Activating and deactivating child safety locks

Updated 11/9/2020

Activating and deactivating child safety locks

The child safety lock prevents the rear doors from being opened from inside. With electric child safety locks, power window operation from the rear seat is also prevented.

The child lock can be either manual or electrical*.

Manual child lock

P5-1507 Door with manual child lock with key blade

Manual child lock. Not to be confused with manual door locks.

Use the remote control key's detachable key blade to turn the knob.

The door is blocked against opening from the inside.
The door can be opened from both the outside and the inside.


  • A door's knob control only blocks that particular door - not both rear doors simultaneously.
  • Cars with an electric child safety lock do not have a manual child lock.

Electric child lock*

The electric child lock can be activated and deactivated in all ignition positions above 0. Activation and deactivation can be performed up to 2 minutes after switching off the car, provided that no door is opened.
