SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

CAUTION:

If using a pacemaker, be sure to read the manual of the pacemaker before using the key, as the radio waves of the key may affect the pacemaker.

1. SMART KEY SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

(a) In addition to conventional mechanical key and wireless door lock control functions, the smart key system enables door locking/unlocking, steering lock releasing, engine control system starting and back door opening without operating the key. The only requirement is that the key is in the possession of the user.

  • This system is controlled by the certification ECU. When the certification ECU detects the presence of the key in one of the detection areas, it identifies and checks the ID code, and outputs operation signals to the related ECU in accordance with their functions.
  • The detection areas are formed by 6 antennas.

13. BATTERY SAVING

(a) When the smart key system (for Entry Function) is operating, the vehicle performs key detection operations every 0.25 seconds. Therefore, if the vehicle left as is for a long period of time, the battery may become fully depleted. The following controls help reduce the rate at which the battery is depleted.

(1) If the engine is not started for 5 days or more, periodic signal transmission from the electrical key antennas stops. However, the doors can still be unlocked by touching the unlock sensor of a front door outside handle assembly.

(2) If the engine is not started for 14 days or more, the lock and unlock sensors of the front passenger side door outside handle assembly are disabled. Therefore, only the unlock sensor of the front door outside handle assembly of the driver side door can be used to unlock the doors.

(3) If 10 minutes or more elapse while the key is in the detection area (including the vehicle interior), smart key system (for Entry Function) control stops operating.

(b) To restore operation of the smart key system (for Entry Function), perform any of the following operations.

(1) While carrying the key, touch the lock and unlock sensor of the front door outside handle assembly of the driver side door and perform a door lock or unlock operation.

(2) Lock or unlock the doors with the wireless operation.

(3) Insert the mechanical key into the door key cylinder of the driver side door and lock or unlock the doors.

(c) Key battery and vehicle battery saving function:

While the smart key system is operating, if the key is constantly located within the vehicle exterior detection area of the doors, the system maintains periodic communication with the key. Therefore, if the vehicle remains parked in that state for a long time, the key battery and the vehicle battery may be drained. For this reason, if this state continues for more than 10 minutes, the smart key system is automatically deactivated.

Reinstatement Conditions:

  • A wireless door lock control signal (lock, unlock) is input and the ID code matches.
  • A user carries the key and touches the lock sensor on a door outside handle assembly.
  • The driver door is locked or unlocked by the mechanical key.

14. KEY DIAGNOSTIC MODE (Using the Techstream)

HINT:

Key diagnostic mode checks if the electrical key transmitter within a selected antenna detection area is operating normally. The results are output through the wireless door lock buzzer (in the front fender).

(a) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(b) Turn the engine switch on (IG).

(c) Turn the Techstream on.

(d) Enter the following menus: Body Electrical / Smart Key / Utility / Key Communication Check.
