Talking Microwave drawer lock?

We have a new Grand Tour and there is no lock/catch to stop the microwave drawer from slamming open / closed on turns. All other cabinets have locks.
Any suggestions would really be appreciated

Suggest you make that number (1) on your punch-list for dealer warranty and fixes, but wait a few weeks , there will probably be more. In the meantime, enjoy your new home away from home and wedge some cardboard on the side while driving. Congratulations on your Interstate.

It's very small and at the bottom on the left, I didn't see it at first. Look again.
They changed it for 2016

Need to buy duct tape in bulk from Costco.

Tried Velcro and it worked well until I found the lock.

Get Gorilla duct tape. Best I've found since I left the Navy 46 years ago.

Thanks to all, finally got it. On control panel, hit "clear" then press and hold on the "lock/unlock" button. Presto! Drawer is locked
Thanks again - no need for duck/gorilla tape ����

The above processes just locks the control panel for my microwave. The door will still open and close. You may still need duct tape

Doesn't your van have a mechanical lock like this in the lower left?
If not, you should have them install it. It's a very simple mechanical lock, you won't need to power up anything.
