Backseat door locks wont open from the inside
 
Help! People in my backseat cant open the doors from the inside. How to I fix this? I'm guessing its child safety locks?

Search function on this forum .... or the nice guy who posted the PDF from your trucks owners manual is your friend.

Ditto on the child safety locks. I once locked myself in the back seat that way. The arrow on the dial can point to "unlock" while the mechanism is still in "lock." Use a screwdriver and apply some torque to it (in both back doors) to make sure it's as far as it can go.

Also, pulling a rear-door handle doesn't unlock the door. That can be disconcerting. My passengers have had to learn to unlock the door the old-fashioned way, by pulling up on the door lock stem.

Can't you set doors to unlock when you put the car in park?

Door handles not unlocking back doors has been pretty common for decades. It was one of the early safety items designed to protect kids.

I wish. You can set the doors to unlock when you put it in PARK or NEUTRAL and then open the driver's door. Sometimes I don't open my door quickly enough for my rear-seat passengers.

Or....

Open the rear door. Near the door latch is a small white nylon screw head with symbols for "Lock" and "Unlock" imprinted in the door metal. Use the tip of your key (remove from FOB if necessary) in the screw head slot to rotate to the Unlock position.
