(4) Press the engine switch with the brake pedal depressed to start the engine.

2. CHECK PUSH-BUTTON START FUNCTION

(a) Check the push-button start function:

(1) Get into the vehicle while carrying the electrical key transmitter sub-assembly with the engine switch off. With the shift lever in P, check that the entry warning light is displayed when the brake pedal is depressed. Check that the engine starts when the engine switch is pressed after the entry warning light is displayed on the multi-information display.

(2) While the brake pedal is released and the electrical key transmitter sub-assembly is being carried, check that the power source mode changes in the following order when the engine switch is pressed: off → on (ACC) → on (IG) → off.

HINT:

When the engine switch is pressed with the engine switch on (IG) and the shift lever not in P, the power source mode does not change to off, but changes to on (ACC).

(3) With the shift lever in P, check that the steering lock operates when a door is opened.

HINT:

When the engine switch is pressed after the vehicle is stopped, the engine stops and all the power turns off. However, if the shift lever is not in P when the engine switch is pressed with the vehicle stopped, the power source mode does not change to off, but changes to on (ACC).

(4) Check the push-button start function operation range for the front side. Place the electrical key transmitter sub-assembly at either inspection point so that it is facing the direction shown in the illustration, and then check that the engine can be started.

Inspection Point

NOTICE:

  • Even if the electrical key transmitter subassembly is in a vehicle interior key detection area, the electrical key transmitter subassembly may not be properly detected if the electrical key transmitter sub-assembly is on the instrument panel, in the glove box or on the floor.

HINT:

  • Communication may not be possible if the electrical key transmitter subassembly is within 0.2 m (0.656 ft.) of the center of the rear seat.
  • Perform this inspection for both inspection points.

(5) Check the push-button start function operation range for the rear side. Place the electrical key transmitter sub-assembly at either inspection point so that it is facing the direction shown in the illustration, and then check that the engine can be started.

3. CHECK TRANSMITTER BATTERY SAVING FUNCTION

(a) Check the transmitter battery saving function:

(1) Press the unlock switch of the electrical key transmitter sub-assembly twice while pressing the lock switch and check that the electrical key transmitter sub-assembly LED blinks 4 times and enters transmitter battery saving mode.

(2) Check that the smart key system does not operate while in transmitter battery saving mode.

HINT:

To cancel transmitter battery saving mode, press a switch of the electrical key transmitter subassembly.

    • Key verification is OK*2 or immobiliser is unset (engine switch is on (ACC) or on (IG)).
    • The shift lever is in N and the steering is unlocked.
    • The stop light switch is on.
  • Condition 2

    All of the following conditions are met:

    • The power source mode was not turned from on (IG) to on (ACC).

*2: When the electrical key transmitter sub-assembly is in the cabin, the ID code sent as a result of communication between the electrical key transmitter sub-assembly and certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) and the ID code calculated by the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) are compared. If the ID codes match each other, the vehicle recognizes that the electrical key transmitter sub-assembly is in the cabin.
