I'm an ex-car salesman and have written a manual about purchasing a vehicle
without getting raked over the coals. The cost is only $10.00 and I
guarantee savings of at least $500.00 from the information in this book but
probably much more. That's a pretty good return on investment. Check it
cold day ... need a warm heater ...
usually the keys are in and the engine going...
exhaust puff marks the spot ...
good place is the post office ...
or a Fed Ex Truck can do in a pinch.
I am not trying to be punny ... it just happens.
??? Friggin' goofy...
Push button on remote start key fob... remove key... lock door on way out...
If worst comes to worst - punk gets door open... steps on brake pedal... car
dies.. no key to restart.
There is only one way to spell "DUH"...
Having your car "stolen" is one thing.... giving it away with a key left in
the ignition is quite another.
If a door is ajar, the door locks will still get a door lock pulse (if that
option is available and connected) and they will lock. Remote starts will,
as a rule, not automatically lock the doors unless this options is also
available and activated. It certainly helps if the car is equipped with
power locks to begin with.
FWIW, any lock can only ever hope to keep an honest person honest... whether
the door locks magically or whether we physically lock the door
intentionally doesn't mean that some enterprising soul will not come along
and decide he or she would prefer the door be unlocked...
Last but not least... I have yet to find a remote start that will not
function with unlocked doors... and I live in a town where it is rare to
find a car WITHOUT remote start...
It that is the way whether one wants a car or truck, all they need do is go
to any convenience store on a very hot or cold day and choose the one that
they want, that they will find left running as the driver goes inside, and
simply drive it away. ;)
