Pushing the rear of either master door lock switch will unlock both doors.

The lock tab on the passenger’s door

The lock tab on the passenger’s door locks and unlocks that door.

When the door is unlocked, you can see the red indicator on the lock tab above the inner door handle.

Both doors can be locked from the outside by using the key in the driver’s door. To unlock only the driver’s door, insert the key, turn it clockwise, and release it. The passenger’s door unlocks when you turn the key a second time within a few seconds.

You can open or close the windows and the moonroof (if equipped) by using the key in the driver’s door.

Lockout Prevention

If you forget and leave the key in the ignition switch, lockout prevention will not allow you to lock the driver’s door. With either door open and the key in the ignition switch, locking with the master door lock switch is disabled. If the driver’s door is closed, the lock tab on the driver’s door is not disabled. Pulling the driver’s lock tab rearward will lock both doors. If you try to lock an open driver’s door by pulling the lock tab rearward, the driver’s door lock tab pops out and unlocks the driver’s door.
