I have an E90 and have just had it serviced. During the service they
reprogrammed the computer and now my doors lock automatically when I drive
away. This is a little annoying for me, because now I have to yank on the
door handle 2 time to exit the car, once to unlock and once to open. I know
that this feature can be disabled but I con't see it anywhere in the manual.
Can anyone here help me out?
Thanks in advance,
Not sure about the E90, but on the E46, you'd either have to have the dealer
reprogram it or live with it. Since you didn't request that auto-locking be
enabled, one would think the dealer is now obligated to fix it at no charge.
The E90 lets you program all that stuff yourself; wish we could
flash the E46s to do that!
The OP should consult his owner's manual; more than likely the
dealership changed some setting and reverted the programming to the
defaults before returning the car.

You can program this feature yourself. Just read Owner's Manual.
Programing is from turn signal lever, quite easy. You may also program
other things yourself from there.
Automatic lock serves as the car jacking prevent feature - when you
exiting, other doors will remail locked so no one can jump in from
passenger site of the car. Just like when you unlock with remote - only
driver's door will unlock first (this you can reprogram yourself too).
If the dealer activated it, then ask them to deactivate it. And, ask them to
show you how it is done.
