How to Use the Toyota Smart Key System

Smart new technology is everywhere in today's vehicles, including how you operate the doors, trunks and more. Toyota's Smart Key system significantly improves your daily driving experience through a variety of convenient features that you can use literally at the push of a button. The Smart Key comes with most later model Toyota and will make your life significantly easier. Here's how the Smart Key works.

Locking and Unlocking Your Vehicle

As long as you have the Smart Key fob in your pocket or can unlock your vehicle and even open the trunk. All you need to do is put your hand on the door handle and this smart system will unlock your doors. The system uses an evolving security code that works only with your vehicle to unlock it. When the time comes to lock your vehicle, touch the door handle again and the task is done.

You can operate the liftgate of your trunk in a similar manner. With the fob on your person, locate the button just above the license plate and press it to open the trunk. You may also press the button with the trunk icon on the fob to open the trunk.

Whatever way you choose to open your vehicle, you'll save a lot of time. The Smart Key system is especially helpful when you have lots of cargo or groceries to be loaded or if you have a number of passengers who need to enter your car.

Push Button Start

Another way that the Toyota Smart Key offers you the ultimate in convenience involves starting your vehicle. With the key fob in your pocket or purse, all you need to do is press the engine start/stop button. To do so, your Toyota must be in park and you must depress the brake pedal with your foot. It's that easy. Once you have arrived at your destination, place your vehicle in park once again and press the start/stop button.

Other features are available for you to use without completely starting your vehicle thanks to the Smart Key System. To operate your infotainment system, push the start/stop button once without putting your foot on the brake. Pushing the button twice will give you access to climate control. If you push the button a third time, all of these features will turn off.
