Not to discourage you, but please read the title of thread and post.Just bought a '12 EX w/premium. Had no problem pairing both cell phones but both when using handsfree the person on the other end complains of low volume. The phones are different brands. Is there any way to increase the volume being transmitted? Also, where is the microphone in the Sorento? Thanks
Responding to an almost year old post...with the wrong info.2 pushes, not one, and without stepping on the brake - it won't start unless you step on the brake
And it's not undocumented either.This has been pointed out before and the way most use the proximity key is to put it in your pocket in the morning and not touch it again until unloading pockets at night. This is about the only reason to actually handle the proximity key. Kinda defeats the purpose.
To clarify the "one button push to start", I think what was meant is that you don't have to go through an "accessory" position to start it up. You can put your foot on the brake, push the start button and it fires up.Responding to an almost year old post...with the wrong info.
To play the radio, you only need to push the start button once, as was originally posted. To turn on gauges, fan, etc...you push twice. Third push turns off everything...all without depressing the brake pedal.
Both the front drivers, and passenger doors will open straight away from the inside, despite what position the locks are in. It doesn't matter if the vehicle is moving or stationary.To clarify the "one button push to start", I think what was meant is that you don't have to go through an "accessory" position to start it up.

On a second item, I have been able to open a door without unlocking it. It seemed to be a physical/mechanical link so that as the door handle is pulled, the lock comes along with it. I don't remember seeing this in the manual, but I haven't read it that closely.
I have only tried this on the drivers side door:
I'm not sure if I like this or not but at this point, I think it's good. I have the lock settings so that when the car is put in park, all doors get unlocked. I think that's the default and I'd prefer that they don't automatically unlock. Still need to test out when this can happen, if it can be done on all doors, if the car is in motion, does that affect this, is this also possible at different speeds, etc. With this feature, you can change the settings so that the doors do not automatically unlock and still be able to get out of the car without an extra step of unlocking the doors.
- I was in the car with the doors locked.
- Don't remember if I had just turned off the engine or it was still running.
- I pulled the door handle, without unlocking, and the door opened.
- It unlocked and opened as if it was not locked.
Can others try this as well and see if it's the same for your vehicle.
While it is correct that you only need one push to start the car (with the brake depressed), that is not what the OP meant to say, nor what I responded to. The OP stated it took two presses of the start button to turn on the radio, without pressing the brake. In fact, it takes one press of the start button to turn the radio on, without pressing the brake (although another two presses to turn the power back off).To clarify the "one button push to start", I think what was meant is that you don't have to go through an "accessory" position to start it up.

Thanks. Good info. Easily overlooked (as the usage is rare)..Ok, this one IS in the manual, but maybe easily overlooked - today when we left for church I put the smart key in the smart key holder just because I wanted to try it and also show the wife in case she ever needed to use it. When we got there, I was unable to pull it back out - tugged and tugged on it, would not come out. Finally pushed down on it and it released, just before panic set in. Felt a tad dumb. If you use it, you must push down to get it to release! Says so in the manual.
"headlamp washer"? is there is washer for that?Couldn't find this in the manual: If you have your headlamps on (or in the Auto position at night) activating the windshield washer will also activate the headlamp washers. This happens only once during a given time period and not at subsequent presses. Not sure what the 'dormant' interval is.
