Hyundai Tucson: Push Button Start Ignition Switch / Starting the Engine

WARNING

  • Always wear appropriate shoes when operating your vehicle. Unsuitable shoes such as high heels, ski boots, sandals, and flip-flops may interfere with your ability to use the brake, accelerator, and clutch pedals. Do not drive barefoot.
  • Do not start your vehicle with the accelerator pedal depressed. Place your foot firmly on the brake pedal while starting your vehicle.
  • Wait until the engine is at normal idle before shifting gears and releasing the brake. Your vehicle may move suddenly if your vehicle is shifted while the engine RPM is high. It may cause damage to the transmission system.

Information

  • The vehicle starts by pressing the Push Button Start ignition switch, only when the smart key is in the vehicle.
  • The vehicle may not start even if the smart key is in the vehicle but it is not near you (e.g. in the cargo area).
  • When the Push Button Start ignition switch is in the ACC or ON position, if any door is open, the system checks for the smart key. When the smart key is not in the vehicle, the indicator blinks and the warning, "Key not in vehicle" appears. When all doors are closed, the chime also sounds for about 5 seconds.

1. Always carry the smart key with you.

2. Make sure the parking brake is applied.

3. Make sure the shift lever/button is in P(Park).

4. Depress the brake pedal.

5. Press the Push Button Start ignition switch.

Information

  • Do not wait for the engine to warm up or race the engine while the vehicle remains stationary.
  • Start driving at moderate engine speeds. Do not rapidly accelerate and decelerate while driving.

NOTICE

To prevent damage to the vehicle:

  • Do not press the Push Button Start ignition switch for more than 10 seconds except when the stop lamp fuse is blown. When the stop lamp fuse is blown, replace the fuse. If you cannot replace the fuse, start the engine by pressing and holding the Push Button Start ignition switch for 10 seconds with the Push Button Start ignition switch in the ACC position.
  • If the engine stalls while the vehicle is moving, shift to N (Neutral) and use the Push Button Start ignition switch to attempt to restart the engine.
  • Do not push or tow your vehicle to start the engine.

Information

If the smart key battery is weak or the smart key does not work correctly, press the Push Button Start ignition switch with the smart key.
