    Questions:

    1. Is the MFD affected in any way?

    2. When does the door lock kick in? ex. 15 mph, when the ignition goes on, etc.

    3. If someone gets in/out, do the doors lock again, or does the car have to be stopped and then restarted for the locks to re-lock?

    4. Is the doorlock function changed in any way? For instance, can the user options to unlock both doors/drivers only door etc. still be manually changed.

    Thanks. This looks like a product I would want.

    Hi, here are the answers to your ?'s. Thanks for asking.



    The Priuslock is primarily for safety when initially getting in the car. My wife had a 4Runner with this feature and when she switched to the Prius she would realize halfway to work that she hadn't locked her doors. This fixes that safety issue.

    Hi
    I'm just wondering will the doors unlock when you power off the car?

    Thanks

    Hi, on the Prius, the front doors will unlock when you pull on the lever to open the door from the inside so I felt that there wasn't a need to have it unlock automatically upon powering the car down. My main concern was for initial safety when entering the car by having the doors lock when it is powered up.

    For most people, the auto-lock feature will be useful. It will not fit my need.

    Let me explained why. For some situation, I need to power up my car to listen to music while waiting in the parking lot. I do not see the need to auto-lock the car when I powered up. In additional, I see some hazard for kids when they mistakenly powered up the car and lock themself in the car.

    I do see the need to auto-lock the car when I shift to D or R. Preferable D.

    Regarding the kids... since that is an important question... The doors do NOT lock unless you power the car up with your foot on the brake. So unless they are sitting in the drivers seat, have long legs.......... It shouldn't be a problem regarding that issue....

    It was designed for the safety aspect of someone getting in their car and having the doors lock as soon as they power it up. Having it lock when the car reached a certain speed defeats that purpose.

    I believe he said it will lock when you power up the car, with your foot on the brake. So there is no need for a certain speed.

    Why would you have it lock the doors at a certain speed than rather when the car powers up?


    It is a good idea but feel $70 is to expensive to just lock the doors automatically, when I can press a button for free. If it were say $20 I might have taken the plunge.

    Don't the doors just open if you pull on the inside handle? Any child with the strength and agility to get in the Prius and start it up should be able to open the door from the inside.

    I like the idea of locking when I power up rather than getting up to a certain speed. Frequently I'm not up to 15mph (or whatever) for some time after I get in the car, i.e. leaving a parking lot, etc. I think this is a better approach.

    My wife and I have had cars with auto door locks for a long time, so it's not so easy to get back in the habit of manually locking the doors.

    That said, $70 seems a tad high. I'm still not sure on this one.

    well i want both
    when you drive and open the doors and a passenger gets out then you drive away again and the doors lock.. you dont power up and down the prius
    so i want it to lock on power and if not locked also lock at a speed limit

    Ok let me get this straight I understand that this device will ONLY lock when the power button is pressed and no other time is that right?

    Here is how it works. Get in the car, foot on the brake, push power button, doors lock. Car won't automatically lock again until powered up from the "off" position with foot on brake pedal.
