Talking

IF this has been covered in another thread, I apologize in advance. Can anyone explain what the Smart Key Port inside the center console is for? Hopefully not to arm the Nuclear Self Destruct System. Really, Anyone care to elaborate?

Thanks Y'all...

I was told that if the battery was dead in the smart key or wasn't working, you would open the door with the removable key then stick the smart key in the port and then you can start the car.

+1 if your car doesn't open if you push your unlock key then the battery is low. Then you would charge it in your center console. Also from what I read is that your car will tell you as well.

Charge it? How is that possible since there are no physical positive or negative contacts on the Smart Key's exterior? Not to mention, a CR2032 battery isn't rechargable that I know of. If this is true, that would be great but I rather doubt it. Please elaborate Skeezy.

Thanks.....

If you look on your sides of the smart keyfob, there are two holes. When you stick your keyfob in the center console, the charging ports will lock into those holes and charge your smartkey. As far as the charging battery, that I dont know. All I know is that the system charges your smart key which is a cool feature. I didnt believe him as well until he showed my on a dead remote. He plugged in in for about 5-7 minutes ( we were talking during that time) took it out and push the unlock button...POW...it worked

that's interesting. I wonder for how long a non-rechargable battery can hold a charge. 8hrs+/- would be great.

Good info - I did not know this. Took me a minute or two to find the port.

No Kidding...I didn't know this either. This is why we all should follow procedure RTFM LOL. ( READ THE F&**# MANUAL). Usually I'd go thru the owners manual but I've been so busy with work and my new born son...)

Gotta check out the console now..

Like all manuals, it is all but unreadable. Half of it is annoying legal disclaimers.
