PUSH-BUTTON START SYSTEM OPERATION CHECK


  1. OPERATION DESCRIPTION


    1. Push-button start function:


      1. When the key is in the detection area inside the vehicle and the brake pedal is depressed, the hybrid control system is started by pressing the power switch.

      2. When the key is in the detection area inside the vehicle and the brake pedal is not depressed, the power source mode is changed by pressing the power switch. The power source mode changes in the following order every time the power switch is pressed: off → on (ACC) → on (IG) → off.

      3. After getting into the vehicle while carrying the key when the power switch is off, if the power switch is pressed while not depressing the brake pedal, the power source mode changes to on (ACC) and the power switch indicator illuminates in amber.

      4. After getting into the vehicle while carrying the key when the power switch is off, if the brake pedal is depressed while park (P) is selected, the power switch indicator illuminates in green.

      5. The hybrid control system starts if the power switch is pressed when the power switch indicator is illuminated in green.

    2. Changing the power source mode when the key does not operate correctly due to wave interference or key battery depletion:


      1. Unlock the door using the built-in mechanical key and get into the vehicle while carrying the key.

      2. While depressing the brake pedal, hold the ornament side of the key against the power switch.

      3. When a buzzer sound is heard from the buzzer in the combination meter, release the brake pedal within 10 seconds. By pressing the power switch while not depressing the brake pedal, the power source mode changes in the following order every time the power switch is pressed: off → on (ACC) → on (IG) → off.

    3. Starting the hybrid control system when the key does not operate correctly due to wave interference or key battery depletion:


      1. Unlock the door using the built-in mechanical key and get into the vehicle while carrying the key.

      2. While depressing the brake pedal with park (P) selected, hold the ornament side of the key against the power switch.

      3. When a buzzer sound is heard from the buzzer in the combination meter and the power switch indicator illuminates in green, press the power switch within 10 seconds while keeping the brake pedal depressed to start the hybrid control system.

  2. CHECK PUSH-BUTTON START FUNCTION


    1. Check the push-button start function:


      1. Get into the vehicle while carrying the key with the power switch off. With park (P) selected, check that the power switch indicator illuminates in green when the brake pedal is depressed. Then check that the hybrid control system starts when the power switch is pressed after the power switch indicator illuminates in green.

      2. While the brake pedal is released and the key is being carried, check that the power source mode changes in the following order when the power switch is pressed: off → on (ACC) → on (IG) → off.

        Tech Tips

        When the power switch is pressed with the power switch on (IG) and park (P) selected, the power source mode changes to off.

        Tech Tips


        • Refer to the following procedures to cancel the push-button start system Click here.

        • While the push-button start system is canceled, the push-button start system can be operated by holding the key against the power switch.

      2. While the push-button start cancel function is on, check that all functions of the push-button start system cannot be operated.

  3. CHECK POWER SOURCE MODE CHANGING FUNCTION


    1. Check the power switch.


      1. Check that the power source mode changes according to the chart below.

        Shift Position Brake Pedal Power Source Mode when Power Switch Pressed
        Park (P) selected Released Off → on (ACC) → on (IG) → off
