How far can you move the keys from your Jeep with it running?

Maybe this is why the cooling fan is so damn loud! To let you know it's still running!

Couple of years back I went to Universal with my son, we had a rental car with a FOB and the wife needed it for the day, so I drove us to Universal and she dropped us and took the car. 15 minutes later as we are walking through the security area, I noticed that I still had the FOB in my pockets. Called my wife right away. "Honey, turn that car around and come back here. And don't you dare turn that car off". :CWL::CWL:

I had a 2016 Explorer and just for fun started it and gave the key fob to my Nephew. Drove down the street and turned it off. Hit the start button and it started right up. Turned it off and hit the start button, no go and message "Key not detected" So as far as the Explorer goes it gave me one restart. Wonder of the Wrangler does this? I will find out if they ever finish building mine, D1 for 15 days now : (

I personally would prefer some type of safe guard built into the JL where it periodically checks for the fob signal and if not present shuts it down, this would deter theft of a running vehicle

I’m not 100% sure but I don’t believe it’ll start even once without the fob detected.

As far as dealers letting people test drive without the fob, that’s a no-no if it’s a stick shift. Even a seasoned manual trans guy stalls out every once in a while.
If you’re driving a stick without the fob you better give it plenty of gas on take off. If you stall making a turn in a busy intersection....das dat!
