While the keyless entry keypad on your driver front door allows you to access the car, you do need to know how to use it. Here’s how:

  • Enter your access code and then press 3 and 4 to unlock all the doors and the liftgate.
  • Without entering your access code, press 7 and 8 and then 9 and 0 to lock all the doors and the liftgate.
  • Enter your access code and press the 5 and 6 buttons to open the back glass.

Tips

  • Use either the factory access code or your personal access code.

  • You only have five seconds to press the second set of numbers after entering your access code.
