How do I use the push start system?

The push start system allows you to turn on your vehicle without the key. When the Intelligent Access (IA) key is on your person, you can turn on your vehicle just by pressing the Start/Stop button. To turn on the car, depress the brake pedal, and press the Start/Stop button. Press the button again to turn off the car. You can also turn the car to Accessory by pressing the button once while not pressing the brakes, or you can turn the car to On by pressing the button twice while not deploying the brakes.
