Interior luggage compartment release

Interior luggage compartment release  - Locks and Security - Lincoln MKS Owners Manual - Lincoln MKS

Your vehicle is equipped with a mechanical interior luggage compartment release handle that provides a means of escape for children and adults in the event they become locked inside the luggage compartment.

Adults are advised to familiarize themselves with the operation and location of the release handle.

To open the luggage compartment door (lid) from within the luggage compartment, pull the illuminated T shaped handle and push up on the trunk lid. The handle is composed of a material that will glow for hours in darkness following brief exposure to ambient light.

The T shaped handle will be located either on the luggage compartment door (lid) or inside the luggage compartment near the tail lamps.

WARNING: Keep vehicle

WARNING: Keep vehicle doors and luggage compartment locked and keep keys and remote transmitters out of a childs reach. Unsupervised children could lock themselves in the trunk and risk injury. Children should be taught not to play in vehicles.

WARNING: Do not leave children, unreliable adults, or animals unattended in the vehicle. On hot days, the temperature in the trunk or vehicle interior can rise very quickly. Exposure of people or animals to these high temperatures for even a short time can cause death or serious heat-related injuries, including brain damage. Small children are particularly at risk.
