The childproof door locks are a very important safety feature that help keep your children safe. When these locks are set, the rear doors cannot be opened from inside the vehicle, so a child cannot accidentally open a door. To set the childproof door locks, follow these simply steps: 1. Open the rear doors. 2. Locate the childproof door locks, which are on the end of each door. 3. Insert the key into one door’s childproof lock, and rotate the key to the horizontal position. 4. Remove the key and close the door. 5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 on the other door. 6. Try to open the door from inside, to make sure that the childproof locks are set. Tip When the childproof door locks are set, the doors can still be opened from outside of the vehicle.
