There are several conditions that the JL measures to determine whether or not to engage Autopark. The main three are the door, the seatbelt, and driver seat weight.

With doors on:
The computer checks for the door to be shut and seatbelt to be buckled. If both of the are not met...Autopark.

With doors off:
The computer checks for the seatbelt to be buckled and weight on the drivers seat. If both are not met...Autopark.

Other conditions include brake pedal, vehicle speed, ignition position, and transmission gear selection.

It’s all right there in the manual...
No one reads the manual.

Agree, Auto Park is stupid, and we should be able to disable it. Since the inception of the automobile, there was NO such thing as AUTO PARK. Now with the advent of electronic shifting transmissions, FCA thinks we need it.

How does Auto park work when the doors are removed? Does the jeep still Auto Park if the seat belts and doors are off?
I agree. Sadly, all it takes is one stupid person to get hurt trying to move their Jeep forward, and then the "company lawyers" kick in. I guess they figure they need to come up with as much ignorant "nannies" as they can to show they are earning their salary. SMH

Does auto park kick in for only the drivers door, or any door ?
That might have saved the life of the child dragged to death by a carjacker. She tried to get out rear door, got caught by seat belt, dragged for miles.

Recently discovered that if you use your parking brake while traveling down an icy road you will successfully engaged auto park also. Quite a learning curve for those people who wouldn't consider straight line doughnuts enjoyable.
