Re: What if you pulled into a rest area...

No, the doors will not unlock if the fob isn't within range of the outside of the vehicle on the door specifically being touched to open it. I know this to be a fact since if I'm on the driver's side with my fob and my wife is on the passenger side touching her door does nothing. Additionally, if the fob is sensed on an interior sensor it overrides any "leakage" to the exterior sensors.

Bottom line, sleep away without worry.

I do have a very pretty mouth.
If can't say something nice about Detroit, then don't say anything at all!

Re: What if you pulled into a rest area...

I remember someone mentioning on a post long ago that the only way to lock your keys inside the vehicle is press the lock button on fob while when sitting inside. So if you press the lock button on the fob while inside the vehicle the doors will lock, contrary to pressing lock button on door handle (doors will not lock if fob is detected inside). And like someone mentioned above, since the fob is not outside the vehicle the doors cannot be unlocked via proximity entry, if that makes sense.

I think you should be safe if you lock the doors by following instructions from first post in this thread:

Is this method of Locking yourself out universal?

Re: What if you pulled into a rest area...

Also, if the system works anything like Toyota/Lexus' it won't work when the engine is running...

Unless its running off the remote start of course

dubwarren is a glorious beacon of light
This question/topic sounds like the start of a bad movie with some guy making a classic horror movie mistake. And I'm on the couch yelling "don't pull in to that rest stop!!!!"

You can lock your keys inside by punching the lock button on the inside of the door.
