If you try to remove the Key Fob before you place the
shift lever in PARK, it may become trapped tempo-
rarily in the ignition switch. If this occurs, rotate the
key to the right slightly, then remove the Key Fob as
described. If a malfunction occurs, the system will trap
the key in the ignition switch to warn you that this
safety feature is inoperable. The engine can be started
and stopped, but the Key Fob cannot be removed until
you obtain service.
For vehicles equipped with the Electronic Vehicle
Information Center (EVIC), the power window
switches, radio, power sunroof (if equipped), and
power outlets will remain active for up to 10 minutes
after the ignition switch is turned to the LOCK posi-
tion. Opening either front door will cancel this feature.
The time for this feature is programmable. Refer to
“Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) — If
Equipped/Personal Settings (Customer-
Programmable Features)” in “Understanding Your In-
strument Panel” for further information.
Never leave children alone in a vehicle. Leaving
unattended children in a vehicle is dangerous for a
number of reasons. A child or others could be seri-
ously or fatally injured. Do not leave the Key Fob in
the ignition. A child could operate power windows,
other controls, or move the vehicle.
An unlocked car is an invitation to thieves. Always
remove Key Fob from the ignition and lock all doors
when leaving the vehicle unattended.
