    It's to unlock the door first. You could just press the unlock button on the center console first then you'd only need 1 pull

    Re: double pull on door handle

    I believe this is a setting related to having locked the doors when inside the car.

    in my 07 CS there is a central locking button on the dash that one could press and get the double pull behavior you're talking about. (I don't lock the car from inside, and hence have a single pull on the handle to exit).

    Re: double pull on door handle

    doors lock at 5mph i will just use the lock button inside the car the one on the dash from now on . think porsche would make it so u hold the button down and it turns of the door locking and stops the double pull on the handle . suppose it has its benefits at the end of the day .

    even when u stop and pick someone up you have to push the button on the dash to open the doors this is a pain in the ***

    If you have PCM, I believe there's a feature to enable/disable the auto door lock which would eliminate the double pull. I prefer to have it, but to each their own.

    Automatically locking at 5MPH is a setting that can be changed. If you have PCM, you can do it yourself, otherwise, you need a dealer. Perhaps Durametric can do it too, I'm not sure

    Re: double pull on door handle

    This was driving me mad so when I was having the cruise coded I also asked Porsche to disable the auto locking.

    So much better now, half pull to drop the windows then full pull to open the door.

    Re: double pull on door handle

    The mods4cars module will autolock the car when you start driving and auto-unlock it when you turn off the ignition, thus automatically eliminating the need to double-pull. It also double-honks the horn when you lock the car with your remote, thus assuring you that the car is in fact locked (in my case, the installer used a siren and thus it chirps in a very high-class way).

    Re: double pull on door handle

    It's subtle but I find if you open the door slowly (at just the right tempo) it's almost a single motion.

    Can't even count the number of times I've had a passenger about pull the handle off trying to open the door with one pull. I would probably disable it if I could for that reason alone.

    Re: double pull on door handle

    Very annoying...

    I have a Durametric and disabled the 5 mph auto lock.
    Problem solved.

    I had a stupid girl pull on the door handle and when it didn't work the first time she tried the window switch.

    Same thing I had on my BMW. It didn't take long to adjust.

    It's a safety feature. I'm so used to it, I don't even know its there. If you have a small kid it's a plus, my wife's Volvo also has same feature.

    Re: double pull on door handle

    i'm getting the impression from the posts on this thread that the auto locking feature is standard...but on my 2007 non-s, i don't have that feature. i was informed that if i wanted the auto locking function, i would have to get the dealer to program it. am i missing something? i've never had the double pull problem.

    Well, it's a coding option so it's on or off.
    Probably is off on your car...
    Go to the dealer, 5 minute job to get it on...

    Re: double pull on door handle

    I bought new and I had to ask the dealer to turn auto locking feature on. Luckily I ask for this to be done at delivery time so I didn't have to pay them to do it.
