Have 2007 V70. All doors lock except drivers after driving in Drive about one second. So I have to unlock the car, for instance, in the driveway to unload groceries. Very annoying. Doesn't happen in reverse when I back down the driveway. If it has something to do with the turn signal arm I'm out of luck--the dog chewed it years ago so I can't reset if that's what I need to do. Any ideas? Howard

Certain later years you can modify this setting yourself, unsure regarding 2007.

But you may need the reset button on the left stalk, so if that's gone, your only other option is VIDA software or a dealer trip. Although you should be able to pick up a stalk for pretty cheap nowadays on the classifieds.

The manual says this:

Automatic locking
The function locks the doors automatically when the vehicle's speed exceeds approximately 5 mph. The doors will then remain locked until a door is opened from the inside or if all of the doors are unlocked from the control panel in the drivers door.

Activating/deactivating automatic locking:
1. Turn the ignition key to position I or II
2. Press the READ button on the left side steering wheel lever to erase any messages that may be displayed in the information display.
3. Depress the central locking button on the control panel until a new message about the locking status is displayed.

The message AUTOLOCK ON (the doors will be locked when the vehicle begins to move) or AUTOLOCK OFF will be displayed.
