General Information
You can unlock and lock the vehicle without taking the keys out of your pocket or purse when your passive key is within 3 ft (1 m) of your vehicle. This key uses a sensor on the back of the door handle for unlocking and a separate sensor on the face of each door handle for locking.
The system does not function if:
  • Your vehicle battery has no charge.
  • The passive key frequencies are jammed.
  • The passive key battery has no charge.
Note:   The system may not function if the passive key is close to metal objects or electronic devices, for example keys or a cell phone.
Note:   If the system does not function, you will need to use the key blade to lock and unlock your vehicle.
