I was just wondering on my '16, how would I key start it? I know older models you just pop the PTS button, but I do not think it works for the newer cars. I would just like to know how in case I am ever in a situation where my fob dies.

There is no way, there's nothing to remove or insert to use the fob as a key, so if it doesn't work then you're boned.

The hidden key in the fob will open your door, but not start the car. I keep a new 2032 3V lithium button battery in the bottom of my console, just in case my fob dies away from home. Some folks change their battery annually, but I'm sure to forget so I just keep a new one in my center console.

Never occurred to me to do that. Thanks guys for this tip. I am always running around in the wide open spaces. Wish they would have kept the option of using the fob as a key.
