What should I know about using my remote?

A: Your remote is attached to the key itself (...

Your remote is attached to the key itself (it’s a single all-inclusive unit, called an Integrated Keyhead Transmitter, or IKT). It lets you do a lot of different things without having to be physically at the vehicle. Here’s what you can do:

  • You can lock or unlock the doors.
  • You can open the power liftgate.
  • You can unlock the liftgate (without opening it.
  • You can turn on the lights (illuminated entry).

Tip

  • You can use the remote outside the car, but you can also use it when it’s in the ignition, with the exception of during the actual cranking process.

  • You can only use the Panic button when the ignition is turned off.
