Can Key work without a battery?
Can the Key Start the car even if there's no battery in the key?
I've looked at the owner's manual.
From what I understand, its possible to use the mechanical key to open the door, but you cant use it to start the engine, although I've read you can start the engine by "Touching" the Start button with the intelligent key for a few seconds and then pushing the start button (I think) when the Key's battery is "discharged", Im wondering if this functions even if there's no battery?
In other words, can you get a traditional key equivalent (for the second set of keys) by removing the battery (so no remote functions but still able to use the key as a traditional key to get in and start the engine)?
