Ignition Switch

While carrying the FAST key, the ignition switch can be turned to start the engine, without the need to insert a traditional key. To prevent vehicle theft, no FAST keys other than those registered in advance can be used to start the engine (Electronic Immobilizer function).

LOCK (PUSH OFF) — The position where the steering wheel is locked.
LOCK (PUSH ON) — When the ID code verification inside the vehicle produces a match, the ignition switch can be turned.
ACC (Accessory) — Allows operation of electrical accessories with the engine off.
ON — The engine runs and all electrical accessories can be used.
START — Engages the starter. Release the ignition switch when the engine starts. The ignition switch returns automatically to the “ON” position.

NOTE: If the ignition switch is not turned to the “LOCK (PUSH OFF)” position when the engine is not running, the ID code cannot be verified and the engine will not start even if the ignition switch is turned to the “START” position. If this happens, fully return the ignition switch to the “LOCK (PUSH OFF)” position, and start the engine again.

TO TURN FROM “LOCK (PUSH OFF)” TO “ACC”

Turn slowly after pressing the ignition switch.

It may be necessary to push the ignition switch again, turn the steering wheel in both directions and then turn the ignition switch. The ignition switch cannot be turned unless the FAST key is inside the vehicle.

Refer to “Operating range for starting the engine” in the vehicle Owner’s Manual.

TO TURN FROM “ACC” TO “LOCK”
Set the selector lever to the “P” (PARK) position, and then slowly turn the ignition switch to the “LOCK” position while pressing it.

Do not leave the ignition switch in the “ON” or “ACC” position for long periods of time when the engine is not running. Doing so may lead to a dead battery.
