How do I unlock the car with the smart key?

The smart key allows you to unlock your vehicle without using the key. Here’s how to use the unlock feature: 1. Make sure the smart key is on your person, such as in your pocket. 2. Press the button on the driver’s front door handle to unlock the driver’s door. The chime will sound twice, and the hazard lights will flash to confirm this action. 3. Press the button a second time within four seconds to unlock all of the doors and the trunk. The chime will again sound twice, and the hazards will again flash to confirm this action. Tip If you press the button on the front passenger’s door handle, all of the doors will unlock.
