The delayed locking feature is present on some models of the vehicle. The feature occurs automatically whenever the door lock switch is pressed inside of the vehicle while a door is open. When all doors are closed, the vehicle will lock them automatically.

Tip

If you want to lock the doors immediately, hit the button a second time and the doors will all lock regardless of their position.
