Smart Key

Most late-model Toyota vehicles are available with the Smart Key system, a specialized key fob that provides features like keyless entry and ignition, push-button start, and hands-free liftgate operation. If you're shopping for a recent Toyota vehicle, here's what you need to know about using this convenient, innovative system.

  • To unlock your vehicle with the Smart Key system, press the icon of an open lock once to unlock the driver's door only and twice to unlock all the vehicle's doors. If the doors are not open after being unlocked, they will automatically relock after 60 seconds.
  • To lock the vehicle, simply press the key fob button with the lock icon.
  • To operate the panic button, press and hold the alarm button on the key fob.
  • To start your vehicle, make sure you have the Smart Key fob in your possession. Then, press the engine stop-start button, which has a green indicator light and is located on the right side of your car's steering wheel. For this function to work, you must have the vehicle in park and press the brake pedal. Press once to start the accessories, twice to start the ignition, and three times to start the vehicle's engine. Press once to turn the car's engine off.
