Intelligent access

Intelligent access  - Remote entry system - Locks and Security - Lincoln MKS Owners Manual - Lincoln MKS

Your vehicle will allow you to unlock and enter your vehicle without actively using a key or transmitter. You can use the intelligent access feature at the driver door or at the trunk. You can activate the intelligent access feature as long as you have one of your intelligent access keys within range of the driver door or the trunk.

Activating intelligent access at the drivers door: If your IA key is within 3 feet (1 meter) of the drivers door, you can activate your intelligent access system by pressing any button on the keyless entry keypad. The drivers door will automatically unlock and the door can be opened.

Note: If two stage unlocking is disabled, all doors will unlock when you press any button on the keyless entry keypad.

Activating intelligent access at the trunk: If your IA key is within 3 feet (1 meter) of the trunk, you can activate your intelligent access system by pressing the exterior trunk release button, hidden under the trim above the license plate. The trunk will release and open.

Refer to the Remote entry system in this section for more details on how to use the lock, unlock, panic, or trunk buttons on the transmitter.

Your intelligent access system uses a radio frequency (RF) signal to communicate with your vehicle and authorize your vehicle to unlock when commanded (either by pressing any keyless entry keypad button, the trunk button, or a button on the transmitter itself). If excessive RF interference is present in the area, or if your vehicle battery is low, it may be necessary to mechanically unlock your door. The mechanical key blade in your IA key can be used to open the drivers door in this situation (refer to Keys in this chapter for more information on the location and use of the mechanical key blade).

A mechanical key is needed for access if the IA key battery or vehicle battery is low.

Push button start: Your vehicle is equipped with a push button start system, which allows you to start your vehicle without using a key. To operate the push button start system and start your vehicle, your IA key must be present inside the vehicle, either in the passenger compartment or in the trunk. Refer to Push button start system in the Driving chapter.
