way to set this up, if you know please teach me.

I want my Scion IM to auto-lock when I drive off, I think around 12mph or something. OR maybe auto-unlock when I turn off the engine? :D

I emailed Scion customer service regarding this as our previous car, a Toyota Sienna, did this when you drove off. Unfortunately, they responded that this feature is not offered on the iM.

Seems like a strange thing to leave out of the car, but at the same time, is it really a big deal? Are you afraid you might open the door while driving? I'm sure there are still childs' locks on the rear doors.

yea i was fiddling in the options menu via the physical settings button on the radio dash and was hoping to find something like this as recent toyotas that come with some sort of display have been allowing you to do this.

Being a vehicle families will be using it seems like a feature you'd think they include due to the increased need for safety.

Could be one of those things we get in a future year model, easy for them to do and something owners will clearly appreciate.

If you are in an area where car-jacking is not a problem, no. If you are, then I guess it's subjective. My wife feels safer with doors locked and got used to our Toyota doing this automatically.

I got a 2015 Chrysler 200 for a rental after our accident that did this and every time it did it scared the crap out of me, lol. I hated it to be honest, and found it quite annoying. I never owned a car that had this feature before so I guess Im just not use to it... maybe if it wasn't so loud? *shrugs*

That's one thing i noticed a lot about american vehicles, they are loud, with just about everything you can function in them.

Usually, the option to auto-lock when driving will be available to customize in the body control ECU. I get my iM on Tuesday/Wednesday from our dealership so I'll check it out then with the TDT (Techstream Toyota mechanic laptop) and see what settings I can change in the body control ECU and post it up.

It's not listed on the manual so keep us updated!

So, for those who wanted to know about auto locks when driving away, I found nothing in the cars computer... Can adjust when the stationary auto lock timeout is and such, but nothing for drive away style.
