2006 ION-2 Sedan
1995 SW2
Default Unlocking all doors from outside with key

I'm a new owner of a used 2006 Ion 2 sedan, and it came without an owners manual. I've ordered one online but before it gets here I thought I would join this forum to see if you kind folks could help me out.

Is it possible somehow to unlock all the doors from the outside using the key in the driver's door? I know I can open the door and hit the button, but I was wondering if there was some secret way to get all 4 doors unlocked at one time with the key from outside.

Thanks for any insights you can offer me. I love the way this car handles and am very happy replacing my 1995 SW2 with it (it's burning a quart of oil every 2 days).

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

No that I'm aware of. Neither on my base model 2006 2 or my wife's 2007 2 (with RKE) does that work. I think it was one feature from the older Saturns they should have kept.

Thanks -- I suspected as much but wanted to be sure I wasn't overlooking something.

on my wife's SUV you roll the key in the unlock direction TWICE - first one will do driver's, second all others.

Yeah SATURN does the weridest things. The First Gen (1991-1995) S-Series came with the key that can unlock the doors from the door lock and the new Vue also can unlock the doors with the key.

No RKE? That's one reason I wanted the key fob - to be able to unlock all the doors with a button press.

Still, my SL2 was really basic and didn't have RKE or even power locks.

Sucked getting in and reaching over to unlock 3 other doors from the inside or checking to make sure all doors were locked and having to lock them manually.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
