Power Door Locks


Each door has a lock tab next to the inside door handle. When you push in the lock tab on the driver’s door, both doors lock. Pulling out the lock tab on the driver’s door only unlocks that door. The lock tab on the passenger’s door only locks and unlocks that door.


Instruments and Controls

To lock the passenger’s door when getting out of the vehicle, push the lock tab in and close the door. To lock the driver’s door, remove the key from the ignition switch, pull out either the inside or outside door handle and push the lock tab in, then close the door.

Both doors lock when you use the key in the driver’s door. Using the key in the passenger’s door only locks and unlocks that door. To unlock only the driver’s door from the outside, insert the key in the driver’s door lock, turn the key and release it. If you turn the key and hold it, both doors will unlock.
