Remote Start Don't

When the man at the remote start install place tells you that when your car starts, and stops with the remote, it will unlock, and then re-lock your doors. Take this as a warning.

Do not start your car with it, then let it run while you scrape off snow, then get in put the key in the ignition, and then go back in the house for your cell phone.

Because the remote timer will run out.

The car will shut off.

The doors will lock.

Then your keys will be locked in your car hanging from your ignition. And since they are in the ignition, the fancy little unlock/lock fob that came with the car, will not work. IT has a safety feature that disables it when the keys are in the ignition.

HOW IS IT UNSAFE FOR ME TO BE ABLE TO LOCK AND UNLOCK MY CAR WHEN THE KEY IS IN THE IGNITION?

At the very least disable the lock button but not the UNLOCK!!

I mean really, there are manual ways for me to lock my doors when the key is in the ignition, you'd think the safety feature would be that you will always be able to unlock them with the little fob!

This has not been a fun week.

    Trust me you are not the first one to do this. Simon did the exact same thing when he first got his new car.
