Toyota RAV4. Antenna location and effective range


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

The system can be operated when the electronic key is within about 2.3 Ft. (0.7 M) of either of the outside front door handles and back door opener switch.

(Only the doors detecting the key can be operated.) 


The system can be operated when the electronic key is inside the vehicle.

When the door cannot be locked by the lock sensor on the upper part of the door handle

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.


Alarms and warning indicators

A combination of exterior and interior alarms as well as warning lights are used to prevent theft of the vehicle and unforeseeable accidents resulting from erroneous operation. Take appropriate measures for the warning light that comes on.

The following table describes circumstances and correction procedures when only alarms are sounded.

Alarm

Situation

Correction procedure

Exterior alarm sounds once for 5 seconds An attempt was made to lock the doors using the smart key system while the electronic key was still inside the vehicle. Retrieve the electronic key from the vehicle and lock the doors again.

Holding a passengers door handle Unlocks all the doors.
Holding a door handle unlocks all the doors. Exterior: beeps twice interior: pings once

Battery-saving function

The battery-saving function will be activated in order to prevent the electronic key battery and the vehicle battery from being discharged while the vehicle is not in operation for a long time.

In the following situations, the smart key system may take some time to unlock the doors

If the smart key system has not been used for 14 days or longer, the doors cannot be unlocked at any doors except the drivers door. In this case, take hold of the drivers door handle, or use the wireless remote control or the mechanical key, to unlock the doors.

Electronic key battery-saving function

When battery-saving mode is set, battery depletion is minimized by stopping the electronic key from receiving radio waves.

Press twice
while pressing and holding .
Confirm that the electronic key indicator flashes 4 times.

While the battery-saving mode is set, the smart key system cannot be used. To cancel the function, press any of the electronic key buttons.


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, wireless remote control and engine immobilizer system from operating properly.

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:

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. However, only the doors detecting the electronic key can be used to unlock the vehicle.

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 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 entry function. (Use the wireless remote control to unlock the doors.)

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 the 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 function may not operate.)

If the smart key system does not operate properly

Electronic key battery depletion

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:

When the electronic key battery is fully depleted
