Even with a dead battery it is supposed to start the vehicle if you put it in behind the start button... so they say at least

Re: Hide-a-key solutions?

Rod end hole will release the actual key. This will allow you to get to and from your vehicle. Traditional key store outside of the vehicle and offshore in the glove box.

Re: Hide-a-key solutions?

Question. How close does the key have to be to the car for the car doors to open? Like a few feet?

Re: Hide-a-key solutions?

If I recell correctly, the manual says the FOB has to be within five (5) feet of the door handle. If you go with the trailer hitch hideakey, the trailer hitch is still closer than five feet to the lift gate unlock button.....does anyone know if additional shielding of the FOB is required to prevent the unlock button on the lift gate from working when the FOB is stored in a trailer hitch hideakey???

Re: Hide-a-key solutions?

I have a bit of a different solution. You can buy a device called Zomm. What you do is attach a black fob to your car keys. That fob then communicates with your iPhone (if you have one) via bluetooth. Once the fob gets out of a certain range of the keys a notice will pop up on your phones screen. It will remind you that you don't have your keys and help guide you back to them. it does some other cool stuff too but you'll have to look into it more. The link is below.

Better than leaving a key to your 40,000 vehicle on a table somewhere or stuck underneath the frame.
