PASSIVE ENTRY

Passive entry allows the vehicle to be opened if a smart key is within 39 in (1 m) of the door handle or the exterior trunk release button.

NOTES

The smart key 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. Keep the smart key clear of such devices when attempting passive entry, passive locking or push button starting.

NOTES

The smart key needs only to be on the driver’s person, or in a non-metallic bag or briefcase. It does not need to be exposed or handled.

Press the button on the door handle to unlock the vehicle. The vehicle unlocks, the alarm system disarms, and the hazard warning lights flash twice as confirmation. The door handle deploys to the unlocked position. If power-fold mirrors are enabled, they unfold.

NOTES

When single-point entry is the current security setting and a door other than the driver’s door is opened first, all of the doors unlock.

After entering the vehicle, and all of the doors are closed, a scan is made of the interior for a valid smart key. The interior scan for lost key is only triggered if the power mode is in ignition or higher. If a valid smart key is not detected, the instrument panel displays a message. If this situation occurs, press the STOP/START button to carry out the start backup procedure. See START BACKUP.
