That is how I think most systems should be.Buddy did this with his infiniti. Started it BUT drove away without the fob. Engine shut down after 10 minutes on a country road
And yes - his cell was with his fob
Fio the tlx i am not sure how far you can drive fob-less
That is how I think most systems should be.
At least if someone was to steal it, the farthest they'd get away is somewhere within 10 minutes driving distance.
Completely agree. I would hope its a distance/radius thing...P163 of the Handbook states that there is a warning buzzer and message if the remote is taken out of the vehicle. There is nothing in the handbook about an automatic shut off of the engine. Doing this would be dangereous. Imagine being the highway and the engine suddenly cutting out.
Welcome to the Forum! I am glad to see you made your first post.So is that how the push-start system works with the keys? If I don't have the keys inside the car it will shut off in 10 minutes? I thought it had some sort of range detection so if the keys are too far away from the car it will shout off. How does the car even sense that the keys haven't been near to the car for 10 minutes and then shut off. There has to been a radius detection programmed i'm guessing..
A little off topic but...Once I inadvertently left my fob in my tool bag and placed it in the trunk. I closed the deck lid, only to have it "beep beep beep" at me and open the lid. Not knowing what had happened, I tried again only to have it beep and pop open again. It knows when your fob is in the trunk...
I can relate.This I knew. My salesperson showed me this when I picked up the car. A nice feature for sure. This is coming from someone who has locked their keys in the trunk before.
So if I were being carjacked, would I help my situation by throwing the FOB out the window and continuing to drive? Or exiting the car at first chance with the FOB?P163 of the Handbook states that there is a warning buzzer and message if the remote is taken out of the vehicle.
