  • Preventing Inadvertent Lockingof the Key fob RKE Transmitterinside the VehicleTo minimize the possibility ofunintentionally locking a key fob RKEtransmitter inside your vehicle, thePassive Entry system is equippedwith an automatic door unlock featurewhich will function if the ignitionswitch is in the OFF position.If one of the vehicle doors is open andthe door panel switch is used to lockthe vehicle, once all open doors havebeen closed, the system checks theinside and outside of the vehicle forany valid key fobs RKE transmitter.If one of the vehicle's key fobs RKEtransmitters is detected inside thevehicle, and no other valid key fobsRKE transmitters are detected outsidethe vehicle, the Passive Entry systemautomatically unlocks all vehicle doorsand chirps the horn fourteen times (onthe fifteenth attempt ALL doors willlock and the key fob RKE transmitterwill be locked in the vehicle). This willhappen even on vehicles equippedwith Power Trunk Lid/Hand Freepressing RH button on its right lowerpart to close and lock the trunk lid.

    NOTE:

    The vehicle unlocks the doors underany of the following conditions:

    the doors are manually locked usingthe door lock knob positioned on thedoor panel;

    there is a valid key fob RKEtransmitter inside the vehicle;

    there is not a valid key fob RKEtransmitter outside the vehicle.

    NOTE:

    The vehicle will not unlock the doorsunder any of the following conditions:

    the doors are locked using the keyfob RKE transmitter;

    the doors are locked using thebutton on the Passive Entry doorhandles;

    there is a valid key fob RKEtransmitter outside the vehicle andwithin 3.3 ft (1 m) of either PassiveEntry door handle;

    fifteen attempts are made to lockthe doors using the door panelswitch and/or the RH button (onthe vehicles equipped with PowerTrunk Lid/Hands Free) and then closethe doors.

    If the key fob RKE transmitter is insidethe passenger compartment and oneof the doors locked only to the firstdetent of lock pawl (hence it is notfully closed), when the vehicle lockfunction with alarm system for trunklid and doors is being activated bymeans of RH button at the bottomof the trunk lid, said function will beactivated all the same.In this condition, any attempt to dulyclose the door that is partially open

  • will cancel vehicle lock and alarmsystem arming thus leaving vehicleunlocked.Since when the doors are locked, the"Passive Entry" system waits for about16 seconds before verifying if a keyfob RKE transmitter is present insidethe vehicle.

    Release the Lid and Enter theTrunkFor vehicles equipped with manualtrunk lid, with the key fob within 3.3ft (1 m) of the lid, press the buttonlocated between the licence platelights and lift it manually.For vehicles equipped with PowerTrunk Lid/Hands Free, with the key fobwithin 3.3 ft (1 m) of the lid, press thebutton located between the licenseplate lights, the power trunk lid willautomatically open until it hasreached its maximum height; if thesame button is not pressed again tostop it (for more information, seechapter Trunk Lid Operation in thissection).If the vehicle had already beenunlocked through key fob or PassiveEntry, the presence of the key fob isnot required; simply use the buttonlocated between the license plate

    lights to open the trunk lid manuallyor automatically.

    Manual Door Lock fromOutsideWith one of the vehicles key fobs RKEtransmitters within 3.3 ft (1 m) of thedriver or passenger front doorhandles, press the external doorhandle button to lock all four doors.

    NOTE:

    After pressing the outside doorhandle button, you must wait twoseconds before you can lock orunlock the doors using this doorhandle. By pulling the external doorhandle, you can check if the carremains locked, without PassiveEntry system reacting andunlocking the doors.

    The Passive Entry system will notoperate if the key fob RKEtransmitter battery is dead.

    If Power Trunk Lid/Hands Free (ifequipped) has been left open, it willstay open when you press the buttonon door external handle, and thelocking feature will only occur afterthe closing of the power trunk lid.

    The vehicle doors can also be lockedby using the key fob RKE transmitterlock button or the lock button

    located on the vehicles inner doorpanel.

  • The system will only operate if thesystem acknowledges the presence ofthe key fob RKE transmitter within 3.3ft (1 m) of the Power Trunk Lid/HandsFree.The range of the sensors that detectyour foot movement extends alongand underneath the central portion ofthe rear bumper.To activate the Power Trunk Lid/HandsFree, stand behind the vehicle, nearthe trunk lid, and move your footunder the bumper as if to kicksomething. Do not place your foot tooclose to the bumper or touch theunderbody.

    WARNING! Pay careful attention to the exhausttailpipes as they can reach hightemperatures and, in case of contact,they can cause severe burns.

    When it is not necessary to open thePower Trunk Lid/Hand Free with theHands Free mode, make sure the keyfob results outside the range of use(3.3 ft/1 m). Otherwise, the PowerTrunk Lid/Hand Free can be openedaccidentally by an unintentionalmovement of the foot.

    In order for the sensors to detect yourfoot movement, move your foottowards the vehicle rather thansideways and immediately pull it back:from this moment, the Power TrunkLid/Hands Free will activate within twoseconds.If closed, with the foot movement thePower Trunk Lid/Hands Free will:

    unlock and completely open; after another kick, will stop; after another kick, will reverse itsmovement and completely closeunless stopped again.

    If open, with the foot movement thePower Trunk Lid/Hands Free will:

    completely close but not lock; another kick before the completedclosing can stop the movement;

    if the movement was stoppedanother kick operation will invert acomplete opening.

    NOTE:

    If your foot movement fails toactivate the Power Trunk Lid/HandsFree movement, wiggling your footunder the bumper will not help.Repeat the whole kick movement.

    In particular situations, externalfactors affecting the sensor area maytrigger the Hands free power trunklid release feature. For example,when washing the vehicle, a waterjet aimed at the sensor area maytrigger the Hands free powertrunk release feature. Keep the keyfob RKE transmitter away from thesensing range of the sensors (10 ft/3m) or disable the Hands free featurefrom the MTC+ menu (see MTC+Settings in section DashboardInstruments and Controls). A keyfob RKE transmitter located in thefront seat passenger area isconsidered out of range of theHand free trunk release sensor.
