■When riding in an aircraft When bringing an electronic key onto an aircraft, make sure you do not press any button on the electronic key while inside the aircraft cabin. If you are carrying an electronic key in your bag etc., ensure that the buttons are not likely to be pressed accidentally. Pressing a button may cause the electronic key to emit radio waves that could interfere with the operation of the aircraft.

■Key battery depletion

  • The standard battery life is 1 to 2 years.
  • If the battery becomes low, an alarm will sound in the cabin when the engine stops.
  • As the electronic key always receives radio waves, the battery will become depleted even if the electronic key is not used. The following symptoms indicate that the electronic key battery may be depleted. Replace the battery when necessary.
    • The smart key system or the wireless remote control does not operate.
    • The detection area becomes smaller.
    • The LED indicator on the key surface does not turn on.
  • To reduce key battery depletion when the electronic key is to not be used for long periods of time, set the electronic key to the battery-saving mode.
  • To avoid serious deterioration, do not leave the electronic key within 3 ft. (1 m) of the following electrical appliances that produce a magnetic field:
    • TVs
    • Personal computers
    • Cellular phones, cordless phones and battery chargers
    • Recharging cellular phones or cordless phones
    • Table lamps
    • Induction cookers

■Confirmation of the registered key number The number of keys already registered to the vehicle can be confirmed. Ask your Toyota dealer for details.

■If a wrong key is used The key cylinder rotates freely to isolate inside mechanism.


■To prevent key damage

  • Do not drop the keys, subject them to strong shocks or bend them.
  • Do not expose the keys to high temperatures for long periods of time.
  • Do not get the keys wet or wash them in an ultrasonic washer etc.
  • Do not attach metallic or magnetic materials to the keys or place the keys close to such materials.

Carrying the electronic key on your person Carry the electronic key 3.9 in. (10 cm) or more away from electric appliances that are turned on. Radio waves emitted from electric appliances within 3.9 in. (10 cm) of the electronic key may interfere with the key, causing the key to not function properly.
