Smart Entry and Push Button Start

What’s the Benefit?

Pilot’s Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock® and push button start make it exceptionally easy and convenient to unlock, drive and relock the vehicle.

The Feature:

Pilot EX and above models feature the Smart Entry system with Walk Away Auto Lock, and every Pilot comes with push button start.

  • The Smart Entry system allows the driver to walk up to the vehicle, touch the door handle and open the door, start the engine and shut it off at the end of the trip, and then get out, shut the door and just walk away—the doors will automatically lock when all doors have been closed (if Walk Away Auto Lock is enabled)—all without ever touching a key.
  • Likewise, the driver can open the tailgate with just a touch of the release button located above the license plate—it only requires that the driver has the key fob within 32 inches of the vehicle.

The Walk Away Auto Lock feature is enabled via the Settings menu.

  • From the Display Audio home screen, select Settings, Vehicle Settings, Keyless Access Setup, Walk Away Auto Lock and then Enable.
