After a battery replacement our White Toyota Camry started to auto lock the doors at about 10km per hour.  Having children (including a baby in a car seat) and living near a lot of lakes and rivers, this is something I am not at all fond of.  It did not do it before the change of battery (which the garage did).  Can anyone give me a heads up as to how to reset the auto-lock function so that it doesn't lock everyone in when we start driving please.  We have two older Camry's doing the same things.  If it helps anyone, here are each of the Camry's specs:

Went to the zoo yesterday.  Very disappointed!!.  They only had one animal, a small dog.  It was a Shih Tzu.
