Had thought about that too, but it would require turning the car off, getting out, locking the doors, and then going thru the sequence to restart w/the fob. Also the only sport model that comes (standard) w/the remote engine start is the 10AT.Do You have the Warm Up Feature on Your Remote ?
Seems that would do the Trick , I take Your Trying Not to get a Ticket - Double Parked ? Can't Think of any other Reason to leave it Running ..
Thumbs up @Keyboard.... how quick we forget the simple things as technology advances (heck I bet very few of us even think about or use that key... I know I don't)... the good old "KISS" method always shines thru.... going to have to try this method to confirm it'll work and "technology" will not prevent it.Simple ... Just lock the car with your builtin physical key. The car will stay running, but the doors will be locked.
That's exactly what I do. Do you remember this post?<snip>
I think if I wanted to use this option often I would look into getting a stand alone key made (one w/o the fob) to carry so I wouldn't have to go thru the process of detaching the one in the fob every time I wanted to do this.
As I said in that post "... good idea", and I didn't say in the post you quoted it was my idea. :wink::smile_big:
No, no, no ... you took my response the wrong way. :surprise:As I said in that post "... good idea", and I didn't say in the post you quoted it was my idea. :wink::smile_big:
Just stating that is what I would do if I wanted to achieve what the OP was wanting to do if that's the way they decided to do it. Besides that thread was about another topic (Disable remote opening of all windows & moonroof) and who's to say the OP of this thread had read that thread/post... doesn't hurt to repeat a good idea if it's applicable in this situation. :grin:
No worries, we good. Just wanted to make sure you hadn't been offended... sometimes written responses can't be interpreted as live interactions... I'd err on the side of making sure no offense were taking on written response vs. assuming there was not.No, no, no ... you took my response the wrong way. :surprise:
I wasn't implying anything negative. I was agreeing with you and letting others know that's what I do (i.e., carry a stand alone key). In other words, I was reinforcing what you said. Plus, I wasn't sure if you remembered the old discussion, so that's why I referred back to it.
Sorry if I sounded defensive in my earlier response.:sad:
You can't really do that. But you can stop the engine, step out of the car, then lock the car using key fog, and do a remote start from the key fob. The remote start won't work unless the car is locked first.does anyone know how to lock your car while its on and you double park?
You must not have seen/read Reply #6? Along with that not all trim models come with remote start.You can't really do that.
