What sort of "something"?
If you're talking losing it, then the only way around it is to hide a key as suggested above.
If you're talking a dead fob, there are ways around that.
- You can unlock the doors with the key inside the fob. It will set off the alarm, but you'll be able to deactivate it once inside the vehicle.
- You can start the vehicle by holding the tip (non-key end) against the Run/Stop button. This will halt the above car alarm condition.
- If you subscribe to the UConnect service, you can use the phone app to unlock the vehicle.
- If all else fails, pull the battery from the fob for a minute, then put it back in. That may give enough juice to get you to the nearest store to buy a replacement.
My prediction is this will soon be a thing of the past. I'll bet within a few years, you'll be able to use your smart phone as a fob.
I'd actually pay for the UConnect service if it included that ability. I'd love to have it recognize my phone as I approach so I don't even need the fob at all.
