The child-protector lock is a key safety feature that helps keep children secure in the backseat. When the child-protector lock is engaged, the rear doors cannot be opened from the inside, even if the standard lock is unlocked. This makes it impossible for children to open the vehicle from the inside. Setting the child-protector locks takes only a few steps: 1. Open the rear doors. The lock has to be set on both doors. 2. Locate the locks, which are located on the side of the open doors, next to the door latches. 3. Switch the locks to the lock position by pushing them down. 4. Close the doors. 5. Attempt to open the doors from the inside, to ensure that the child-protector locks are working properly. Tip When the child-protector locks are engaged, the rear doors can still be opened from the outside, as long as the traditional locks are unlocked.
