Child-Protection Door Lock System — Rear Doors

To provide a safer environment for small children riding in the rear seats, the rear doors are equipped with a Child-Protection Door Lock system.

To use the system, open each rear door, use a flat blade screwdriver (or ignition key) and rotate the dial counterclockwise to engage the Child-Protection lock and clockwise to disengage the Child-Protection locks. When the system on a door is engaged, that door can only be opened by using the outside door handle even if the inside door lock is in the unlocked position.

• When the child lock system is engaged, the door can be opened only by using the outside door handle even though the inside door lock is in the unlocked position.

• After disengaging the Child-Protection Door Lock system, always test the door from the inside to make certain it is in the desired position.

• After engaging the Child-Protection Door Lock system, always test the door from the inside to make certain it is in the desired position.

• For emergency exit with the system engaged, move the lock knob up (unlocked position), roll down the window, and open the door with the outside door handle.

WARNING!
