Exclamation How do i stop my 03 Ranger from auto unlocking when I turn off the engine?

Whenever my Ranger's engine gets turned off, the doors automatically unlock. This is annoying because I have an all manual truck, so I have to manually press the locking mechanism back down on the passenger door to lock it again when I get out. How can I get my truck to stop doing this?

Yeah aftermarket alarm you'll need to identify what it is then get a manual for it. Most alarms have ways to change those settings with a combination of button presses.

You'll have to find the brain which will be the hard part its under the dash or behind the radio it'll be hidden pretty well. Most common places are passenger or driver kick well. Or behind radio anywhere they can access the door locks and door trigger wiring easily. Once you find it it'll have a sticker somewhere to identify make and model.
