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 1 m of your vehicle. Passive entry 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:
  • The vehicle battery has no charge.
  • The key battery has no charge.
  • The key frequencies have jammed.
Note:   The system may not function if the key is close to metal objects or electronic devices, for example keys or a cell phone.
Note:   If the system does not function, use the key blade to lock and unlock your vehicle.   See   Remote Control
Unlocking Using Passive Entry
Unlocking Using Passive Entry
With your passive key within 1 m of your vehicle, touch the unlock sensor on the back of the door handle for a brief period and then pull on the door handle to unlock, being careful not to touch the lock sensor at the same time, or to pull the door handle too quickly. The system requires a brief delay to authenticate your passive key.
Locking Using Passive Entry
Lock the Car (Passive Entry Passive Start System)
With your passive key within 1 m of your vehicle, touch the outer door handle lock sensor for approximately one second to lock, being careful not to touch the unlock sensor on the back of the door handle at the same time. After locking, you can immediately pull on the door handle to confirm locking occurred without inadvertently unlocking.
Note:   Do not use the outside door handle as an anchor-point for the cargo strap.
