You can use your remote to lock or unlock your car doors, but you can also do so with the mechanical key. Here’s what you need to know:

  1. Insert the key into the driver side door lock.

  2. Turn it once to the left. This will lock all the doors.

  3. Turn the key once to the rear to unlock only that door.

  4. Turn the key once to the rear, back to upright, and then back to rear again in five seconds and all the doors will unlock.
