Smart Unlocks for Integrated Keyhead Transmitter

This feature helps to prevent you from locking yourself out of your vehicle if your key is still in the ignition.

When you open one of the front doors and lock your vehicle with the power door lock control, all the doors will lock then unlock if your key is still in the ignition.

You can still lock your vehicle with the key in the ignition using the keyless entry keypad with the driver door closed, or by pressing the lock button on the transmitter even if the doors are not closed.

If both front doors are closed, you can lock your vehicle by any method, regardless of whether the key is in the ignition or not.

Smart Unlocks for Intelligent Access Keys (If Equipped)

This feature helps to prevent you from unintentionally locking your intelligent access key inside your vehicle’s passenger compartment or rear cargo area.

When you lock your vehicle using the driver or passenger power door lock control (with the door open, transmission in P and ignition off), after you close the door your vehicle will search for an intelligent access key in the passenger compartment. All the doors will immediately unlock and the horn will sound if the vehicle detects an intelligent access key inside.

In order to override the smart unlock feature and intentionally lock the intelligent access key inside your vehicle, do one of the following:

• Lock your vehicle with the keyless entry keypad after all doors are closed.
• Press the lock button on another intelligent access key.
• Touch the locking area on the handle with another intelligent access key in your hand.

When you open one of the front doors and lock your vehicle using the power door lock control, all doors will lock then unlock if:

• the ignition is on, or
• the ignition is off and the transmission is not in P.

• all the doors are closed,
• the ignition is on,
• you shift into any gear putting your vehicle in motion, and
• your vehicle reaches a speed greater than 12 mph (20 km/h).

The autolock feature repeats when:

• you open then close any door while the ignition is on and the vehicle speed is 9 mph (15 km/h) or lower, and
• your vehicle then reaches a speed greater than 12 mph (20 km/h).

Autounlock Feature (If Enabled)

The autounlock feature will unlock all the doors when:

• the ignition is on, all the doors are closed, and your vehicle has been in motion at a speed greater than 12 mph (20 km/h);
• your vehicle has then come to a stop and the ignition is switched off or to accessory; and
• the driver door is opened within 10 minutes of the ignition being switched off or to accessory.

Note: The doors will not autounlock if you electronically lock the vehicle after you switch the ignition off and before you open the driver door.

Deactivating or Activating

Note: You can activate or deactivate the autolock and autounlock features independently of each other.

You can activate or deactivate these features:

• through an authorized dealer
• using the information display (if equipped with this feature).

Illuminated Entry

The interior lamps, parking lamps and puddle lamps illuminate when you use the integrated keyhead transmitter, intelligent access key or the keyless entry keypad to unlock the vehicle.

The system will turn off the lights if:

• you switch the ignition on
• you press the lock button on the remote control
• you lock your vehicle using the keyless entry keypad
• after 25 seconds of illumination.

The lights will not turn off if:

• you turn them on with the dimmer control

Illuminated Exit

The interior lamps and select exterior lamps illuminate when all doors are closed, the ignition is turned off and the key is removed from the ignition (integrated keyhead transmitter only).

The lamps turn off if all the doors remain closed and:

• 25 seconds elapse
• you insert the key in the ignition (integrated keyhead transmitter only)
• you press the START/STOP button (intelligent access key only).
