I have a 2008 Avalon XL and would like to cancel the auto door unlock feature (i.e. doors automatically unlock when you put the car into park). I've tried using the procedure in the manual but it doesn't work. I must be misinterpreting the instructions. I've searched this forum and Google and found no answers. Does anyone know how to cancel the default setting? Here is what I have tried:

1) Start the engine (car is in Park)
2) immediately push and hold down the unlock button for over 5 seconds.

There is no beep or other indicator that anything worked. Nothing changes. I've tried variations like putting the car into N and then back into P, tried holding it down after stopping etc but nothing seems to work. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Figured out my problem. You have to release after 5 seconds. I thought it would work similar to the way the radio preset function works (i.e. hold it until you hear the beep).
