Chevrolet Silverado: Keys and Locks / Door Locks

Chevrolet Silverado 2019-2024 Owners Manual / Keys, Doors, and Windows / Keys and Locks / Door Locks

Warning

Unlocked doors can be dangerous.

  • Passengers, especially children, can easily open the doors and fall out of a moving vehicle. The doors can be unlocked and opened while the vehicle is moving. The chance of being thrown out of the vehicle in a crash is increased if the doors are not locked. So, all passengers should wear seat belts properly and the doors should be locked whenever the vehicle is driven. (Continued)

Warning (Continued)

  • Young children who get into unlocked vehicles may be unable to get out. A child can be overcome by extreme heat and can suffer permanent injuries or even death from heat stroke. Always lock the vehicle whenever leaving it.
  • Outsiders can easily enter through an unlocked door when you slow down or stop the vehicle. Locking the doors can help prevent this from happening.

There are several ways to lock and unlock the vehicle.

From outside:

  • Use the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter.
  • Use Keyless Access, if equipped.
  • Use the key in the driver door or the passenger door, if equipped. From inside, use the power door locks or the manual door locks. To lock the door with the manual door locks, push down on the manual lock knob. From inside, pull the door handle once to unlock the door. Pull the handle again to open the door. See Vehicle Alarm System.

Free-Turning Locks

The door key lock cylinder turns freely when either the wrong key is used, or the correct key is not fully inserted. The free-turning door lock feature prevents the lock from being forced open. To reset the lock, turn it to the vertical position with the correct key fully inserted. Remove the key and insert it again. If this does not reset the lock, turn the key halfway around in the cylinder and repeat the reset procedure.

    Remote Vehicle Start

    If equipped with the remote start feature, the climate control system will come on when the vehicle is started remotely, depending on the outside temperature...
