The smart key system uses Radio Frequency (RF) transmissions that could interfere with implanted medical devices. To avoid any possibility of interference between the system and the device, make sure that the device is kept at a safe distance of at least 22 cm away from any transmitter. In rare circumstances, interference may cause an implanted medical device to malfunction.

For more information on the locations of the security system transmitters, see SMART KEY SYSTEM TRANSMITTERS.


To prevent accidental or unauthorised operation, never leave children or animals unattended in the vehicle. The vehicle can be operated when the smart key is inside the vehicle.


The operational range of the smart key varies considerably, depending on atmospheric conditions and interference from other transmitting devices.


If any door, or the tailgate, is unlocked ten times within a short period, the locking latch disables for approximately 1 minute.


A replacement smart key can be obtained only from a retailer/authorised repairer. The retailer/authorised repairer will require proof of identification and ownership. Notify a retailer/authorised repairer immediately if a smart key is lost or stolen.

The vehicle is supplied with two smart keys. The smart keys act as remote controls for the locking and alarm system. The smart keys allow the vehicle to be locked, unlocked, and driven without the use of a conventional key. Each smart key also has an emergency key inserted in the smart key body.

  1. Lock: Press to secure the vehicle. The vehicle single locks. If power-fold mirrors are enabled, the mirrors fold in. See SINGLE LOCKING, DOUBLE LOCKING, and DOOR MIRRORS. Press and hold to activate the global closing feature, if available. See GLOBAL CLOSING.

  2. Unlock: Press briefly to unlock the vehicle and disarm the alarm. The hazard warning lights flash twice to indicate that the vehicle is unlocked and the alarm is disarmed. The interior lights illuminate to assist entry to the vehicle. If power-fold mirrors are enabled, the mirrors unfold. Press and hold to activate the global opening feature, if available. SeeGLOBAL OPENING .

  3. Tailgate: Press briefly to release, open, or close the tailgate. If the vehicle is locked and armed, all of the other doors remain closed and the exterior alarm remains armed while the tailgate is open. When closing, if the vehicle is already locked and armed, the hazard warning lights flash after a few seconds. The warning lights confirm that the full alarm system has re-armed.


    Before closing the vehicle, make sure the smart key does not remain in the vehicle. The smart key may not be detected if kept inside a metal container, or if shielded by a device with a back-lit LCD screen. For example, a smartphone, laptop, including when inside a bag, or a games console. Also, if the vehicle is in an area of localised RF interference, it may not be detected. If the smart key is not detected inside the vehicle, the vehicle can be locked. The vehicle does not automatically unlock. The vehicle unlocks only with another valid smart key.

  4. Panic alarm:

    Press and hold for 3 seconds, or press three times within 3 seconds, to activate the horn and the hazard warning lights.

    Once active for more than 5 seconds, the alarm can be cancelled. Press the button and hold for 3 seconds, or press three times within 3 seconds.

    The panic alarm also cancels if a valid smart key is present when the START/STOP button is pressed.

  5. Headlights:

    When approaching the vehicle during darkness, press to switch on the headlights for approach illumination. Press again to switch approach illumination off.

    The approach illumination preset delay period is 30 seconds. The delay period can be configured to provide illumination lasting between 0 and 240 seconds. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.

  6. Emergency key blade access: Push the release button and pull to withdraw the key blade.

  7. Emergency key blade.

  8. Door lock cover: If the smart key fails to open the vehicle, insert the key blade into the slot at the base of the driver's door lock cover. Apply slight downward pressure to the top of the cover and gently lever the key blade upward. Carefully rotate the door lock cover upward, to lever the cover off the securing lugs.

  9. Door lock: Insert the key blade into the exposed lock and turn to operate the lock. The alarm sounds until the smart key is positioned correctly to disarm the alarm. See ENGINE START BACKUP.


    When replacing the door lock cover, locate the top securing lugs first. Press down and inward to locate the single bottom lug. The lug clicks into the locked position. Check the security of the cover. An insecure cover is likely to fall off while the vehicle is moving.
