If you open the driver’s door when the power mode is set to ACCESSORY, a warning 
buzzer sounds.

Warning buzzers may sound from inside or/
and outside the vehicle to remind you that the 
smart entry remote is out of the vehicle. If the 
buzzer continues even after the remote is put 
back inside, place it to be within its 
operational range.

When the power mode is in ON

If the smart entry remote is taken out of the 
vehicle, and the driver’s door is closed, 
warning buzzers sound from both inside and 
outside the vehicle. A warning message on 
the i-MID notifies the driver inside that the 
remote is out.

Smart Entry Remote Reminder

When the smart entry remote is within the system’s 
operational range, and the driver’s door is closed, the 
warning function cancels.

If the smart entry remote is taken out of the vehicle 
after the engine has been started, you can no longer 
change the ENGINE START/STOP button mode or 
restart the engine. Always make sure if the remote is 
in your vehicle when you operate the ENGINE 
START/STOP
 button.

Removing the smart entry remote from the vehicle 
through a window does not activate the warning 
buzzer.

Do not put the smart entry remote on the dashboard 
or in the glove box. It may cause the warning buzzer 
to go off. Under some other conditions that can 
prevent the vehicle from locating the remote, the 
warning buzzer may also go off even if the remote is 
within the system’s operational range.
