Mein Auto: 328i
Smile Can I make doors lock automatically?

Hello, I just purchased a used 2011 328i sedan. It's my 6th BMW but I haven't had one in a few years and need some help. I think in my previous BMW's I was able to program the car to automatically lock once I had been driving a few seconds. Am I remembering correctly? Is there a way to do this? I've looked in the manual and can find info about comfort access (which I don't think I have) but nothing about automatic locking when in motion. Does anyone know? Could you tell me how? Also, My others had alarms that would beep when I pressed the lock button on the remote twice. This one doesn't seem to have one. Am I wrong that they are standard? Could it be disconnected? Thanks for your kind help!

If you have iDrive, look in the "Settings" menu.

Otherwise, check the owner's manual ... info should be there.

Your car should lock automatically when the speed gets to about 8 mph. But this feature is programmable through your computer. It can be set by the driver, whether or not you have iDrive.

The alarm was a factory option on the 2011 328i. If your car does not "beep" when locking (or unlocking) it, you may not have the alarm. Although, I think the alarm can be set for silent mode, if so equipped. Unfortunately, if you do not have the factory alarm, your car is not pre-wired for an alarm. So adding this feature may be difficult.

Incidentally, welcome to Bimmerfest!

Why thank you!!

I've got to figure out how to get into my computer. I believe I don't have the satellite radio option and am also looking into that. I was able to see that through the radio. It's 100 degrees right now and I'm going to go sit in the car with the manual to try to figure it out.

yeah, they still have the auto lock feature. In i-drive you can set it onscreen. My latest car doesn't have it so I programmed it through the stalk, same as my old '03 525i. Hot in Vegas early this year. We usually don't see 105+ for a couple of weeks. Supposed to be 98 this weekend tho. Git me some drop top time before 112+ next month.
