    Doors wont unlock when put back in park...Plus other question?

    Couldnt find this in the search but I have a nbs 99 and when you put it back in park after driving it the doors wont unlock by themselves. Is it just a relay or something, they lock once you start going. Also over around the passenger airbag on/off, there are 3 more things ive never seen in these trucks. One looks just like the fog light button where the light controls are and the other is a dial that has 0,1,2,3 and it has a the same picture as the foglight button but with a curved up and down arrow above and below it. And the third is a button that says ride and below the button is says firm with a little light beside it. Neither of them 3 seem to work though... Anyone know anything bout them????

    Do you have your owners manual? It should be in your glove box. It should tell you everything you need to know.

    did this problem just start or have the doors never unlocked once in park. reason i ask is i used to have a ford f150 and they locked automatically but you had to manually unlock i mean with the switch.

    my nbs has steering wheel controls and you choose to have the doors unlock or lock when its put in park or the keys turned off or never maybee that helps

    take a pic...it is worth like 9 thousand words.

    I know I have "auto lock" and "auto unlock" settings in the Driver Information center (Instrument Cluster) there is about 4 ways you can set them (04 silverado)

    Your doors probably dont unlock automatically. The doors on my 99 Sierra would lock when you hit 20mph but u had to manually unlock them.

    The only vehicle Ive ever seen that ride control button on was a 00 Yukon Denali XL, but the shocks were fvcked and it didnt do anything.


    The button on the lower left is def the fog button.

    The upper right button looks like adjustable fog lights for extremely foggy conditions.

    This is in my nbs 99 silverado. Yea the button on the bottom left is identical to the fog light button, but the button that controls my fog lights is on the left side where the headlight controls are, like they are on all the chevys ive ever seen. I did find in the owners manual bout the ride control. Its call manual ride adjustment or somethin like that. Its main purpose is to be used hen the truck is loaded down or pullin a trailer, its supposed to make it ride smoother. The other two idk???

    yeah if its a 99 silverdo i highly doubt it has auto unlocking doors, i havent seen any truck older than an 03 that has em (my buddies dad had a 02 Silverado thats fully loaded and it doesnt have em)

    id suppose with a custom tune you could disable it. Do they lock as soon as it disengages from park or when u hit 20 mph

    i dont think 99s had the same DIC as the 03+. I know my 99 didnt and it had every option available in 99 including an engine block heater, but no steering wheel controls or DIC

    Im gonna swag a guess that the top left button is for adjusting electronic damping shocks. The Autoride equipped Suburban/Tahoes had these shocks except the rear ones had air too. Take a peek at the shocks and see if they don't have wires plugged into them.
    The top right is either a cargo light or more likely an auxiliary (plow) light dimmer.
    Bottom left is secondary fog lights (think the plow again).
    My '00 auto locked at 15mph, and auto unlocked when the key was turned off. There was no adjustment to this feature until the '03 model year.

    I had a 95 grand am that would lock automatically and unlock when I shut the car off, I would keep change in the ash tray and took out the cig lighter cause i hated when people smoked in it, anyways when a penny would get in the cig lighter it would short out the fuse and my door locks wouldn't unlock. They would still lock at 5mph but no unlock when that fuse was blown. Also in my 05 silverado I could set the locking system to how I wanted it to lock or unlock by the owners manual, it had instructions depending on what I wanted it to do.

    well hell, i took them out of the dash and they dont look like theyre hooked up right. they dont have plugs going in to the, its like someone just plugged the wires strait onto the prongs sticking out of them. I think someone just rigged them up in there
