Keeping the Key Safe

Replacing a Smart Key may be costly.

We advise you to keep a spare Smart Key and the key-number plate in a safe place. If you record the key number in more than one place, do not record it in a way that can be easily identified and associated with the vehicle. For example, don’t leave the number somewhere that can be accessed by a valet. It is wise to keep a copy of the key number outside of the vehicle.
