I don't have a old one but I bet we hear arm rest and self dimming mirror :whistling:
oh my that is dumber than my 2011 Mustang GT where you turn the key and it turns the engine over till it starts... regardless if it starts or not let go of key and engine keeps cranking till it fires... never had a issue but I could see this killing the battery or overheating the starter motor.. I just leave my FOB in the lunch pail I take to work so I never noticed the beep beepI get what you all are saying. Just figured if it annoyed you enough it would be a simple workaround
I also own an s2000, talk about pointless keyless start. (turn key, press start)
Ya that was always my fear hearing the starter gear eating the flywheel teeth .... lolA lot of new cars are like that. The timeout should be set that it isn't so long that it'd hurt anything if it won't start. I've seen them get screwed up before and continue to attempt to crank after the engine is already running all the way up until timeout. What an awesome 'feature'.
FM Agents turned in their cars these last few days/weeksFord might not like you doing that to their car
