Your car is equipped with childproof door locks on the back two doors. This is an important feature for parents with young children. Activating the childproof locks ensures that the doors cannot be opened from the inside regardless of what the lock position might be. They can only be opened from the outside. This prevents a child from opening the door while the car is in motion. Here’s how to work the locks:

  1. Open a rear door.

  2. Locate the childproof lock on the outer edge.

  3. Insert your key into the lock.

  4. Turn it to the locking position to activate the lock.

  5. Turn it to the unlocked position to deactivate the lock.

  6. Repeat this process for the door on the other side of the car.
