Locking and Unlocking the Doors

Key Types and Functions

This vehicle comes with the following keys:

Use the keys to start and stop the engine, and to lock and unlock the doors and 
hatch. You can also use the remote transmitter to lock and unlock the doors and 
hatch.

The built-in key can be used to lock/unlock the 
doors when the smart entry remote battery 
becomes weak and the power door lock/
unlock operation is disabled.

To remove the built-in key, slide the release 
knob and then pull out the key. To reinstall 
the built-in key, push the built-in key into the 
smart entry remote until it clicks.

1

Key Types and Functions

All the keys have an immobilizer system. The 
immobilizer system helps to protect against vehicle 
theft.

Immobilizer System P. 168

Follow the advice below to prevent damage to the 
keys:

Do not leave the keys in direct sunlight, or in 
locations with high temperature or high humidity.

Do not drop the keys or set heavy objects on them.

Keep the keys away from liquids, dust and sand.

Do not take the keys apart except for replacing the 
battery.

If the circuits in the keys are damaged, the engine 
may not start, and the remote transmitter may not 
work.
If the keys do not work properly, have them 
inspected by a dealer.

You can remotely start the engine using the smart 
entry remote with remote engine starter.

Low Smart Entry Remote Signal Strength

*

The vehicle transmits radio waves to locate the smart entry remote when locking/
unlocking the doors and hatch, or to start the engine.

In the following cases, locking/unlocking the doors and hatch, or starting the engine 
may be inhibited or operation may be unstable:
• Strong radio waves are being transmitted by nearby equipment.
• You are carrying the smart entry remote together with telecommunications 

equipment, laptop computers, cell phones, or wireless devices.

• A metallic object is touching or covering the smart entry remote.

Key Number Tag

1

Key Number Tag

Keep the key number tag separate from the key in a 
safe place outside of your vehicle.
If you wish to purchase an additional key, contact a 
dealer.

If you lose your key and you cannot start the engine, 
contact a dealer.

1

Low Smart Entry Remote Signal Strength

*

Communication between the smart entry remote and 
the vehicle consumes the smart entry remote’s 
battery.
Battery life is about two years, but this varies 
depending on regularity of use.
The battery is consumed whenever the smart entry 
remote is receiving strong radio waves. Avoid placing 
it near electrical appliances such as televisions and 
personal computers.

Even if you are not carrying the smart entry remote, 
you can lock/unlock the doors and hatch while 
someone else with the remote is within range.

The door may be unlocked if the door handle is 
covered with water in heavy rain or in a car wash if 
the smart entry remote is within range.

If you grip a front door handle wearing gloves, the 
door sensor may be slow to respond or may not 
respond by unlocking the doors.

After locking the door, you have up to two seconds 
during which you can pull the door handle to 
confirm whether the door is locked. If you need to 
unlock the door immediately after locking it, wait 
at least two seconds before gripping the handle, 
otherwise the door will not unlock.

The door might not open if you pull it immediately 
after gripping the door handle. Grip the handle 
again and confirm that the door is unlocked before 
pulling the handle.

Even within the 32 inches (80 cm) radius, you may 
not be able to lock/unlock the doors and hatch 
with the smart entry remote if it is above or below 
the outside handle.

The smart entry remote may not operate if it is too 
close to the door and door glass.

can be customized using the audio/information 
screen or driver information interface.
