Best Answer

MyKey technology is a standard feature designed to help parents encourage teenagers to drive more safely.

MyKey driving modes

  • Belt-Minder: This feature effectively provides a six-second reminder chime every 30 seconds and mutes the audio system until the vehicle’s front occupants fasten their safety belts. The message center also displays “Buckle Up to Unmute Radio.”
  • Top Speed Settings: MyKey allows you to limit a vehicle’s top speed at four different settings – 65, 70, 75 or 80 mph, with chimes sounding at 45, 55 and 65 mph.
  • Screened radio content: MyKey lets you block all stations labeled as “explicit” by Sirius Satellite Radio.
  • Earlier low-fuel warning: MyKey provides a warning at 75 miles to empty, rather than the standard warning at 50 miles to empty.

More MyKey options

  • Driving aids such as Park Aid and BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert can’t be deactivated.
  • Audio volume can be limited to 44 percent of total volume.
  • Optional AdvanceTrac® setting, which limits tire spin, can’t be deactivated

Additional MyKey benefits:  The MyKey system also helps fleet owners promote good driving habits in their employees and customers by limiting top speeds to four choices: 65, 70, 75 or 80 mph

MyKey functionality varies slightly with some models. For MyKey availability and settings specific to your vehicle please refer to your Owner's Manual.
