SMART KEY OPERATION

Smart key:
WARNING

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. The distance should be at least 9 in (22 cm) away from any transmitter. In rare circumstances, interference may cause an implanted medical device to malfunction. Malfunction to an implanted medical device may cause death. See SMART KEY TRANSMITTER LOCATIONS.

WARNING

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. Unauthorized operation may lead to serious injury or death.

NOTES

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

NOTES

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

NOTES

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

NOTES

The security system disarms automatically when the vehicle is unlocked with a smart key. However, if a door is not opened within 40 seconds, the security system re-engages the locks and the alarm (where fitted) re-arms. Automatic re-locking and re-arming is a precautionary action to protect the vehicle when it is unintentionally left unlocked.

The vehicle is supplied with two smart keys. The smart keys act as remote controls for the locking and alarm systems. 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 housed behind a slide-off cover. See KEYLESS ENTRY, KEYLESS LOCKING and STARTING THE VEHICLE.

  1. Lock: Press to secure the vehicle. The vehicle single locks. If power-fold mirrors are enabled, the mirrors fold in. See SINGLE LOCKING and DOOR MIRRORS.

  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.

    NOTES

    Make sure the smart key does not remain in the vehicle before closing the trunk.

  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. Intrusion and inclination sensing systems disable until the tailgate is closed again. When closing, if the vehicle is already locked and armed, the hazard warning lights flash after a few seconds. The flash confirms that the full alarm system has re-armed. An audible tone sounds when the vehicle is locked.

    NOTES

    Make sure the smart key does not remain in the vehicle before closing the front storage compartment or trunk.

  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 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 release: Press the tab to withdraw the emergency key.

  7. Emergency key: See EMERGENCY LOCKING.

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

    NOTES

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

  9. Keyless single lock: Press the lock button on the door handle to single lock the vehicle. All door handles retract to the flush position. See SINGLE LOCKING.

  10. Keyless double lock: After single locking, press the lock button on the door handle again within 3 seconds to double lock the vehicle. See KEYLESS LOCKING. Double locking is not available in all markets.

  11. 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, push on the front end of the handle, which presents the rear of the handle. Pull the handle out to the deployed position to give access to the lock barrel. To unlock, turn the key blade clockwise and release. To lock, turn the key blade counter-clockwise and release.

    NOTES

    The alarm sounds until the smart key's unlock button is pressed or the smart key is positioned correctly inside the vehicle. See DEACTIVATING THE ALARM WHEN TRIGGERED.

    NOTES

    The operation locks all of the doors, but does not arm the alarm.

NOTES

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.

NOTES

The smart key may not be detected if kept inside a metal container, or 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 localized RF interference, the smart key may not be detected.

NOTES

A replacement smart key can be obtained only from a retailer/authorized repairer. The retailer/authorized repairer requires proof of identification and vehicle ownership.

NOTES

Notify a retailer/authorized repairer immediately if a smart key is lost or stolen.
