With Keyless Open and Keyless Start, if equipped, you can lock and unlock doors, access the liftgate, and start your vehicle without removing your key fob from your pocket or bag, as long as it’s within range.  
Here is information about general use, personalization settings and what to do if the key fob loses battery or signal power. 

Using Keyless Open on Your 23MY Cadillac LYRIQ

Keyless Unlocking from Driver’s Door: 
When you approach the vehicle with the key fob within a three-foot range of the door: 

1. Press the larger end of the driver’s door handle once to unlock the driver’s door.  
2. Wait for the door to unlatch and open partway. 
3. Grab the handle on the outside door trim and pull open. 

Keyless Unlocking from Passenger Doors: 
When the doors are locked and the key fob is within three feet of the vehicle’s doors or liftgate:

1. Press the large end of the passenger door handle. This will unlatch the door and unlock all doors. 
2. Once the door has opened partway, grab the handle on the outside door trim and pull open. 

If your vehicle is equipped with Keyless Open, it will be enabled upon vehicle delivery. If you don’t want this feature, you can disable it. 

Disabling Keyless Open (not available on all vehicles):  

1. With the vehicle off, press and hold the Lock and Unlock buttons on the key fob for three seconds.

When your vehicle detects your key fob within three feet, it will activate Welcome Lighting. Your exterior door handles will light up.   
When you turn off and exit the vehicle, the vehicle will activate Walkaway Lighting. You can adjust your entry and exit lighting and more in the vehicle’s Settings menu.

    NOTE: Never pull the mechanical key out without pressing the button. 
  2. Locate the key cylinder on the liftgate to the right of the center of the tailgate.  
  3. Insert the key into the cylinder and turn it to unlock.  

To start the vehicle when fob loses power:  

  1. Inside the vehicle, find the key pocket and place the fob into it. The pocket location varies by vehicle model — check the Owner’s Manual
  2. Start the car by pressing the brake pedal and pushing the Power button.  
    NOTE: The first time you do this, you’ll see a Driver Information Center (DIC) message indicating no key fob is detected and prompting you to place the fob in the key pocket. When you try again while your key fob is in the key pocket, the vehicle will start.
