HOW TO OPERATE KEYLESS START 

Difficulty Level: Novice  |  Time Required: 5 Minutes  |  Tools Required: None  |  Related Parts, Products, Services or Technology: Key fob

Here’s how to use Keyless Start (if equipped) to start and shut down the vehicle. 


TO START THE VEHICLE:

With the key fob inside the vehicle and the vehicle in PARK:

  1. Press the brake pedal (and the clutch if a manual transmission).
  2. Press the Engine Stop/Start button. The green indicator on the button will illuminate and the engine will start.

Note: Pressing the Engine Stop/Start button without pressing the brake pedal will put the vehicle in ACCESSORY mode.

TO SHUT DOWN THE VEHICLE:

  1. Shift into PARK.
  2. Press the Engine Stop/Start button.


Q&As

What happens if I press the Stop/Start button while my vehicle is running and not in PARK?

If your vehicle isn’t moving, your vehicle will change to ACCESSORY mode until you shift into PARK. On vehicles equipped with Electronic Precision Shift, the vehicle will automatically shift to PARK and turn off. If your vehicle is moving, it will stay on and your instrument cluster will tell you to press the button again to turn your vehicle off. If you press the button again within five seconds, the vehicle will turn off and change to the ACCESSORY mode.

I left my key fob in the vehicle overnight and now my vehicle won’t start. What's going on?

On some vehicles, key fobs go to sleep if they aren’t moved for a certain period of time. Try moving your fob and starting the vehicle again.
