If the vehicle has been unlocked using the emergency key blade, or the Smart key is not detected by the vehicle, it will be necessary to use the Keyless start backup feature to disarm the alarm and start the engine.

The Keyless start backup feature can only be used when the following message Smart Key Not Recognised - Reposition or Place As Shown and Press Start Button is displayed in the Message centre.

  1. Position the Smart key flat against the side of the steering column with the buttons facing outwards.


    The steering column has markings on the side to aid placement of the Smart key.

  2. Automatic transmission: Press the brake pedal firmly.

    Manual transmission: Press the clutch pedal firmly.

  3. Press and release the engine START/STOP button.

Once the engine has started, the brake pedal (or the clutch pedal for manual transmission) can be released, if it is safe to do so.

If the Smart key is not recognised, or the engine still fails to start, consult a Dealer/Authorised Repairer.
