re: Activity key experiences & instructions
is that where you have to hold it - over the r on the tailgate?
Why not read the manual or watch the video? Did they press the tailgate release button prior to pressing key against R?
The activity key is a security wrist strap devised to support activities, e.g., swimming, when the smart key would be obtrusive or difficult to keep secure. The activity key is waterproof to a depth of 18 m and is shockproof.
While the activity key is worn on the wrist, the smart key can remain inside the vehicle. When the activity key is activated, the vehicle locks, the alarm system arms, and any smart key remaining inside the vehicle is disabled.
Locking preference settings are retained when locking or unlocking the vehicle using the activity key, e.g., single or multi-point entry.
Activity key locking
The ignition must be switched off. After exiting the vehicle and closing the last open door, or the tailgate, the antenna for the activity key activates for 30 seconds. The antenna is located behind the letter R for the Rover of the tailgate's Range Rover badge. The user has this time to place the activity key wrist strap against the letter R. When the security pairing is complete, the vehicle locks and arms the alarm system. The hazard warning lights flash to confirm. If power-fold mirrors are enabled, they fold in.
If a locking attempt is unsuccessful, an audible alert is given. Check that all of the doors and the tailgate are closed, and that the ignition is switched off.
If the tailgate of a locked vehicle is opened using the smart key or the gesture tailgate feature, an audible alert may sound when re-closing the tailgate. Should this occur, fully unlock the vehicle before attempting to close the tailgate.
When the vehicle is locked with the activity key, any valid smart key remaining inside the vehicle is disabled. Any valid smart key outside the vehicle remains enabled.
Activity key unlocking
When returning to the vehicle, press the tailgate release button to reactivate the antenna. The antenna activates for 30 seconds, allowing the user to place the activity key wrist strap against the letter R. When the antenna recognizes the activity key, the vehicle unlocks and disarms the alarm system. The hazard warning lights flash to confirm. If the power-fold mirrors are enabled, they unfold.
When the vehicle is unlocked with the activity key, any valid smart key inside the vehicle re-enables.
Only the activity key initially used to lock the vehicle can re-enable a disabled smart key(s).
