The keyless start backup procedure can be used to disarm the alarm and start the engine if either of the following occur:

  1. The vehicle is unlocked using the emergency key blade.

  2. The smart key is not detected by the vehicle.

The keyless start backup procedure can only be used if either of the following messages are displayed in the message centre:

  • Smart Key Not Recognised - Reposition.

  • Place As Shown and Press Start Button.

To initiate the keyless start backup procedure:

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


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

  2. While holding the smart key in position:

    Automatic transmission: Firmly press the brake pedal.

    Manual transmission: Firmly press the clutch pedal.

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

Once the engine starts, release the brake pedal (automatic transmission) or clutch pedal (manual transmission), if it is safe to do so.

If the smart key is not recognised, or the engine fails to start, consult a retailer/authorised repairer.
