The start backup procedure can be used to disarm the alarm and start the vehicle if either of the following occurs:

  • The vehicle is unlocked using the emergency key blade.

  • The vehicle does not detect the smart key.

The start backup feature can only be used when the instrument panel displays Place Smart Key as shown, and press start button.

To carry out the start backup procedure:

  1. Position the smart key flat against the underside of the steering column.


    There are markings on the steering column to help locate the correct position.

  2. While holding the smart key in position, firmly press the brake pedal.

  3. Press and release the START/STOP button on the dashboard.

Once the electric motor is enabled, a drive selection can be made, if it is safe to do so.

If the smart key is not recognized, or the electric motor fails to start, consult a retailer/authorized repairer.
