Principles of operation

MyKey® allows you to program keys with restricted driving modes to promote good driving habits. All but one of the keys programmed to the vehicle can be activated with these restricted modes. Any keys that have not been programmed are referred to as an administrator key or admin key which can be used to:

• create a restricted key
• program optional MyKey settings
• clear all MyKey features altogether.

Once a key has been programmed, you can access the following information using the information display control:

• How many admin keys and MyKeys are programmed to the vehicle.
• The total distance the vehicle has been driven with a MyKey.

For vehicles equipped with intelligent access (push button start), when both a MyKey and an admin intelligent access key (fob) are present, the admin fob will be recognized by the vehicle to start the engine.

Standard Settings

These settings cannot be changed.

• Belt-Minder. This cannot be disabled and the five-minute timer does not expire. The audio system is muted when MyKey Belt-Minder is activated.
• Early low fuel. Warnings are displayed in the information display control followed by an audible tone when the fuel tank is at 1/8 tank or less.
• Driver assist features, if equipped on your vehicle, are forced on: rear parking aid, BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, forward collision warning system and satellite radio adult content restriction.

Optional Settings

These settings can be configured right after a MyKey is first created or changed afterward with an admin key.

• Vehicle speed limit of 65, 70, 75 and 80 mph (105, 113, 121 and 130 km/h). Visual warnings are displayed followed by an audible tone when vehicle speed has reached the selected top speed.
• Vehicle speed minder of 45, 55 or 65 mph (75, 90, or 105 km/h).

Visual warnings are displayed followed by an audible tone when the preselected vehicle speed is exceeded.
• Audio system maximum volume of 45%. A message in the audio system is displayed when attempting to exceed the limited volume.

Also, the speed sensitive compensated volume feature will be disabled.
• Always on setting. When this is selected, you will not be able to disable AdvanceTrac, 911 Assist or Do not disturb feature (if your vehicle is equipped with these features).
