All the vehicle hinged panels are secured by latches with mating strikers.

The latches incorporate panel ajar switches that will inform the driver of an open door, tailgate or hood.

The Central Door Locking (CDL) system is operated by either the smart key or the interior CDL switches. The CDL system controls the automatic locking and unlocking of the vehicle entry points. The software used to control the CDL system is incorporated within the Central Junction Box (CJB).

The CDL system is also integrated with the interior lighting function. The interior lights and exterior mirror approach lamps are illuminated via the Radio Frequency (RF) receiver and the CJB following a valid unlock request from the smart key.

For additional information, refer to: Interior Lighting (417-02, Description and Operation).

If configured, the door mirror powerfold function is also operated by the CDL system.

A concealed emergency key barrel is provided in the front driver door exterior handle, and is used to gain access to the vehicle if the battery is discharged or the CDL system fails.
