Yet another question. I just installed my new lock cylinders (outside the car) and it looks pretty good. BUT, when I lock the car and then shut the door the door unlocks? Is that normal? If I push in on the door handle and keep it engaged while shutting the door it works fine and does not unlock. Also, if I close the door and use the key the car locks. Strange? Can anyone shed some light on this problem?

Older cars work like that...There's nothing wrong with it

Thanx Tony. That's all I needed, just a little re-assurance

Yeah, they are supposed to do that. From my understanding, it was a feature that helped to prevent you from locking you keys in your car. You had to think about locking the doors when you shut them. You couldn't accidentally push the lock button down, shut the doors, and lock them. You actually had to remind yourself that you were locking the doors. It has saved me several times.

Excellent. I thought that kind of thing was a recent idea with the AsianInvasion. I'm just glad that I don't have some kind of mutant door latches/lock cylinders

Thanks for the help.
