How do I know if the doors have locked or unlocked?

Whether you’re using the remote to open the car or you’re locking the doors using the electronic key, you need a way to make sure that the doors are actually locked or unlocked without having to guess. There’s good news. The car will tell you. When you lock or unlock your doors, the turn signals will flash, and the buzzer will activate.

  • One Flash: This means that your doors are locked.

  • Two Flashes: This means that your doors are unlocked.
