Hey Jake, I like the idea too! Especially when I leave the keys in the car. I guess I could call OnStar but what if I leave my cell in the car too?? Who cares if your dating yourself, not physically dating...(took me a minute to understand) I missed the era of the key pad on the door thing as well. I wouldn't mind having it now. Better yet, fingerprint, voice or eyeball recognition would be cool as well as long as I can get into the dang car.Jake_99 said:
Smart that way a thief only has to break the window or pick the lock to take it. No need for any other extra work they'd have to do.... :thumb:Jake_99 said:Yeah, I guess it would be competing with On-Star. I know it's a big seller of On-Star to fix the keys in the car problem...Funny, I never had that problem with my Expedition...and I ALWAYS leave my keys in that car...
Go to an automotive upgrade store, and see if they can wire a hidden push button switch on the underside of the car to the chasis. Have it wired to your door locks so when you push the button it unlocks the door. Some Fire department units have that so that we can lock the doors and unlock them without keys. I would imagine it could be done on a normal Private vehicle. Just a matter of finding someone to do it. It is probably not common at all, so many thieves wouldnt even look for the button, just don't leave your keys in the ignition for them to see it.Jake_99 said:Why doesn't GM use number pads on their cars? I've grown so accustomed to my Expedition that I keep leaving the house to grab something out of the car, only to have to come back in to grab my keys. If they had the key pad option, I'd buy it.
Does your house have keyless entry too?Jake_99 said:
GM does and you can, just have to buy a Vette....THE TOOTH said:A lot of cars do true keyless entry. No keys to unlock doors, and no key to start the engine. You need the fob. That's it. It unlocks the car when your within 10 to 15 feet. Push button start. Toyota, Nissan, and others are doing this. Why GM hasn't started yet is beyond me. I have heated windshield washer fluid and a HUD, why can't I have keyless entry and start?
Or an STS, or XLR. The CTS has it too but you have to turn a dummy key in place where the real key would be instead of pushing a button.rolloffhill said:GM does and you can, just have to buy a Vette....
You'll never believe what I have....It's totally getto....2 nails hammered into the trim of the garage door that are wired to the garage door opener...I just take off my ring and lay it across the nails and magically the door opens. We had a key pad, but my husband had to keep changing the code so the kids...teenagers...would stay out of the garage. It's a secret so don't tell anyone. This is usually for when we go riding and don't want to bring a set of keys. K... y'all can stop laughing now!!Traclavelook said:Actually, my house DOES have keyless entry! I installed Powerbolts on the main entry door and garage/mudroom entry. Combination locks FTW! ;D
