Not looking to start a flame-war, just looking for clarification.
From the original post: "I left it running while in park and ran inside to grab something."
While the OP doesn't state he locked the vehicle, I assumed he would; as everyone is right that leaving a vehicle unattended/engine-running without locking it would be foolish. I assumed the OP would not have been that foolish. Perhaps a mistake on my part, but I found no reason to assume he didn't from his post.
You are correct in that using remote-start won't let someone else operate the vehicle (even if they could gain entrance) without having the FOBIK present.
Anyway.... Back to the main thrust of this thread....
