How do I lock the doors from outside without a key?

The doors can be locked even if you don’t have a key. Just switch the inside Lock button into the lock position before you close the door. This allows you to lock all of the doors at once even if you don’t have a key with you.

Tip

The door won’t be locked if the key is in the ignition and either one of the front doors is open.
