Low Smart Entry Remote Signal Strength

Co
ntrols

Low Smart Entry Remote Signal Strength

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

In the following cases, locking/unlocking the doors, opening the trunk, 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.

1

Low Smart Entry Remote Signal Strength

Communication between the smart entry remote and 
the vehicle consumes the smart entry remote’s 
battery.
The smart entry remote battery lasts about two years. 
This changes by how often you use the remote. 
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.

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 door handle wearing gloves, the door 
sensor may be slow to respond or may not respond 
by unlocking the doors.

After locking the door, wait at least two seconds 
before unlocking it by gripping the handle.

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 with the smart
