You can
a child lock on a car door using a few different methods depending on the type of system you have.
If you have an electronic locking system, disable them using a switch. You can find the switch either on your dashboard or on the armrests of the front doors. If you can’t find the switch in your car, check your owner’s manual to find the exact location in your car.
If you don’t have an electronic locking system, open the back passenger door of your car and switch it to an unlocked position. Repeat the process for both rear doors.
This will work for most cars, but some cars have model-specific steps to disable child safety locks. If these two methods don’t work for you, check your owner’s manual to see if the instructions differ.
