So when I come to a stop my 08 fortwo leves the doors locked. My other vehicle (astro van) will unlock them when you put it in park. Its hard to keep the doors open to get passengers in. Is the door locking sequence programable? I would like it to stop locking itself or at least unlock when put back in park.

It is "programmable" in that you can turn off the "auto lock" feature, in which case the doors will never lock automatically. Pretty easy to unlock the doors when you come to a stop by just hitting the unlock button on the button bank.... :)

Our 2011 doesn't work that way. If it's stopped and I unlock the car using the button bank, it stays unlocked until the next time it's driven, when the auto lock function locks the doors again.

Drive lock function
The vehicle locks automatically when the
ignition is switched on and the wheels are
turning at vehicle speeds of approximately
8 mph (14 km/h) or more. The drive lock
function is enabled at the factory.
X Switching on: Switch off the ignition.
X Press the central locking switch
(Y page 54) and button [lock] on the key
simultaneously.
An acoustic signal sounds.
The drive lock function is switched on.
X Switching off: Switch off the ignition.
X Press the central unlocking switch
(Y page 54) and button [unlock] on the key
simultaneously.
An acoustic signal sounds.
The drive lock function is switched off.

I'm glad, my idea won't be useful anymore. I hope your car's issue was resolved. Also, it is better to ask your friends or your neighbors next time maybe they could help you too.
