Locking

Using the door handle switch

Pressing the button of the front outside door handles with all doors closed and any door unlock, locks all the doors. If all doors, trunk and engine hood are closed, the hazard warning lights will blink and the chime will sound once to indicate that all doors are locked.

However, if any door remains open, the doors won't lock and the chime will sound for 3 seconds. Close the door and try again to lock the doors.

If trunk lid or engine hood remains open, the hazard warning light and chime won't operate. After this, trunk lid and engine hood are closed, the hazard warning lights blink once.

The button will only operate when the smart key is within 28~40in. (0.7~1m) from the outside door handle.

If you want to make sure that a door has locked or not, you should check the door lock button inside the vehicle or pull the outside door handle.

Even though you press the outside door handle buttons, the doors will not lock and the chime will sound for 3 seconds if any of following occur:

Х The smart key is in the vehicle.

Х The ignition switch is in ACC or ON position.

Х Any door except the trunk is open.
