What should I know about the keys included with my car?
Your car comes with two primary keys, called Integrated Keyhead Transmitters, or IKTs. They combine the functionality of a mechanical key with a remote entry system, providing you with the means to lock or unlock your doors from a distance, or at the lock, as well as arming the alarm and more. Of course, there are several things that you should know about your keys:
Your keys are programmed to work with your car and only your car (that also means that any other key will not work with your ignition).
Your keys came with a special security label that will be needed if you ever have to have new keys cut without an original key.
Your keys can lock and unlock all the doors (both physically and remotely) and they can arm/disarm the security system.
