What can I do with the electronic key?

Your electronic key functions as both a way to crank your car, as well as to open the doors and the rear hatch. You don’t even have to push a button to get it to do most of these things. Here’s what you can accomplish just by carrying the key with you in your pocket:

  1. Unlock the doors

  2. Lock the doors

  3. Unlock the rear hatch

  4. Activate the ignition (push button start system)

Tip

You need to have the electronic key on you, and you need to be in close proximity to use these features.
