How do I unlock the car with the keys?

Your vehicle can be manually unlocked with the keys. To do so, simply insert the key into either front door lock, and rotate the key clockwise until you hear the doors unlocked. If you are using the passenger’s door, then all of the doors, and the trunk will unlock. If you are using the driver’s door, only the driver’s door will unlock, and you will have to repeat the process a second time to unlock the rest of the doors.
