Default Help with reactivating auto lock

There used to be a time when my 2008 xB would auto lock. For example, if I unlocked my car with my keys from inside the house, and never ended up going to my car, the car would lock itself after a moment. Or when I would come home work, etc., and go inside, the car would lock itself if I ever forgot to lock it myself, but Iíve noticed that for the past few weeks, it hasnít been doing it. Does anyone know how to restore this feature?

The first generation door lock repair manual mentions the auto lock feature but doesn't offer repair scenarios.

Unless you've done it recently, I'd change the key fob battery. Otherwise, it might be the door control relay assembly which sends LOCK and UNLOCK signals to the door actuators. The door control relay assembly is under the dash. You may be able to get to it by removing the radio. Otherwise you may have to remove the dash.

To be honest, I don't think I've ever changed the battery, so I'll give that a shot first. Much appreciated! Thank you!

How to do it is about 1/3 of the way down this page, https://www.scionlife.com/forums/sci...ocking-161642/
