The directions as above DO work, no matter what the manual does or doesn't say. Within 20 seconds of turning the car on, simply hold the "LOCK" button on your driver's door for 5 seconds, until the light flash, or the car beeps, or whatever. The Leaf will no longer lock the doors automatically. Trust me, its the first thing I changed on my 2012.
