While the ignition key must be inserted into the ignition key cylinder and turned from OFF to the START position in order to start the engine on models without the smart key system, models on which the smart key system is installed start the engine when the push-type engine switch is pressed while the brake pedal is depressed and a key is carried by the driver.
This function has different power source control patterns to suit the state of the brake pedal and shift lever position. For details, see page BE-97.
Along with the adoption of the start function, an engine cranking hold function is used. For details, see page EG-132.
