When rear doors will not open from the inside, it’s likely the child locks have been engaged. Though it’s a well-known safety feature, it can still puzzle members who aren’t familiar with them.

How to turn them On/Off

Most vehicle child locks are turned on and off by a small switch or lever located on the frame of the door.

Several shapes, sizes and arrangements of these locks exist but almost all have a small lever and indicate when they’re “On” or locked.

What happens when my windows won’t open?

Many of our vehicles have a control to centrally lock and unlock all window controls except for the driver’s. When a passenger window won’t open or close, check the power window lock button on the driver door:

If it’s engaged (either pushed down or switched on) this is likely the cause of the issue. However, if you encounter these issues and the tips above don’t help you solve the problem, call our Member Loyalty Team at 604.685.1393 so they can notify me and my team.
