How to use the Honda Smart Entry System
In today’s automotive world, there are plenty of fun and exciting new technologies that make our day to day lives easier. In fact, there are also some technologies that just make things a bit easier and simpler. That’s why we wanted to show you how to use the Honda Smart Entry System. Just follow these steps!
What is the Honda Smart Entry System?
With the Honda Smart Entry System, drivers are able to unlock, drive and then relock your vehicle without even touching a key. When holding onto your remote key fob and you’re within 32 inches of your car, you will be able to unlock your car door simply by grabbing the inside of the car door handle. If you are wearing gloves, the sensors might not work to unlock the door, or could just have a slower response time to unlock. However, keep in mind that the range of the remote to the vehicle needed to unlock can vary, as radio signals from devices such as smartphones, laptops and tablets can affect the remote’s range.
When exiting the vehicle, drivers can lock their doors back up by touching the black button found on the door handle, or the ridges on top of the handle. If by chance you accidentally leave your remote key fob in the car, the doors won’t lock until it has been removed so you don’t get locked out.
Drivers can also set up the Walk Away Auto Lock feature through the settings option on the infotainment system. When all of the doors are locked and you have the remote with you, your car will beep once you exit the vehicle and beep again and lock the doors once you walk more than 8 feet away. If you hear rapid beeps, that is signaling that the car is not locked, maybe because a door isn’t closed or closed properly.
