Eventually, battery in the key fob for the Chevy Equinox will fully drain. So what happens if you’re out in the middle of nowhere with a dead fob battery? How will you start the vehicle?
Don’t worry! Chevy thought of that. There is still a way you can start the Equinox ignition even when the fob is dead. We show you how with this guide.
- Place the key fob in the front cabin cup-holder.
- Place the vehicle gear in P or N.
- Hold the brake pedal then press the “Engine Start/Stop“.
The Equinox should start up just fine. If it doesn’t start, try re-positioning the key fob in the cup-holder, then try again.
Replace the battery with a CR2032 battery or equivalent as soon as possible.
