Keyless locking

All of the doors have to be closed before the vehicle can be locked. However, the tailgate can be open when a door handle is used for locking.

Touch the marked area on the outside of one of the door handles after the door is closed. Or press the P5-1507 Power Operated Tailgate - close and lock button button on the lower edge of the tailgate before it is closed.
The lock indicator light on the dashboard will flash to confirm that the vehicle is locked.

To close all door windows at the same time - place your finger on the pressure-sensitive indentation on the outside of the door handle and hold it there until the side windows have closed.

Locking when the tailgate is open

If the vehicle is locked and the tailgate is still open, make sure that the remote key is not left in the cargo compartment when the tailgate is closed.


If the key is detected in the vehicle, the tailgate will not lock when it is closed.

Keyless unlocking

To unlock, grasp a door handle or lightly press the rubberized button on the underside of the tailgate handle.

The lock indicator light on the dashboard will stop flashing to confirm that the vehicle is unlocked.

Automatic relocking

If none of the doors or tailgate are opened within two minutes after being unlocked, they will automatically relock. This function reduces the risk of inadvertently leaving the vehicle unlocked.
