Re: unlocking all 4 doors with SmartKey

It is a bit cumbersome to set up, but once you set it, forget it.
(This presumes that it works the same as my '07.)
First, the two buttons under the steering column are for resetting the Tire Pressure Monitor (right one), and turning on and off the Smart Key System (left one); Also, they are different types of switch: The TPM is a momentary switch, and the SKS is a two position, push-on/push-off switch: The 'in' position is OFF (SKS disabled), and the 'out' position is ON (SKS enabled)~
Step 1. Push the left switch until it remains in the 'out' position. Your SKS system is enabled.
Step 2. Turn the car off if it is on.
Step 3. Be outside the car with the doors closed; Now examine the fob; The 'lock' button (with the closed padlock symbol), and the 'alarm' button (a speaker symbol with lines radiating from it) need to be pressed simultaneously for "about five seconds". If you can hear, you may hear one beep coming from inside the vehicle, but you should hear two double-beeps from outside the car. Release the buttons. If you hear a pattern other than two double-beeps, press the buttons again for another five seconds... And again if necessary. Once you hear the two double-beeps, the SKS should be in the 'all doors unlock' mode.
Step 4. Test it.
By the way, I pulled the key from the fob and keep the key on my key ring should the fob fail (hasn't yet). I put the fob in a little zip-lock bag to keep the dust and moisture out of it, and just move it from pants to pants. Don't forget to toss it on the dash when taking the car in for service; It can remain there while the car is in their care. You can't forget it because the car won't let itself be locked while the fob is inside the car.
