Where do I get me one of those fob holster thingies???I use a key fob holster which stays at my hip on my belt. I am not even conscious anymore of pressing the unlock button as I approach the vehicle or pressing the lock button as I walk away from it...so proximity locks would be of no additional value to me. I highly prefer the push button start over a key ignition, because I never have to take the fob out of the holster (unless I want to lock or unlock glove compartment or console). If anything, I would like to have the locks on the glove compartment and console lock/unlock with the fob...even if they activated with the doors would be fine with me. that way, I would never have to handle the key fob in the vehicle.
I havent removed the fob or locked a door since I brought mine home. I know not everyone can do this, but it works where I live.For those without the proximity locks, would you prefer a regular key ignition over the push button start?
I have/had other cars with push button starts, but they also all have/had proximity locks and all that makes sense as the fob just stays in the pocket.
I find the JL set up a pain as even though I have power locks I take the fob out, push the button, then put it back in my pocket.
On the Base I test drove I found the process even more annoying with the key and locks.
Does anyone else find they don't lock the doors with the Jeep all the time vs cars with regular key ignitions because of just wanting to leave the the fob in your pocket?
I mean, having a key doesn't change anything. You're just using a key to operate a switch rather than a button. It literally changes nothing.So my wife has a mini cooper that wouldnt start recently and it has a push button start. Trying to diagnose what is wrong without hearing the different sounds you traditionally would hear (for a novice like myself anyways) was frustrating compared to if you have a turn key ignition. When you press that button and and you hear no sounds and get very little response (in my case I tried a jump and even took the battery to be tested and it was fine) from the car, it made me wish we had a turn key.
