How do I lock the doors with the remote transmitter?

The remote transmitter key can be used to lock your vehicle from the outside. To lock the doors and set the security system, press the lock button on the transmitter. When the button is pressed, some of the vehicle’s exterior lights will flash to confirm that the doors have been locked. If you press the lock button a second time within five seconds, the horn will honk to confirm that the doors are locked.
