I bought this car almost two months ago, and i found out that when locking the car from outside, you can't unlock it from the inside(accidently locked my brother inside).

But now... this feature doesn't seem to work anymore.
I leave someone in the car, shut the doors, then lock it. But the person inside can unlock it. How do i get this to work again?

Umm, i think your brother is retarted, and couldnt figure out how to unlock a door. That shouldnt be a feature because of saftey reason.

Uhh no, it's called "double locking"
Anyways, after more investigating, it seems to double lock the passenger side front and rear doors, but not the driver side.
:/

My Keyless double locks.. It's hilarious locking someone in and walking away pretending not to realize it. Dunno why yours is messing up tho.

I believe you have to hold the key all the way in the locking direction. If you don't turn it far enough it won't double lock.

I've tried lots of ways to try and activate it, and it works on all doors execpt the driver's door.
It's odd that it is doing this because the door lock works fine, power locks and unlocks, just not the double lock

Isn't it so you can leave your windows down and lock the doors and people won't be able to open your doors, seems like a SERIOUS risk if you locked a kid inside.

Check order and be sure its all in the right order and such.

when I test drove my car we bumped into a locking problem it was just a matter of doing it in the proper order. But test driving isnt a normal situation so some doors open others closed turnk open. Keys at the trunk. But doors not locking from the doors...

I think the back door was open I wanted back into the driver seat after the doors had been locked from the outside. I couldn't get the drivers door to open even from the inside (because of the double locking). The passenger side lock sometimes sticks or the door was open so we were someohow able to get back in that side but we used the key and figured it out eventauly... it was all just a matter of process... damn safty/anti-theft features.

wow that didn't make a bit of sence. did it?

hehe not really.. but what i think did the trick on my car, is that i locked the doors by locking the trunk, maybe that reset everything or something :/
