Default Reprogram Your Smart Entry System, Here's How.

Smart Entry is user programmable and can be changed to perform in 3 different ways. The following is the layman's description of each option, followed by how to change the settings.

Option 1 (Default) - Driver only on the driver's side, all doors from the hatch or passenger side.

Option 2 - The driver's door can open all doors. I have it set this way as I have kids with the carseat on the driver's side (it's the narrow side of the 60/40 split, so I still have a usable folddown space). That being said, it's more convenient to touch my handle before opening the rear door than to use the fob twice, or open my door and unlock all doors, or go to the hatch and do a quick grab (not enough to open) or to the passenger door. This option seems the least conservative of the three.

Option 3 - Drivers door and hatch only open those doors when opened, passenger opens all. This option seems the most conservative of the three.

From your user manual - page 30.

CHANGING THE DOORS TO BE UNLOCKED
Each time you push the lock button together with the panic button
on the smart key for about 5 seconds with the hybrid system off, the
setting for door unlocking will change as follows:

1. Driverís door unlocking mode: If you perform smart unlocking operation on the driverís door, it will unlock. Performing unlocking operation on the front passengerís door or back door will unlock all the doors. When the system switches to this mode, one beep sounds inside the vehicle and two beeps sound three times.

2. All doors unlocking mode: Performing smart unlocking operation on either front door or back door will unlock all the doors. When the system switches to this mode, one beep sounds inside the vehicle and two beeps sound twice.

3. Single door unlocking mode: The driverís door or back door on which you perform smart unlocking operation will unlock. However, performing unlocking operation on the front passengerís door will unlock all the doors. When the system switches to this mode, one beep sounds inside the vehicle and two beeps sound once.

A warm thank you to Danny of PriusChat.com for posting this information on the PriusChat Forum.

Can the key be programed to unlock the passenger door when you approach the car? Now the drivers door will unlock when I get close to the car. I would like the passengers door to automatically unlock when i get near the door???
Thanks (2014 Prius V)

Unless this is a new feature, none of the doors unlock as you approach the car. That would be unsafe in some circumstances. When the car is locked and you approach the car with the fob in your pocket, the interior lights come on. The actual unlocking doesn't occur until you touch the door handle.
