Button on NX roof

Recommended Posts

Hi,

wondering what this button does, found next to open/close moonroof buttons of my 2017 NX300H.

 

Pressed it repeatedly but cannot figure it out... Could be a mere placeholder?

 

Thank you!

Disables/enables the motion sensor.

Thank you for this!

Motion sensor as in alarm?

Is there a visual confirmation for its status?

Check the owners manual to be sure but it's usually something like this:

1) Press the lock button on your keyfob, motion sensor is activated (test this by being in the car when you do this and moving your arms around, alarm should go off)

2) Do the same and press the button, motion sensor should be deactivated (test by waving around in the car while locked, alarm should not sound)

3) After locking with the fob, press the lock button a second time. The hazards will flash again to indicate the motion sensor has been disabled. Again you can test this by being in the car when you do it.

Note: this is how it has worked on previous cars I've owned, my current car doesn't have a motion sensor and yours may be different. Check the owner's manual for confirmation or test as suggested.

Thanks again! 

Definitely testing this tomorrow! More fun than reading the manual 😉

In all honesty... I was thinking this enabled a wifi access point 🤣

love the reference (had to look it up 😎)

It's now one of those things that "once I've seen,  cannot be unseen!"

So, I got to test what that button does... Who saw that coming?

Joking aside, while engine is off, pressing that button cycles this message on console:

theft sensor turned off / on
