Toyota Venza: System Description

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

CAUTION:

If using a pacemaker, be sure to read the manual of the pacemaker before using the key, as the radio waves of the key may affect the pacemaker.

1. SMART KEY SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

(a) In addition to conventional mechanical key and wireless door lock control functions, the smart key system enables door locking/unlocking, steering lock releasing and engine starting without operating the key. The only requirement is that the key is in the user's possession.

  • This system is controlled by the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly). When the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) detects the presence of the smart key system in one of the detection areas, it identifies and checks the ID code, and outputs operation signals to the related ECU in accordance with their functions.
  • The detection areas are formed by 6 oscillators (2 door oscillators, 1 outside oscillator and 3 indoor oscillators).

2. DETECTION AREA


Actuation Area

Detail

Interior

The interior detection area of the indoor electrical key oscillators (for front, center and rear floor) is formed when the driver door is opened or closed, when the engine switch is pushed, when a warning is activated, or when the lock sensor on the door outside handle assembly or lock switch on the back door opener switch assembly is on.

Exterior

The exterior detection area formed by the door electrical key oscillators (for driver and front passenger side) and outside electrical key oscillator (for rear side) is approximately 0.7 to 1.0 m (2.30 to 3.28 ft.) from the door outside handle assembly of the front doors, or the center of the rear bumper.

Around Front Door

The exterior detection area of the door electrical key oscillator (for driver or front passenger side) is formed by transmitting a request signal every 0.25 seconds while the engine switch is off and each door is locked. In this way it detects the proximity of a key. When locking the door using the lock sensor on the door outside handle assembly, the detection area is formed when the lock sensor is touched.

Around Back Door

The exterior detection area of the outside electrical key oscillator (for rear side) is formed by when the back door opener switch assembly (opener or lock switch) is on.

4. CONSTRUCTION AND OPERATION

(a) Key

The key consists of a mechanical key, transmitter for wireless door lock control and transceiver for the smart key system.

  • The transceiver function for the smart key system receives the signals from the oscillators and sends the ID code to the tuner.
  • The transmitter function for the wireless door lock control has a lock switch, unlock switch or panic switch.
  • This mechanical key works for the driver door and glove box, but cannot start the engine.

A total of 7 keys can be registered.


(b) Oscillator (each door electrical key oscillator, indoor electrical key oscillator (for front, center and rear floor) and outside electrical key oscillator (for rear side))

Each oscillator transmits the request signal received from the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly), and forms a key detection area to detect the presence of a key. The detection area formed by each door electrical key oscillator and outside electrical key oscillator (for rear side) is approximately 0.7 to 1.0 m (2.30 to 3.28 ft.) from the door outside handle assembly of each door or the center of the rear bumper.

  • The detection area of each door electrical key oscillator is formed by transmitting a request signal every 0.25 seconds while the engine switch is off and each door is locked. In this way, the oscillator detects the proximity of a key. During entry lock, the detection area is formed with the lock sensor on.
  • The detection area of the outside electrical key oscillator (for rear side) is formed when the back door opener switch assembly (opener or lock switch) is on.
  • The detection area of the indoor electrical key oscillators (for front, center and rear floor) is formed when any door is opened or closed, during engine start, when a warning is activated, or when the lock sensor on the door outside handle assembly or lock switch on the back door opener switch assembly is on.

5. ENTRY FUNCTION OPERATION

Condition

Control

Both conditions below are met for 5 days:

  • Key is not in detection area
  • Touch sensor or lock switch operation is not performed

Signal transmission interval is extended from 0.25 to 0.75 seconds

Both conditions below are met for 14 days:

  • Key is not in detection area
  • Touch sensor or lock switch operation is not performed

The smart key system is automatically deactivates

Reinstatement Conditions

  • A wireless door lock control signal (lock, unlock) is input and the ID code matches.
  • A user carries the key and touches a lock sensor on a door outside handle assembly.
  • The driver door is locked or unlocked by the mechanical key.

(b) Key Battery and Vehicle Battery Saving Function

In the smart key system, if the key is constantly in the exterior detection area of the doors, the system maintains periodic communication with the key. Therefore, if the vehicle remains parked in that state for a long time, the key battery and vehicle battery could be drained. For this reason, if this state continues longer than 10 minutes, the smart key system automatically becomes deactivated.

Reinstatement Conditions

  • A wireless door lock control signal (lock, unlock) is input and the ID code matches.
  • A user carries the key and touches a lock sensor on a door outside handle assembly.
  • A door is locked or unlocked by the mechanical key.
