Any person fitted with an implanted medical device should make sure that the device is kept at a distance of at least 9 in (22 cm) away from any transmitter mounted in the vehicle. This is to avoid any possibility of interference between the system and the device.

Interference may cause the implanted medical device to malfunction, causing serious injury or death. See SMART KEY SYSTEM TRANSMITTERS.


To prevent accidental or unauthorized 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 luggage compartment, is unlocked 10 times within a short period, the locking latch is disabled for approximately 1 minute.

The vehicle is supplied with two smart keys. The smart keys act as remote controls for the locking and alarm system. They allow the vehicle to be locked, unlocked, and driven without the use of a conventional key. Each smart key also has an emergency key housed behind a slide-off cover. See PASSIVE ENTRY, KEYLESS LOCKING and STARTING THE VEHICLE.

  1. Lock: Press to secure the vehicle. If power-fold mirrors are enabled, they fold in. See LOCK CONFIRMATION.

  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, they unfold.

  3. Luggage compartment: Press briefly to release, open or close the luggage compartment. If the vehicle is locked and armed, the security system remains active while the luggage compartment is open.

    When closing, if the vehicle is already locked and armed, the hazard warning lights flash after a few seconds to confirm that the alarm system is re-armed. See OPENING AND CLOSING THE POWERED TAILGATE.


    Make sure the smart key does not remain in the vehicle before closing. It may not be detected if it is inside a metal container, or is shielded by a device with a back-lit LCD screen, e.g., a smartphone. Also, if the vehicle is in an area of localized Radio Frequency (RF) interference, it may not be detected. If the smart key is not detected inside the vehicle, the vehicle locks. The vehicle does not automatically unlock. The vehicle now 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 lights.

    Once active for more than 5 seconds, the alarm can be canceled. 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. Front storage compartment: Press briefly to open the front storage compartment.

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

  7. Emergency key blade.

  8. Keyless unlock: Press to unlock and disarm the vehicle. The door handles deploy on the unlocked doors. See PASSIVE ENTRY.


    A handle in the retracted flush position indicates a locked door or a vehicle speed above 8 km/h (5 mph).

  9. Keyless single lock: Press the rear of the door handle to single lock the vehicle. All door handles retract to the flush position. See SINGLE LOCKING and KEYLESS LOCKING.

  10. Emergency door unlock: If the smart key and keyless entry fail to open the vehicle, insert the key blade into the lock barrel behind the driver's door handle. To access the lock barrel press or pull on the front end of the handle which presents the rear of the handle. Pull the handle out to the deployed position, giving access to the lock barrel. To unlock, turn the key blade clockwise and release.


    The alarm sounds until the smart key's unlock button is pressed or the smart key is positioned correctly inside the vehicle. See START BACKUP.

    To lock, turn the key blade clockwise release.


    Doing so locks all of the doors, but does not arm the alarm.


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