Door locks inside the vehicle

Unlocking with the door handle

  1. Door lock switch

  2. Door handle


  1. To unlock a door, pull the door lock switch (1) to the "Unlock" position.

  2. To lock a door, push the door lock switch (1) to the "Lock" position.

  3. Pull the door handle (2) to open a door.

  • If a power door lock ever fails to function whilst you are in the vehicle, try one or more of the following techniques to exit:

    • Operate the door unlock feature repeatedly (both electronic and manual) whilst simultaneously pulling on the door handle.

    • Operate the other door locks and handles, front and rear.

    • Lower a front window and use the key to unlock the door from outside.

    • Move to the cargo area and open the tailgate.

  • Do not pull the inner door handle of driver's (or passenger's) door whilst the vehicle is moving.

Locking/unlocking with the central door lock switch

  1. Door lock switch

  2. Door unlock switch


  1. To lock all vehicle doors, press the left side (1) of the switch.

  2. To unlock all vehicle doors, press the right side (2) of the switch.


If the key is in the vehicle (or if the smart key is in the vehicle) and any door is opened, the doors will not lock even though the central door lock switch is pressed.

  • The doors should always be fully closed and locked whilst the vehicle is in motion to prevent accidental opening of the door. Locked doors will also discourage potential intruders when the vehicle stops or slows down.

  • Be careful when opening doors and watch for vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles or pedestrians approaching the vehicle in the path of the door. Opening a door when something is approaching can cause damage or injury.

  • Leaving your vehicle unlocked can invite theft or possible harm to you or others from someone hiding in your vehicle whilst you are gone. Always remove the ignition key, engage the parking brake, close all windows and lock all doors when leaving your vehicle unattended.

  • An enclosed vehicle can become extremely hot, causing death or severe injury to unattended children or animals who cannot escape the vehicle. Furthermore, children might operate features of the vehicle that could injure them, or they could encounter other harm, possibly from someone gaining entry to the vehicle. Never leave children or animals unattended in your vehicle.
