Keyless entry allows the vehicle to be opened if a smart key is within 1 m of the door handle or the boot.


The smart key may not be detected if it is inside a metal container. The smart key may not be detected if it 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 keyless entry, keyless locking, or push button starting.


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

For information concerning the location of the security system transmitters, see SMART KEY SYSTEM TRANSMITTERS.

The keyless entry sensor is located on the inner surface of the door handle. Grip and pull the door handle to open the door. The vehicle unlocks, the alarm system disarms, and the hazard warning lights flash twice to confirm unlocking. If the power-fold mirrors are enabled, they fold out.


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. If a valid smart key is not detected, the instrument panel displays the message, Smart key not found. If this situation occurs, use a valid smart key to carry out the engine backup procedure. See KEYLESS START BACKUP.

The security system fitted to this vehicle is Thatcham category 1 approved and meets EU regulations 97/116 and EU directive 95/56 EC.
