Door Locks

Unlocked doors can be dangerous. WARNING
Unlocked doors can be dangerous.

► Passengers, especially children, can easily open the doors and fall out of a moving vehicle. The chance of being thrown out of the vehicle in a crash is increased if the doors are not locked. So, all passengers should wear safety belts properly and the doors should be locked whenever the vehicle is driven.
► Young children who get into unlocked vehicles may be unable to get out. A child can be overcome by extreme heat and can suffer permanent injuries or even death from heat stroke. Always lock the vehicle whenever leaving it.
► Outsiders can easily enter through an unlocked door when slowing or stopping the vehicle. Lock the doors to help prevent this from happening.

To lock and unlock the door, use the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter or the key from the outside, and the door lock knob or switch from the inside.

To unlock or lock the fuel door, use the RKE transmitter or the door lock switch from the inside.

From inside the vehicle with the doors locked, pull once on the door handle to unlock it, and a second time to open it.

Manually locking the driver door also automatically locks all other doors.
