Starting the Vehicle with a Low Transmitter Battery

Replace the battery if the REPLACE BATTERY IN REMOTE KEY message displays in the DIC.

See “Replace Battery In Remote Key” under Key and Lock Messages for additional information.

If the transmitter battery is weak, the DIC may display ELECTRONIC KEY NOT DETECTED when you try to start the vehicle. To start the vehicle, place the transmitter in the center console storage area transmitter pocket with the buttons facing to the front of the vehicle.

Then, with the vehicle in P (Park) or N (Neutral), press the brake pedal and the ignition control knob. See Starting the Engine, for additional information about the vehicle's electronic keyless ignition.

Replace the transmitter battery as soon as possible.
