KEYLESS START BACKUP

If the vehicle has been unlocked using the emergency key blade, or the Smart key is not detected by the vehicle, it will be necessary to use the Keyless start backup feature to disarm the alarm and start the engine.

The Keyless start backup feature can only be used when the message Smart Key Not Found - Refer To Handbook is displayed in the Message center.

  1. Position the Smart key flat against the facia, in the position shown.

  2. Press the brake pedal firmly.

  3. Press and release the engine START/STOP button.

Once the engine has started, the brake pedal can be released, if it is safe to do so.

If the Smart key is not recognized, or the engine still fails to start, consult a Retailer/Authorized Repairer.
