Opening All 4 Doors with Comfort Access

Can you open all 4 doors without the fob from the driver's side? I noticed that if I open the passenger side door with comfort access, it opens all 4. But not if I approach the car to open the driver's side.

Yes, In your settings menu look for door locks and then change it from the setting that opens drivers door only first to all doors.

Thanks chip2058! That did it. I could never have gotten that from the manual.

You can also touch the drivers side handle twice to unlock all 4 doors.

That doesn't work. You don't touch to unlock, you grasp the inner handle but tapping or grasping twice doesn't actuate the rest of the locks (just tried it)

Correct. Don't touch the ribbed/raised area, that's for locking and closing windows.

FYI, To unlock the door/s you don't even have to grasp the door handle.
If you need to get into the locked back seat area you can unlock the doors just by putting your fingers into the gap between the drivers door handle, no need to grab the handle.

Also, if you shut you car off and get out, but then realize you need to get something from the rear seat but it's locked, there's no need to get back in the car and push the unlock button on the console.
All you need to do is simply insert your fingers into the door handle gap of the drivers door. It will unlock all the other doors.

I know this and if you do it on the passenger side it works fine but if you dont have you settings set to unlock all from drivers' door, doing so from the driver's side still only unlocks the drivers door.

Sorry, my comment wasn't directed at you. I intended to be an FYI for anyone who may learn from it.
