In the owner’s manual of my 2012 T & C, it states that the auto locking feature is based on both speed and accelerator throttle position. Hence, once over 15 MPH or so, if the accelerator pedal is not depressed to a certain point, the auto locking feature does not activate. Also, that is why the auto locking feature locks at different times, depending on driving situations.
