It IS possible to lock your key in the car, although difficult.
My wife and I went somewhere, and she decided to leave her purse in the car (her key was in her purse, mine was in my pocket, I was driving). She left her purse on the floor, apparently below the detection range of the car, and I was able to lock the doors with no problem.
This came to light when we parked somewhere else and I decided to put her purse in the glovebox (since I wasn't leaving my jacket in the car this time to cover it). The car "yelled" at me until I realized the problem. Had to take her key out of her purse before I could lock it.
Glovebox...car "senses" key and wouldn't lock.
Floorboards towards the front of the footwell...car had no clue key was there, went ahead and locked.
All cars that are equipped
All cars that are equipped with smart keys has a little button under the trunk lid so the person wouldn't have to fumbble for there keys or remote and press the trunk release on the remote.
Can someone please answer
Can someone please answer this fundamental question: can one leave the key fob IN the car when it is parked overnight in a parking garage? I live in NYC and normally park on the street, which means I do very little driving--however, I must sit in the car from 9 until the magic 10:30 AM (when it is "safe"); does merely sitting/waiting for 1&1/2 hours 2X a week drain the battery? The car would not start yesterday and had to have it towed to the dealership where they pronounced I needed to replace the battery. How I am supposed to conduct my twice a week ritual of parking the car and waiting w/o having the key? This is a real dilemma. Can I disable this thing--the opening/closing ritual stated above sounds positively insane!
well im no expert but o own
well im no expert but o own a 2007 camry XLE with the smart key. In the dealer ship they told me that if you leave the smart key inside the car, it wont lock when you press the door handle button. That also works if you leave it in the trunk. which has happened to me countless time. So every time i left the key in the trunk i just press a button beneath the camry logo and that opens the trunk. Im no sure that work for all camrys that have the smart key system. HOPE this helped
There is no danger from the
There is no danger from the wireless keys on cars for any medical condition. The power applied for these systems is far less that that experienced in many modern systems - household wiring, fluorescent lights, cell phones. The systems are designed and tested for pacemakers and such. Modifying your car is unnecessary.
Where is this button that
Where is this button that opens the trunk without using the Smart key?
Where is the actual key that pops out of the wirless remote??
Everything depends one which
Everything depends one which model your ICD is. I called St Jude personally, the manufacturer of my ICD. I gave them the model
Number of my ICD and serial number and was told I can operate my Camry hybrid with no problems as well as the smart key as long as its not in my shirt pocket. She suggested I obviously don't work on the car myself anymore.
