Emergency key

Recommended Posts

Hi all , have a new 2017 ecosport Titanium Automatic 1.5 with keyless entry,start.

If ever the fob battery dies  ,  i realise there is a door key inside the fob ,once the doors are opened with it would the car still start ok even with a dead battery in the fob ?... i know i could give it a go now, but not sure if it would cause any problems with the fobs memory,etc.

There will be a marked location (in my car it's under the armrest).
The key just gets placed on to the marked area and it works just like the PATS ring used to on key ignitions.

  • The passive key frequencies are jammed.
  • The passive key battery has no charge.
If you are unable to start your vehicle, do the following.
