    Default 2018 Child Rear Child Safety Lock

    So I read the manual and used the key in my fob to turn the child safety lock on both rear doors. No matter which direction I choose the mechinism turns about a quarter of a turn and makes no difference. The only way to open the rear doors appears to be from the outside. Am I missing something?

    I did notice that you can't open a rear door from the inside if the engine is running. They can however open them from the outside if they are unlocked with the engine running.
    This is on my 2018 G80 Sedan.

    As far as I can tell if the child proof lock are OFF the only way to exit from the back seat from the inside is to manually flip the lock level on the rear door and then pull the handle. If you just pull the handle nothing happens and the rear passanger feels trapped. Not a very smart design.

    Of course the driver can unlock all doors and the the rear passengers are free. But that is something I never remember.
