To charge a cellular phone
The wireless smart phone charging system charges only the Qi-enabled smart phones ( ). Read the label on the smart phone accessory cover or visit your smart phone manufacturer's website to check whether your smart phone supports the Qi technology.
The wireless charging process starts when you put a Qi-enabled smart phone on the wireless charging unit.
- Remove other items, including the smart key, from the wireless charging unit. If not, the wireless charging process may be interrupted. Place the smart phone on the center of the charging pad.
- The indicator light is orange when the smart phone is charging. The indicator light will turn blue when phone charging is complete.
- You can turn ON or OFF the wireless
charging function from the Settings
menu on the instrument cluster.
- Setup → User settings → Convenience → Wireless Charging
If your smart phone is not charging:
- Slightly change the position of the smart phone on the charging pad.
- Make sure the indicator light is orange.
The indicator light will blink orange for 10 seconds if there is a malfunction in the wireless charging system.
In this case, temporarily stop the charging process, and re-attempt to charge your smart phone again.
The system warns you with a message on the LCD display if the smart phone is still on the wireless charging unit after the vehicle is turned OFF and the front door is opened.
For some manufacturer's smart phones, the system may not warn you even though the smart phone is left on the wireless charging unit. This is due to the particular characteristic of the smart phone and not a malfunction of the wireless charging.
For some manufacturers' cellular phones, the system may not warn you even though the cellular phone is left on the wireless charging unit. This is due to the particular characteristic of the cellular phone and not a malfunction of the wireless charging.
- The wireless smart phone charging system may not support certain smart phones, which are not verified for the Qi specification ( ).
- When placing your smart phone on the charging pad, position the phone in the middle of the mat for optimal charging performance. If your smart phone is off to the side, the charging rate may be less and in some cases the smart phone may experience higher heat conduction.
- In some cases, the wireless charging may stop temporarily when the smart key is used, either when starting the vehicle or locking/ unlocking the doors, etc.
- When charging certain smart phones, the charging indicator may not change to blue when the smart phone is fully charged.
- The wireless charging process may temporarily stop, when temperature abnormally increases inside the wireless smart phone charging system. The wireless charging process restarts, when temperature falls to a certain level.

- When charging some smart phones with a self-protection feature, the wireless charging speed may decrease and the wireless charging may stop.
- If the smart phone has a thick cover, the wireless charging may not be possible.
- If the smart phone is not completely contacting the charging pad, wireless charging may not operate properly.
- Some magnetic items like credit cards, phone cards or rail tickets may be damaged if left with the smart phone during the charging process.
- When any smart phone without a wireless charging function or a metallic object is placed on the charging pad, a small noise may sound. This small sound is due to the vehicle discerning compatibility of the object placed on the charging pad. It does not affect your vehicle or the smart phone in any way
