The right touch can open doors.
Your key fob couldn’t be easier to use. Because you don’t even have to use it to lock or unlock your car’s front doors or hatch. Just make sure you have it with you. The radio transmitter in your key fob and the sensor in the driver’s door will take care of the rest.
NOTE: You can customize which doors unlock when you stand near the driver’s door with your key fob. For example, you can program only the driver’s door to unlock, or all doors to unlock. Click here to learn more.
Before you remote start, make sure that:
- The car is in park.
- All doors (including the fuel door) hatch, and hood are shut.
- Hazard lights are off.
- Vehicle theft alarm is inactive.
- Battery is at an acceptable charge level.
Then you can remote start:
- Press the lock button.
- Double-press the x2 button (A) on the key fob.
- Your car will shut off if you hit the unlock button, open the door, or just have your hand in the handle.
- After starting your car remotely, it will only run for ten minutes.
- If you use remote start twice within ten minutes, you must start the car manually.
- If you hit unlock, the car will lock automatically 30 seconds later if you haven’t entered the car.
1Some heavy purses, bags, etc. may block the signal from your car to your key fob, preventing keyless access from working.
- Do not start or run an engine in a closed garage or confined area. Exhaust gas contains carbon monoxide (CO) which is odorless and colorless. Carbon monoxide is poisonous and can cause serious injury or death when inhaled.
- Keep Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitters away from children. Operation of the Remote Start System, windows, door locks or other controls could cause serious injury or death.
- For personal security and safety in the event of an accident, lock the vehicle doors as you drive as well as when you park and leave the vehicle.
- When leaving the vehicle, always remove the key fob from the ignition and lock your vehicle.
- Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle.
- Allowing children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of reasons. A child or others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should be warned not to touch the parking brake, brake pedal or the shift lever.
- Do not leave the key fob in or near the vehicle, and do not leave Keyless Enter-N-Go in the ACC or ON/RUN mode. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move the vehicle.
