  • The driver door will unlock unless you’ve disabled two-stage unlocking, in which case all the doors will unlock.

  • If two-stage unlocking is active, press the 3 and 4 after entering your code to unlock all the doors.

To Unlock the Trunk:

  • Enter your code.

  • Press the 5 and 6.

To Lock All Doors:

  • Press 7/8, and 9/10 at the same time.

  • Hold them for a few seconds.
