Maserati Key FobRetrieving 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 Mechanical keynote 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
