I have a malfunction where the starter does not recognise the fob. I placed it in the console but still won't start. The fob has a key extraction. Is there a key hole somewhere to manually start the car "old fashioned" style? I can't find the key hole!
There's a small round cover on the steering column (where you'd expect a key to go in a traditional car with a keyed ignition). Peel that cover back and you'll see a key hole. Put the key in there. It's designed to let you start the car with a dead battery in the key fob.
