Your car is equipped with a special feature that allows you to prevent children from opening the back doors. This offers significantly greater safety and parents are urged to use the childproof door locks all the time. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Open the rear door

  2. Locate the lock switch on the inside edge of the door

  3. Flip the switch down to turn on the childproof locks

  4. Flip the switch up to turn off the childproof locks

  5. Repeat this for the other door

Tip

When childproof locks are engaged, the doors will only open using the outside door handles. The inside door handles are disabled.
