Your car is equipped with power door locks on each door. The driver door lock controls will operate all the locks in the car, while the other door lock controls will only operate that specific door. Using them is simple:

  • Press the Unlock button to unlock the door.
  • Press the Lock button to lock the door.


  • The driver’s control panel can lock or unlock all doors.

  • If small children are riding in the back seat, it’s recommended to use the childproof door lock.
