2017 Range Rover Evoque



Any person fitted with an implanted medical device should make sure that the device is kept at a distance of at least 8.7 in (22 cm) away from any transmitter mounted in the vehicle. This is to avoid any possibility of interference between the system and the device.

Interference may cause the implanted medical device to malfunction, potentially causing serious injury or death.

For more information on the locations of the security system transmitters, see SMART KEY TRANSMITTER LOCATIONS.


Never leave the smart key unattended in the vehicle, as it may cause accidental or unauthorized operation, leading to personal injury or death. The vehicle can be operated when the smart key is inside the vehicle.


The operational range of the smart key varies considerably, depending on atmospheric conditions and interference from other transmitting devices.


If any door, or the trunk, is unlocked 10 times within a short period, the locking latch is disabled for approximately 1 minute.

The vehicle is supplied with two smart keys. The smart keys act as remote controls for the locking and alarm system. The smart keys allow the vehicle to be locked, unlocked, and driven without the use of a conventional key. Each smart key also has an emergency key housed behind a slide-off cover. See PASSIVE ENTRY, PASSIVE LOCKING and STARTING THE ENGINE.

  1. Single Lock: Press to secure the vehicle. The hazard warning lights flash once to indicate that the vehicle is single locked and the alarm is armed. If power-fold mirrors are enabled, the mirrors fold in. See LOCK CONFIRMATION.

  2. Unlock: Press briefly to unlock the vehicle and disarm the alarm. The hazard warning lights flash twice to indicate that the vehicle is unlocked and the alarm is disarmed. The interior lights illuminate to assist entry to the vehicle. If power-fold mirrors are enabled, the mirrors unfold. Press and hold to activate global opening. See GLOBAL OPENING.

  3. Trunk: Press briefly to release, open or close the trunk (if powered trunk is fitted). If the vehicle is locked and armed, the security system remains active while the trunk is open. When closing, if the vehicle is already locked and armed, the hazard warning lights flash after a few seconds to confirm that the alarm system is re-armed. See OPENING AND CLOSING THE POWERED TAILGATE.


    Make sure the smart key does not remain in the vehicle before closing. The smart key may not be detected if it is inside a metal container, or is shielded by a device with a back-lit LCD screen. For example, a smartphone, laptop, including when inside a laptop bag, or a games console. Also, if the vehicle is in an area of localized Radio Frequency (RF) interference, it may not be detected. If the smart key is not detected inside the vehicle, the vehicle locks. The vehicle does not automatically unlock. The vehicle now unlocks only with another valid smart key.

  4. Panic alarm:

    Press and hold for 3 seconds, or press three times within 3 seconds, to activate the panic alarm and the hazard lights.

    Once active for more than 5 seconds, the alarm can be canceled. Press the button and hold for 3 seconds, or press three times within 3 seconds.

    The panic alarm also cancels if a valid smart key is present when the START/STOP button is pressed.

  5. Headlights:

    When approaching the vehicle during darkness, press to switch on the approach illumination. Press again to switch approach illumination off.

    The approach illumination preset delay period is 30 seconds. This delay period can be configured to provide illumination lasting between 0 and 240 seconds. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.

  6. Emergency key access: Slide open the side cover to release, then remove.

  7. Emergency key blade: Remove and unfold.

  8. Door lock cover: If the smart key fails to open the vehicle, insert the key blade into the slot at the base of the driver's door lock cover. Apply slight downward pressure to the top of the cover and gently lever the key blade upward. Carefully rotate the door lock cover upward, to lever the cover off the retaining lugs.

  9. Door lock: Insert the key blade into the exposed lock and turn to operate the lock. The alarm sounds if the door is unlocked until the smart key is positioned correctly to disarm the alarm, or the unlock is pressed on the smart key. See ENGINE START BACKUP.


    When replacing the door lock cover, locate the top securing lugs first. Press down and inwards to locate the single bottom lug. The lug clicks into the locked position. Check the security of the cover. An insecure cover is likely to fall off while the vehicle is moving.

  10. Keyless entry and exit: Exterior door handles have separate unlock and lock sensors. The unlock sensor is located on the inner surface of the handle. The lock sensor is located on the outer surface of the handle.


Notify a retailer/authorized repairer immediately if a smart key is lost or stolen. A replacement smart key can be obtained only from a retailer/authorized repairer. The retailer/authorized repairer requirea proof of identification and ownership.
