2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: What Exactly Is "Unlocked Door Anti-Lockout?"
April 10, 2014
And what does it mean that it is "On" in our Corvette?
According to the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Owner's Manual:
"Delayed Locking: This feature delays the actual locking of the doors until five seconds after all doors are closed. Delayed locking can only be turned on when the Unlocked Door Anti Lockout feature has been turned off. When [lock icon] is pressed on the powerdoor lock switch with the door open, a chime will sound three times indicating that delayed locking is active. The doors will then lock automatically five seconds after all doors are closed. If a door is reopened before five seconds have elapsed, the five-second timer will reset once all the doors are closed again. Press [lock icon] on the door lock switch again, or press [lock icon] on the RKE transmitter, to override this feature and lock the doors immediately. Delayed locking can be programmed through the Driver Information Center (DIC). "
So, programmed delayed auto-locking is on when this is off. Well, that clears it up (gasp).
