  7. Press the push button start after both the KEY indicator light (green) in the combination meter and the push button start indicator light (green) illuminate.

    After starting the engine, the push button start indicator light (amber) turns off and the ignition switches to the ON position.

  • The key must be carried because the key carries an immobilizer chip that must communicate with the engine controls at short range.
  • The engine can be started when the push button start is pressed from off, ACC, or ON.
  • The push button start system functions (function which can start the engine by only carrying the key) can be deactivated to prevent any possible adverse effect on a user wearing a pacemaker or other medical device. If the system is deactivated, you will be unable to start the engine by carrying the key. Consult your Toyota dealer for details. If the push button start system functions have been deactivated, you can start the engine by following the procedure indicated when the key battery goes dead. Refer to Engine Start Function When Key Battery is Dead.
  • After starting a cold engine, the engine speed increases and a whining sound from the engine compartment can be heard.

    This is for improved exhaust gas purification and does not indicate defect of the parts.

  • Engine-starting is controlled by the spark ignition system.

    This system meets all Canadian Interference-Causing Equipment Standard requirements regulating the impulse electrical field strength of radio noise.

  • Under the following conditions, the KEY warning light (red) flashes after the push button start is pressed to inform the driver that the push button start will not switch to ACC even if it is pressed from off.
    • The key battery is dead.
    • The key is out of operational range.
    • The key is placed in areas where it is difficult for the system to detect the signal.
    • A key from another manufacturer similar to the key is in the operational range.
  • Forced engine starting method: If the KEY warning light (red) illuminates, or the push button start indicator light (amber) flashes, this could indicate that the engine may not start using the usual starting method. Have your vehicle inspected at your Toyota dealer as soon as possible. If this occurs, the engine can be force-started. Press and hold the push button start until the engine starts. Other procedures necessary for starting the engine such as having the key in the cabin, and depressing the clutch pedal (manual transaxle) or the brake pedal (automatic transaxle) are required.
  • When the engine is force-started, the KEY warning light (red) remains illuminated and the push button start indicator light (amber) remains flashing.
  • Automatic transaxle: When the selector lever is in the neutral (N) position, the KEY indicator light (green) and the push button start indicator light (green) do not illuminate.
  • After pressing the push button start and before the engine starts, the operation sound of the fuel pump motor from near the fuel tank can be heard, however, this does not indicate a malfunction.
  • Whether the engine is cold or warm, it should be started without the use of the accelerator.
  • If the engine does not start the first time, refer to Starting a Flooded Engine under Emergency Starting. If the engine still does not start, have your vehicle inspected by your Toyota dealer.

NOTICE
