IF THE ENGINE FAILS TO START

NOTES

If the engine fails to crank when the engine START/STOP button is pressed and there has been a recent collision, the fuel system inertia switch may have been tripped. Seek qualified assistance.

Make sure that the brake pedal is not pressed. Switch on the ignition and check the Instrument panel for warning lamps and the Message center for warning messages (see WARNING AND INFORMATION MESSAGES).

Switch off the ignition.

To reset the immobilizer and alarm system, use a valid Smart key to lock and unlock the vehicle (see UNLOCKING THE VEHICLE).

If the engine persistently fails to start:

  1. With a valid Smart key inside the vehicle make sure that the brake pedal is NOT pressed.

  2. Make sure that Park (P) or Neutral (N) is selected.

  3. Press and hold the engine START/STOP button until the warning lamps illuminate.

  4. Slowly press the accelerator pedal fully and hold it in the fully pressed position.

  5. Press and release the engine START/STOP button. The engine will begin to crank.

  6. Release the accelerator pedal when the engine starts.

If the engine still fails to start, or fails to crank, consult a Retailer/Authorized Repairer.
