Mitsubishi vehicles have many helpful convenience features, demonstrated by the Mitsubishi key fob’s utility. The signature key fob is at the heart of your vehicle’s convenience, with features such as keyless entry, push-button start, and automatic door locks. Learning how to program and use your Mitsubishi key fob’s features will add more convenience to your day-to-day drives. In this guide, our team will help you explore how to get the most out of your Mitsubishi key fob.
The latest technology for Mitsubishi key fobs is the Free-Hand Advanced Security Transmitter (FAST) key entry system. The FAST key entry system significantly increases your Mitsubishi vehicle’s overall convenience. This system works by allowing you to simply unlock your car by gripping the door handle while having the key in your purse, bag, or pocket. It also allows you to unlock the vehicle by pressing a button on the trunk or buttons near the front door handles.
The FAST key entry system adds convenience and gives added security by eliminating the need to search for a remote control or key when in a poorly lit area or while carrying packages. In addition, this system allows you to start the car without a key in one of two ways. The first is by pressing the ignition switch to unlock it and turning it to start the engine. The second is by pressing the ignition start button that is part of the One-Touch Start System (OSS).
Other available features on your Mitsubishi key fob include remote start and power liftgate open and close. The key fob’s remote start feature allows you to start your vehicle to warm or cool the interior, depending on the season. You can also access your Mitsubishi SUV’s cargo area by using your key fob to open and close the power liftgate.
Mitsubishi key fobs offer secure and convenient access to your vehicle. Not only is using your key fob secure, but it is a quick and easy way to gain access to your car’s interior.
