Low Keyless Remote Signal Strength

Co
ntrols

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 start the engine.

In the following cases, locking/unlocking the doors, opening the trunk, or starting 
the engine 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 or open the trunk 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 door handle wearing gloves, the door 
sensor may be slow to respond or may not respond 
by 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.
