How do I use the childproof door locks?

The childproof door locks are an important safety feature that help keep children safe in your vehicle. When set, the childproof door locks make it impossible to open the rear doors from the inside of the vehicle, even when the door is unlocked. That way, a child is unable to open the door at any point. Here’s how to set the childproof door locks: 1. Open the rear doors (the locks need to be set on each door). 2. Locate the childproof locks, which are near the latch on the side of each door. 3. Move the switches to the Lock position. 4. Close the doors. 5. Try to open the doors from the inside of the vehicle, to make sure that the childproof door locks are working. Tip When the childproof door locks are in use, the doors can still be opened from the outside of the vehicle, as long as they are unlocked.
