Proximity key entry and pushbutton start are becoming a common tech feature throughout the Honda lineup. The key-fob is the linchpin of the proximity key entry and pushbutton start technologies. By simply having the key-fob 32 inches away from your Honda, you can unlock the doors and start the engine without a traditional key. But how do these features work? Let’s find out!

Unlocking the Door:

When the key is 32 inches away from the vehicle, touch the door handle for it to automatically unlock. To unlock all doors, touch the front passenger door handle.

Locking the Door:

With the engine off, shut the door, and press the lock button on the handle.

Starting the Engine:

While the vehicle is in Park, press and hold the brake pedal. Then, press the “Engine Start/Stop” button to start the engine.

Turning the Engine Off:

While the vehicle is in Park, press the “Engine Start/Stop” button to turn the engine off.
