Default Automatic Power Locks

Hello, unsure if this has been covered. I searched around a bit and could not find anything. My wife as a 2005 Edge and it has power everything. Do they have the feature that will lock the doors automatically after the truck is put into gear or something similar. I am asking for security reasons because my wife gets out of work at night and well ... ya' never know. Thanks!

I dont know if they make anything like that? I dont mean to sound like a smart ass at all but wouldnt it be cheaper and safer to just lock the doors when you get in. Most cars that do that don't lock when it goes into gear they usually lock after the car reaches 10+/- mph

She does lock it when she gets in, I just worry that the one time she forgets .... that would be the time that someone tries something. Oh well, if its not something that is already part of the programming, I guess that I will just have to deal with it as it is. Thanks for the reply.

I have an aftermarket alarm and it locks the doors when I start the truck. If I start the truck with one door open, it doesn't lock the doors. They all have to be closed.

Ya same with my old '98 F150. It locked the doors a few seconds after it started, as long as both doors were closed at the time it started. That might have been because of the viper remote start/alarm system i had installed though... I don't recall.
