Step by Step Instructions
If the battery of the electronic key is weak or the remote control fails, you can use the mechanical key to unlock the car using the driver’s door only. Press the button on the side of the remote control Sensor Key to slide out the mechanical key blade.
Place the key into the lock in the driver’s side door handle and turn it clockwise to unlock the door. Note that unlocking the door using the mechanical key does not deactivate the Anti-Theft Alarm System so once the door is unlocked, press the button on the car door handle to deactivate the system.
To start the engine, place the remote control Sensor Key in the transmitter pocket. The transmitter pocket is the front cup holder. Make sure the transmission shift lever is in Park (P) or Neutral (N) and depress the brake pedal. Then press the Engine Start/Stop button on the centre console.
To stop the engine when the vehicle is stationary, press the Engine Start/Stop button on the centre console and remove the remote control Sensor Key from the front cup holder transmitter pocket. This start/stop option should only be used in an emergency and the Sensor Key battery should be replaced as soon as possible.
To lock the car when leaving, lock all doors except the driver’s door from inside by pressing down the locking knob. Once outside the car, place the key into the lock in the driver’s side door handle and turn it anti-clockwise to lock the driver’s door.
Your Holden is fitted with ultrasonic sensors in the rear bumper to assist in parking by measuring the distance between the rear of the car and any objects in the way. When an object is detected, the Parking Assist system provides an audible warning and a visual image on the Driver Information Centre (DIC) display in the instrument cluster.
The rear sensors are automatically activated when Reverse (R) gear is selected. After the gearshift lever is moved out of Reverse, the system is automatically deactivated.
If the system detects an object behind the car as you reverse, you will hear warning beeps that increase in frequency as the car gets closer to the object. If the distance is less than 40cm, a continuous beep sounds.
You can manually deactivate the Parking Assist system by accessing the SETTINGS menu of the Holden MyLink system. Select Vehicle from the menu, then Collision / Detection and choose Park Assist to turn it off or on.
Your Holden may be fitted with Rear Cross Traffic Alert that will display a warning triangle with an arrow on the RVC Screen to warn of traffic coming from either direction, behind the vehicle.
When an object is detected, three beeps sound on the left or right side, depending on the direction of the detected vehicle. This system detects objects coming from up to 20 m (65 ft) from the left or right side behind the vehicle.
Use caution while backing up when towing a trailer, as the RCTA detection zones that extend out from the back of your vehicle do not move further back when a trailer is towed.
For full instructions, refer to your Holden Owner's Handbook.
* Where fitted.
The Electronic Cruise Control enables the car to be set to automatically travel at a specified speed between approximately 30km/h and the car’s maximum speed, without the need to keep your foot on the accelerator. To turn the system on or off, press the Cruise Control button on the left hand side of the steering wheel controls. When turned on, a white control icon will be displayed in the instrument cluster.
To set the speed, accelerate to the desired speed and turn the thumbwheel control on the steering wheel to SET/-. The control icon in the instrument cluster will illuminate green, and on some models, the set speed will also be displayed. At any time you can override the setting by pressing the accelerator pedal, which when released, will return the car to the set speed.
To increase the set speed, turn the thumbwheel control to RES/+ and hold to increase continuously or toggle it repeatedly to increase speed in small increments. Alternatively press the accelerator and then SET/- once you have reached the new desired speed. To decrease the set speed, turn the thumbwheel control to SET/- and hold or toggle repeatedly until the new speed is reached.
To deactivate Cruise Control but not switch it off, press the deactivation button on the steering wheel control. The control icon will change to white and the Cruise Control can be reactivated to the previous set speed by turning the thumbwheel control to RES/+ once the car’s speed is above 30km/h.
The Cruise Control system is automatically deactivated if the vehicle speed falls below 30km/h or 25km/h less than the set speed, the brake or clutch pedal is depressed, the transmission is in N or ESC is operating. Cruise Control cannot be activated until the brake has been pressed once and for manual vehicles, it cannot be activated when in first gear.
The Blind Zone Alert detects other vehicles in your blind spot beside and behind your car in adjacent lanes. Its sensors cover an area of up to 3.5m on both sides of the vehicle and is automatically activated.
When a vehicle is detected in your blind zone, a warning symbol lights up in the relevant side mirror indicating that it may be unsafe to change lanes.
The Blind Zone Alert can be deactivated through vehicle personalisation using the Vehicle Settings and Collision/Detection Systems menus on your MyLink system
For full instructions, refer to your Holden Owner's Handbook.
Side Blind Zone Alert will not report an object if the difference in speed between your vehicle and object of interest exceeds 16kph. If your vehicle is being overtaken, you will not receive an alert if the difference in speed is 65kph or greater.
The rear USB port is only for charging USB devices.
If you are not receiving Side Blind Zone Alerts, check the feature is not turned off through the radio customisation menu. If the feature is on, ensure the rear bumper is clean of any dirt or mud as this can prevent the alerts from activating. Any damage to the rear bumper where the radar is located can also cause false or no alerts.
