How do I set the ignition switch all door unlock mode?

When your car is in ignition switch all door unlock mode, then all of the doors will automatically unlock when the car is turned off. As soon as the ignition switch is turned out of the On setting, all four doors and the trunk will unlock. To set the ignition switch all door unlock mode, follow these steps: 1. Engage the parking brake. 2. Depress the brake pedal and hold it down. 3. Move the shift lever out of the P setting, and into any other setting. 4. Close the driver’s door if it is not already closed. 5. Turn the ignition to On. 6. Press the unlock button on the master door lock switch (located on the driver’s door), and hold. After about five seconds, you will hear two clicks, but keep holding the switch. After another five seconds, you will hear one click, at which point you can release the button. 7. Turn the ignition to ACC. This step will need to be done within 20 seconds of step 6.
