Toyota Venza manuals

Toyota Venza: Antenna location and effective range

 - Antenna location


1. Antennas outside cabin 2. Antennas inside cabin 3. Antenna outside luggage compartment

 - Effective range (areas within which the electronic key is detected)


When locking or unlocking the doors The system can be operated when the electronic key is within about 2.3 ft.

(0.7 m) of an outside door handle.

When starting the engine or changing “ENGINE START STOP” switch modes The system can be operated when the electronic key is inside the vehicle.

 - Operation signals

A buzzer sounds and the emergency flashers flash to indicate that the doors have been locked/unlocked. (Locked: Once; Unlocked: Twice)

 - When the door cannot be locked using the topside sensor area


If the door will not lock even when the topside sensor area is touched, try touching both the topside and underside sensor areas at the same time.

 - Conditions affecting operation

The smart key system uses weak radio waves. In the following situations, the communication between the electronic key and the vehicle may be affected, preventing the smart key system and wireless remote control from operating properly. (Way of coping )

• When the electronic key battery is depleted • Near a TV tower, electric power plant, gas station, radio station, large display, airport or other facility that generates strong radio waves or electrical noise • When carrying a portable radio, cellular phone, cordless phone or other wireless communication devices
• When the electronic key has come into contact with, or is covered by a metallic object
• When multiple electronic keys are in the vicinity • When carrying or using the electronic key together with the following devices that emit radio waves

• Another vehicle’s electronic key • A wireless key that emits radio waves • Personal computer

• If window tint with a metallic content or metallic objects are attached to the rear window

 - Switching the door unlock function

It is possible to set which doors the entry function unlocks.

Turn the “ENGINE START STOP” switch
OFF.

When the indicator on the key surface
is turned off, press and hold or
for approximately 5 seconds while pressing
on the key.


The setting changes each time an operation is performed, as shown below.

(When changing the setting continuously, release the buttons, wait for at least 5 seconds, and repeat .)



For vehicles equipped with an alarm:


To prevent unintended triggering of the alarm, unlock the doors using the wireless remote control and open and close a door once after the settings have been changed. (If a door is not opened within 60 second after is pressed, the doors will be locked
again and the alarm will automatically be set.) In case that the alarm is triggered, immediately stop the alarm.

 - Battery-saving function

In the following circumstances, the entry function is disabled in order to prevent the vehicle and electronic key batteries from discharging.

• When the entry function has not been used for 2 weeks or more • When the electronic key has been left within approximately 3 ft. (1 m) of the vehicle for 10 minutes or more

The system will resume operation when...

• The vehicle is locked using the door handle lock switch.

• The vehicle is locked/unlocked using the wireless remote control function or the mechanical key.

 - Electronic key battery depletion

• The standard battery life is 1 to 2 years. (The battery becomes depleted even if the electronic key is not used.) If the smart key system or the wireless remote control function does not operate, or the detection area becomes smaller, the battery may be depleted. Replace the battery when necessary.

• If the battery becomes low, an alarm will sound in the cabin when the engine stops.

• 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
• Recharging cellular phones or cordless phones • Table lamps

 - To operate the system properly

Make sure to carry the electronic key when operating the system. Do not get the electronic key too close to the vehicle when operating the system from outside of the vehicle.

Depending on the position and holding condition of the electronic key, the key may not be detected correctly and the system may not operate properly.

(The alarm may go off accidentally, or the door lock prevention may not function.)

 - Note for the entry function

• Even when the electronic key is within the effective range (detection areas), the system may not operate properly in the following cases.

• The electronic key is too close to the window or outside door handle, near the ground, or in a high place when the doors are locked or unlocked.

• The electronic key is near the ground or in a high place, or too close to the rear bumper center when the back door is locked or unlocked.

• The electronic key is on the instrument panel, floor or in the glove box when the engine is started or “ENGINE START STOP” switch modes are changed.

• Do not leave the electronic key on top of the instrument panel or near the door pockets when exiting the vehicle. Depending on the radio wave reception conditions, it may be detected by the antenna outside the cabin and the door will become lockable from the outside, possibly trapping the electronic key inside the vehicle.

• As long as the electronic key is within the effective range, the doors may be locked or unlocked by anyone.

• Even if the electronic key is not inside the vehicle, it may be possible to start the engine if the electronic key is near the window.

• The doors may unlock or lock if a large amount of water splashes on the door handle, such as in the rain or in a car wash when the electronic key is within the effective range. (The doors will automatically be locked after approximately 60 seconds if the doors are not opened and closed.)

• If the key is kept near the vehicle while it is being washed, water applied to a door handle may cause the door to lock and unlock repeatedly. In this event, place the key in a location 6 ft. (2 m) or more from the vehicle, taking care not to lose the key.

• If the key is inside the vehicle while it is being washed, water applied to a door handle may cause a buzzer to sound. In this event, locking all doors will cause the buzzer to stop sounding.

• It may not be possible to lock the doors if the sensor area is covered by mud, ice, snow etc. In this event, try locking again after cleaning the area, or lock by touching the sensor area on the underside of the door handle.

• Gripping the door handle when wearing a glove may not unlock or lock the door.

• If the wireless remote control is used to lock the doors when the electronic key is near the vehicle, there is a possibility that the door may not be unlocked by the smart key system. (Use the wireless remote control to unlock the doors.)

• A sudden approach to the effective range or door handle operation may prevent the doors from being unlocked. In this case, return the door handle to the original position and check that the doors unlock before pulling the door handle.

 - When the vehicle is not driven for extended periods

To prevent theft of the vehicle, do not leave the electronic key within 6 ft. (2 m) of the vehicle.

 - Security feature

If a door is not opened within approximately 60 seconds after the vehicle is unlocked, the security feature automatically locks the vehicle again.

 - Alarms and warning indicators

A combination of exterior and interior alarms as well as warnings displayed on the multi-information display are used to prevent theft of the vehicle and unforeseeable accidents resulting from erroneous operation. Perform the appropriate correction procedure described in the following table.
