Q: How does the Auto Lock feature work?

How does the Auto Lock feature work?

Your car is equipped with an auto lock feature that automatically locks all the doors in the car to provide greater safety when on the road. This can keep a door from being accidentally opened when the car is in motion. Here’s how the system works:

The Doors Automatically Lock When:

  • All car doors are shut

  • You have the ignition on

  • The car is in any gear

  • The car’s speed is 12 MPH or more.

If a door is unlocked, opened and then shut again, the system will automatically relock the door after the vehicle gets back up to 12 MPH again.
