Here’s how to use Keyless Start (if equipped) to start and shut down the vehicle.
To Start the Vehicle:
With the key fob inside the vehicle and the vehicle in PARK:
- Press the brake pedal (and the clutch if a manual transmission).
- Press the Engine Stop/Start button. The green indicator on the button will illuminate and the engine will start.
Note: Pressing the Engine Stop/Start button without pressing the brake pedal will put the vehicle in ACCESSORY mode.
To Shut Down the Vehicle:
- Shift into PARK.
- Press the Engine Stop/Start button.

If your vehicle isn’t moving, your vehicle will change to ACCESSORY mode until you shift into PARK. On vehicles equipped with Electronic Precision Shift, the vehicle will automatically shift to PARK and turn off. If your vehicle is moving, it will stay on and your instrument cluster will tell you to press the button again to turn your vehicle off. If you press the button again within five seconds, the vehicle will turn off and change to the ACCESSORY mode.
On some vehicles, key fobs go to sleep if they aren’t moved for a certain period of time. Try moving your fob and starting the vehicle again.
