PASSIVE ENTRY

CAUTION

If a Smart key is lost, a replacement can be obtained and reprogrammed to the vehicle by a Retailer/Authorized Repairer. Notify a Retailer/Authorized Repairer as soon as a Smart key is lost or stolen and have the remaining Smart key(s) reprogrammed.

Passive entry allows the vehicle to be unlocked and disarmed by simply operating the door handle, provided the Smart key is within 3 feet (1 meter).

The Smart key needs only to be on the driver’s person; it does not need to be exposed or handled. However, the Smart key may not be detected if it is placed within a metal container, or is shielded by a device with a back-lit LCD screen such as a smart phone, laptop (including in a laptop bag), game console, etc. Keep the Smart key clear of such devices when attempting Passive entry or Keyless starting.

NOTES

Passive entry will unlock the vehicle in accordance with the current security setting (Single-point or Multi-point entry). However, if Single-point entry is the current setting and a door other than the driver’s door is opened first, both of the doors will unlock.

When all open doors have been closed, the system will search the vehicle's interior for a valid Smart key. If one is not detected, SMART KEY NOT FOUND REFER TO HANDBOOK will be displayed in the Message center. See KEYLESS START BACKUP.
