  • When the electronic key has been left within approximately 3 ft. (1 m) of the vehicle for 10 minutes or more

The system will resume operation when...

  • The vehicle is locked using the door handle lock switch.
  • The vehicle is locked/unlocked using the wireless remote control function  or the mechanical key.
  • Electronic key battery depletion

  • The standard battery life is 1 to 2 years. (The battery becomes depleted even if the electronic key is not used.) If the smart key system or the wireless remote control function does not operate, or the detection area becomes smaller, the battery may be depleted. Replace the battery when necessary.
  • If the battery becomes low, an alarm will sound in the cabin when the engine stops.
  • To avoid serious deterioration, do not leave the electronic key within 3 ft.

    (1 m) of the following electrical appliances that produce a magnetic field.

  •  TVs
  •  Personal computers
  •  Recharging cellular phones or cordless phones
  •  Table lamps
  • To operate the system properly

Make sure to carry the electronic key when operating the system. Do not get the electronic key too close to the vehicle when operating the system from the outside of the vehicle.

Depending on the position and holding condition of the electronic key, the key may not be detected correctly and the system may not operate properly.

(The alarm may go off accidentally, or the door lock prevention may not function.)

  • Note for the smart key system

  • Even when the electronic key is within the effective range (detection areas), the system may not operate properly in the following cases:
  •  The electronic key is too close to the window or outside door handle, near the ground, or in a high place when the doors are locked or unlocked.
  •  The electronic key is near the ground or in a high place, or too close to the rear bumper center when the back door is locked or unlocked.
  •  The electronic key is on the instrument panel, floor or in the glove box when the engine is started or “ENGINE START STOP” switch modes are changed.
  • Do not leave the electronic key on top of the instrument panel or near the door pockets when exiting the vehicle. Depending on the radio wave reception conditions, it may be detected by the antenna outside the cabin and the door will become lockable from the outside, possibly trapping the electronic key inside the vehicle.
  • As long as the electronic key is within the effective range, the doors may be locked or unlocked by anyone.
  • Even if the electronic key is not inside the vehicle, it may be possible to start the engine if the electronic key is near the window.
  • The doors may unlock if a large amount of water splashes on the door handle, such as in the rain or in a car wash. (The doors will automatically be locked after approximately 60 seconds if the doors are not opened and closed.)
  • Gripping the door handle when wearing a glove may not unlock the door.
  • If the wireless remote control is used to lock the doors when the electronic key is near the vehicle, there is a possibility that the door may not be unlocked by the smart key system. (Use the wireless remote control to unlock the doors.)
  • A sudden approach to the effective range or door handle operation may prevent the doors from being unlocked. In this case, return the door handle to the original position and check that the doors unlock before pulling the door handle.
  • When the vehicle is not driven for extended periods

To prevent theft of the vehicle, do not leave the electronic key within 6 ft. (2 m) of the vehicle.
