Docking position for key fob when battery is low?

I have a 2018 C max and I'm going to need to replace the battery in the key fob soon as on a few occasions I have had the "key not detected" message until I press a button the the key fob.

I have seen several videos for different Fords with the push to start feature that have identified where the key fob with a low battery can be placed in the car (a special pocket, etc) that will allow the engine to start. So far I have not seen any information for a 2018 C-Max.

This morning I had an online chat with Ford support and they could not tell me either.

Does anyone know?
Thank you.

Robert

This light doesn’t affect driveability so it is okay to use the car normally if the light is illuminated. If you let the battery get too low on voltage, you may not be able to start the car. Don’t ignore the light and change the batteries out to prevent this from happening to you. If your key fob doesn’t appear to be working normally, our certified technicians can help you diagnose any issues.
