How do I manually unlock the doors from inside the vehicle?

The door lock system is a closed system in your car; there are no knobs to pull up or push down. However, you can still unlock the vehicle manually. To unlock a door from the inside, pull the door handle once. This will unlock the door without opening it. To open the door, pull the door handle a second time.
