The no key warning will show up in your vehicle information display for a couple of different reasons. These are as follows:

  1. If the Intelligent Key™ is not recognized when you push the start button.
  • This may happen if the key has lost its coding, or if the wrong key is being used.

  • This may occur if the battery for the key is dead (replace the battery).

  • This may also occur if you don’t have the Intelligent Key™ with you.

  1. If the Intelligent Key™ is outside the driver door and the door is closed. You should also hear a chime if this happens.
