Follow the advice below to prevent damage to the 
keys:

Do not leave the keys in direct sunlight, or in 
locations with high temperature or high humidity.

Do not drop the keys or set heavy objects on them.

Keep the keys away from liquids, dust and sand.

Do not take the keys apart except for replacing the 
battery.

If the circuits in the keys are damaged, the power 
system may not activate, and the remote transmitter 
may not work.
If the keys do not work properly, have them 
inspected by a dealer.

You can remotely turn the power system on using the

Low Keyless Remote Signal Strength

Co

Low Keyless Remote Signal Strength

The vehicle transmits radio waves to locate the keyless remote when locking/
unlocking the doors, opening the trunk, or to activate the power system.

In the following cases, locking/unlocking the doors, opening the trunk, or activating 
the power system may be inhibited or operation may be unstable:

Strong radio waves are being transmitted by nearby equipment.

You are carrying the keyless remote together with telecommunications 
equipment, laptop computers, cell phones, or wireless devices.

A metallic object is touching or covering the keyless remote.

1

Low Keyless Remote Signal Strength

Communication between the keyless remote and the 
vehicle consumes the keyless remote’s battery.
Battery life is about two years, but this varies 
depending on regularity of use.
The battery is consumed whenever the keyless 
remote is receiving strong radio waves. Avoid placing 
it near electrical appliances such as televisions and 
personal computers.

Using the Keyless Access System

Do not leave the keyless remote in the vehicle 
when you get out. Carry it with you.

Even if you are not carrying the keyless remote, you 
can lock/unlock the doors while someone else with 
the remote is within range.

The door may be unlocked if the door handle is 
covered with water in heavy rain or in a car wash if 
the keyless remote is within range.

If you grip a front door handle or touch a door lock 
sensor wearing gloves, the door sensor may be 
slow to respond or may not respond by locking or 
unlocking the doors.

After locking the door, you have up to two seconds 
during which you can pull the door handle to 
confirm whether the door is locked. If you need to 
unlock the door immediately after locking it, wait 
at least two seconds before gripping the handle, 
otherwise the door will not unlock.

The door might not open if you pull it immediately 
after gripping the door handle. Grip the handle 
again and confirm that the door is unlocked before 
pulling the handle.

Even within the 32 inches (80 cm) radius, you may 
not be able to lock/unlock the doors with the keyless 
remote if it is above or below the outside handle.

The keyless remote may not operate if it is too close 
to the door and door glass.

The light flash, beep and door unlock mode settings 
can be customized using the audio/information 
screen.
