Conditions affecting operation

The smart access system with push-button start uses weak radio waves. In the fol- lowing situations, the communication between electronic key and the vehicle may be affected, preventing the smart access system with push-button start and wireless remote control from operating properly. (Way of coping: →P. 744)

• When the electronic key battery is depleted

• Near a TV tower, electric power plant, gas station, radio station, large display, airport or other facility that generates strong radio waves or electrical noise

• When carrying a portable radio, cellular phone, cordless phone or other wire- less communication devices

• When the electronic key is in contact with, or is covered by the following metal- lic objects

• Cards to which aluminum foil is attached

• Cigarette boxes that have aluminum foil inside

• Metallic wallets or bags

• Coins

• Hand warmers made of metal

• Media such as CDs and DVDs

• When multiple electronic keys are in the vicinity

• When another wireless key (that emits radio waves) is being used nearby

• When carrying the electronic key together with the following devices that emit radio waves

• Another vehicle’s electronic key or a wireless key that emits radio waves

• Personal computers or personal digital assistants (PDAs)

• Digital audio players

• Portable game systems

• If window tint with a metallic content or metallic objects are attached to the rear window

Note for the entry function

• Even when the electronic key is within the effective range (detection areas), the system may not operate properly in the following cases:

• The electronic key is too close to the window, near the ground, or in a high place when the doors are locked or unlocked.

• The electronic key is near the ground or in a high place, or too close to the window when the glass hatch is opened.

• The electronic key is on the instrument panel, luggage cover or floor, or in the glove box.

• Do not leave the electronic key on top of the instrument panel or near the door pockets when exiting the vehicle. Depending on the radio wave reception con- ditions, it may be detected by the antenna outside the cabin and the door will become lockable from the outside, possibly trapping the electronic key inside the vehicle.

• As long as the electronic key is within the effective range, the doors may be locked or unlocked by anyone. However, only the doors detecting the elec- tronic key can be used to unlock the vehicle.

• The doors may lock or unlock if the electronic key is within the effective range and a large amount of water splashes on the door handle, such as in the rain or in a car wash. The doors will automatically be locked after approximately 60 seconds if a door is not opened and closed.

• If the wireless remote control is used to lock the doors when the electronic key is near the vehicle, there is a possibility that the door may not be unlocked by the entry function. (Use the wireless remote control to unlock the doors.)

Note for locking the doors

• Touching the door lock sensor while wearing gloves may delay or prevent lock operation. Remove the gloves and touch the lock sensor again.

• When the lock operation is performed using the lock sensor, recognition signals will be shown up to two consecutive times. After this, no recognition signals will be given.

• If the door handle becomes wet while the electronic key is within the effective range, the door may lock and unlock repeatedly. Place the key in a position 6 ft.

(2 m) or more separate from the vehicle while the vehicle is being washed. (Take care to ensure that the key is not stolen.) • If the electronic key is inside the vehicle and a door handle becomes wet during a car wash, a message may be shown on the multi-information display and a buzzer will sound outside the vehicle. To turn off the alarm, lock all the doors.

• The lock sensor may not work properly if it comes into contact with ice, snow, mud, etc. Clean the lock sensor and attempt to operate it again, or use the lock sensor on the lower part of the door handle.

• Fingernails may scrape against the door during operation of the door handle.

Be careful not to injure fingernails or damage the surface of the door.

Note for the unlocking function

• Gripping the door handle when wearing a glove may not unlock the door.

• A sudden approach to the effective range or door handle may prevent the doors from being unlocked. In this case, return the door handle to the original position and check that the doors unlock before pulling the door handle again.

• If there is another electronic key in the detection area, it may take slightly longer to unlock the doors after the door handle is gripped.

When the vehicle is not driven for extended periods

• To prevent theft of the vehicle, do not leave the electronic key within 6 ft. (2 m) of the vehicle.

• The smart access system with push-button start can be deactivated in advance.

To operate the system properly

Make sure to carry the electronic key when operating the system. Do not get the electronic key too close to the vehicle when operating the system from the outside of the vehicle.

Depending on the position and holding condition of the electronic key, the key may not be detected correctly and the system may not operate properly. (The alarm may go off accidentally, or the door lock prevention may not function.)

If the smart access system with push-button start does not operate properly

• Locking and unlocking the doors: Use the mechanical key.

• Starting the engine.

Electronic key battery depletion

• The standard battery life is 1 to 2 years.

• If the battery becomes low, an alarm will sound in the cabin when the engine stops.

• As the electronic key always receives radio waves, the battery will become depleted even if the electronic key is not used. The following symptoms indicate that the electronic key battery may be depleted. Replace the battery when nec- essary.

• The smart access system with push-button start or the wireless remote con- trol does not operate.

• The detection area becomes smaller.

• The LED indicator on the key surface does not turn on.

• To avoid serious deterioration, do not leave the electronic key within 3 ft. (1 m) of the following electrical appliances that produce a magnetic field:

• TVs

• Personal computers

• Cellular phones, cordless phones and battery chargers

• Recharging cellular phones or cordless phones

• Glass top ranges

• Table lamps
