I’m not 100% sure but I don’t believe it’ll start even once without the fob detected.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 : (
Yeah, basically. When I test drove mine, the sales guy came running out and gave me the key fob. He said it would have kept going forever unless I stalled it out, but if I had, I would have been screwed. Good thing, too, because I stalled it out three times before I got off the lot. Oops.So basically you could start the Jeep in your driveway and throw your key fob in the house and drive around all day long as long as you don’t turn it off?
It has happened to me twice in my wife's Ford Flex.There is no safe way for the fob or lack of it to stop the vehicle without the driver choosing when to do it. It is that simple.
@YippieKiYayMrFalconI haven’t tried it, but if the Jeep is running and you park it and leave, I thought it would not let you put it in drive without the FOB inside the vehicle, even if it’s already running. Is that not the case?
