Have you ever found yourself unable to unlock your SOCAR due to a low signal area or 2G/3G connection? Or the app doesn’t seem to launch? Well, we’re putting this problem to rest!

With the upgraded Bluetooth SmartKey, you can now unlock your SOCAR at all times no matter the connectivity of your phone: Whether your on the lowest level of the car-park, the peaks of Cameron Highlands, or even in the deepest jungle, you can now put  your mind to ease when you take your SOCAR on an adventure.  

Here’s 3 easy steps to unlock your SOCAR in a low-signal area: 

Step 1: Set your phone to Airplane Mode. 

Step 2: Force close the SOCAR app. 

Step 3: Launch the SOCAR app (Make sure your Bluetooth is activated)

Switch off your Bluetooth and switch it on again. Then you just need to repeat the steps above.

Here’s what it’ll look like once it’s activated in a low-signal area!
