Press unlock on the remote to reset the security system. If you don't have a remote that is matched to the car, use the regular key in the driver's door to unlock the car.

Do you have a key for the door? Check the rear doors, one of them should be unlocked. If that don't work, do you have the F.O.B?

This is from the manual. It could help maybe.....

Q(Lock): Press this button to lock the doors. The
lock status light on the front doors will turn on for
five seconds and the turn signal indicators will flash. If
this button is pressed twice, the doors will lock, the

more than two seconds to close any open window(s) on
your vehicle. If any window is unable to close
completely, it will reverse and the horn will chirp. See

You can program your vehicle so the turn signal

Just press Unlock.

You will need a dealer or a locksmith to get a real key. You'll need one to match Fobs to your car.
