ACTIVITY KEY

The activity key is a security wrist strap designed to support situations where the smart key might be obtrusive or difficult to keep secure. The activity key is waterproof to a depth of 30 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.

NOTES

Locking preference settings are retained when locking or unlocking the vehicle using the activity key, e.g., single or multi-point entry. See SINGLE - AND MULTI-POINT ENTRY and GLOBAL OPENING.

Activity key: locking:

The ignition must be switched off. After exiting the vehicle and closing the last open door, the antenna for the activity key activates temporarily. The user has 30 seconds to place the activity key's wrist strap against the antenna which is behind the letter D of the tailgate's Discovery badge. 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 will fold in.

NOTES

If a locking attempt is unsuccessful, an audible alert sounds. Check that all of the doors and the tailgate are closed, and that the ignition is switched off.

NOTES

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.

NOTES

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:

On returning to the vehicle, press the tailgate release button to temporarily activate the antenna. The user has 30 seconds to place the activity key wrist strap against the letter D on the tailgate's Discovery badge. Once the antenna recognises 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.

NOTES

When the vehicle is unlocked with the activity key, any valid smart key inside the vehicle re-enables.

NOTES

Only the activity key initially used to lock the vehicle can re-enable a disabled smart key(s).
