My Camery has constant key
My Camery has constant key problems.
I dont think I will ever get anohter Toyota again they are not well built like they used to be.
I have a 2007 Camry Hybrid.
I have a 2007 Camry Hybrid. The other day I forgot to turn the car off when I parked. Four hours later I was outside and noticed the car was still on. The smartkey was about 40 feet away from the car. I asked the service guy at the local Toyota dearlership about this, as I thought the car should have shut off on its own with the smartkey being so far away. Toyota said the the car would have continued to run until it either ran out of gas or someone shut it off. Someone could have gotten in the car and driven off and the car would have continued to run until they shut it off. Once shut off they would not have been able to restart it because they would not have the smart key. I don't like their answer to this. I assume the service rep knows what they are talking about. Just wanted to share this little bit of info.
actually, if you step out of
actually, if you step out of the car with the car still running and the keyfob is on you, you should be hearing a beeping sound from out side of the car tlling you that the car is running and the fob is outside of the vehicle.
if the car automatically shut down every time you walk out with the fob, them you will not be able to warm up the car on freezing winter mornings and run back inside without leaving the fob in the car itself.
with any human invention, there is always some drawback but the benefits usually outwiegh them. same here with the smartkey, it is really convinient but it is not perfect.
I wish the alert 'beeping'
I wish the alert 'beeping' to let you know you've left the keyfob in the car or the car on were just a little louder, though. If you're in a high-traffic area, or hard of hearing, they can be difficult to hear.
One solution, though, is to use a Club and lock it to the steering wheel every time you leave. Even if you accidentally leave the car on, a potential thief probably will see the club and move on before they notice! The quietness of the motor is a little freaky.
