Security System

Immobilizer System

The immobilizer system prevents a key that has not been pre-registered from 
starting the engine. Each key contains electronic transmitters that use electronic 
signals to verify the key.

Pay attention to the following when pressing the ENGINE START/STOP button:
• Do not allow objects that emit strong radio waves near the ENGINE START/

STOP button.

• Make sure the key is not covered by or touching a metal object.
• Do not bring a key from another vehicle’s immobilizer system near the ENGINE 

START/STOP button.

• Do not put the key near magnetic items. Electronic devices, such as televisions 

and audio systems emit strong magnetic fields. Note that even a key chain can 
become magnetic.

Security System Alarm

The security system alarm activates when the tailgate, hood, or doors are forcibly 
opened.
The alarm does not activate if the tailgate or doors are opened with the key, remote 
transmitter or smart entry system

*

.

However, the alarm activates if a door is opened with the key, then the hood is 
opened before the power mode is set to ON.

When the security system alarm activates

The horn sounds intermittently, and some exterior lights flash.

accidental movement of the vehicle. 
Always take the key with you whenever you leave the

Doing so may damage the system and make your 
vehicle inoperable.

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

Warning buzzers may sound from inside and/
or outside the vehicle to remind you that the 
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.

If the 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 driver 
information interface notifies the driver inside
