Getting Into Your Maserati
We were able to get hold of a 2015 Ghibli and while we believe this process will work with other Maseratis with a push button ignition, please note that we have not yet been able to verify this.
Retrieving the Mechanical Key
Unlike other manufacturers, the mechanical key in the Maserati key fob is not connected to the key ring. Looking at the back of the key fob, note the separation on one side only (bottom arrow) which marks the location of the key. Also note the button to push on the back side in the center (top arrow).
Push the button and pull the key out of the fob at the separation, as shown to the right.
Starting Your Maserati
Starting the car is a simple process. Touch the “nose” of the key fob to the Start / Stop button. Push the button with the fob itself while stepping on the brake as you normally would. The car will recognize the key fob and start even though the fob’s internal battery is dead.
