The right touch can open doors.
Your key fob couldn’t be easier to use. Because you don’t even have to use it to lock or unlock your car. Just make sure you have it with you. The radio transmitter in your key fob and the sensor in the driver’s door will take care of the rest.
Make sure you have your key fob with you.1 Then just pull the door handle to unlock and open the door.
NOTE: If you are standing on the driver’s side with the key fob with you, only the driver’s door unlocks. If you are standing on the passenger’s side with the key fob with you, all doors unlock.
- Press down the brake pedal.
- Push the START/STOP button (A) on the console. The vehicle will start only after you have placed your foot on the brake.
Make sure you have your key fob with you. Then touch your thumb to the depression on the handle. (NOTE: The door will not lock if you are grasping the handle.)
NOTE: Be sure not to stand too close to the vehicle for prolonged periods of time with the key on your person, as it may drain the key battery.

Improper use of power locks can result in serious personal injury.
- The power locking button locks all doors. Locking the doors from the inside can help prevent unintended door opening during a collision and can also prevent unwanted entry from the outside. Locked doors can, however, delay assistance to vehicle occupants and rescue from the outside in an accident or other emergency.
- Never leave children or those who cannot help themselves alone in the vehicle. All doors can be locked from the inside with the power lock button. This could leave people trapped in the vehicle in an emergency. Depending on the time of year, people trapped in the vehicle can be exposed to very high or very low temperatures.
- A closed vehicle can become very hot or very cold, depending on the season. Particularly in the summer, heat buildup in the passenger and luggage compartment of a parked vehicle can result in temperatures in the vehicle that are much higher than outside temperatures. Temperatures can quickly reach levels that can cause unconsciousness and death, particularly to small children.
- Never allow passengers to remain in a locked vehicle. Locked doors can delay assistance to vehicle occupants and rescue from the outside in the event of an emergency. In an emergency any person still inside the vehicle might not be able to get out.
