If your car has an integrated mechanical key and remote, you’ll need to know how to use that key to crank the engine. It’s not all that complicated, but here’s the rundown of what you need to do:

  2. Make sure the transmission is in park

  3. Put your foot on the brake

  4. Insert the key into the ignition

  7. Put the car in drive
