found this on a website:

To deactivate/reactivate the autolock feature using the power door unlock control

You must complete steps 1-7 within 30 seconds or the procedure will have to be repeated. If the procedure needs to be repeated, you must wait 30 seconds.

1. Turn the ignition key to ON.
2. Press the power door unlock control three times.
3. Turn the ignition key from ON to OFF.
4. Press the power door unlock control three times.
5. Turn the ignition back to ON. The horn will chirp.
6. Press the unlock control, then press the lock control.
The horn will chirp once if autolock was deactivated or twice (one short and one long chirp) if autolock was activated.
7. Turn the ignition to OFF. The horn will chirp once to confirm the procedure is complete.

My focus is the mark 2 (56 reg) and apparently does not work on them. For those with the mark one, this might prove useful.

try it and let me know

1. Turn on ignition till dash lights come on but don't start engine!
2. Lock the door using the lever on the door handle and then unlock 3 times
3. Turn off ignition
4. Repeat 2 but with ignition OFF
5. Turn on ignition - should hear a beep
6. Lock door again as in 2 BUT ONLY ONCE - final beep should be heard
7. Done!

Doors should now lock at around 5mph. including reverse!!!

not all mk2s have the software inside for it to be done ford removed it from a lot of the cars so that a software update would be needed to switch it on pointless really as you press the handle and do the same thing manually and this only works once per trip

I've a Mk2 (2006) Zetec. I've not got this procedure in my handbook.

I asked my local Ford dealer how to do it, and they said that it cannot be done on my car.

No catch. That link seems to discuss how to unlock the drivers door only with a single press of the remote. It doesnt seem to have anything to do with automatically locking the doors once you drive off.
