You look a little less suicidal by pointing it at the bottom of your chin. I was told about that years ago for my SS...but for some reason my head doesn't work as an antenna. Must be those implants...

I can't watch it now, i am at work but will throw this in. Last night a lady was having trouble with her honda remote. Engage it then walk about 20 feet and it would start beeping like crazy, then she'd engage it again and be good for about 20 seconds then back to beeping again. She looked like she was doing Tango lessons in the parking lot.

I've heard stories about those new-fangled keys. I keep a close eye on mine.

One of the brokers has an LS430, they don't break often, but when they do. They do rack up the miles, I think he has like 80k on his already.

That's interesting. I'll have to try it now.

I installed a keyless entry from eBay for $30 which included shipping. It was a generic kit that can have an alarm and light confirmation added later. I just wanted to stop using my key in the locks. I used the master actuator to operate the driver door lock to use the existing vacuum system for the other locks and cut out the other 3 slave actuators. It comes with two remotes and if I lost them both, it's only $30 for two more with a new receiver. Still, a new key is only $12 from the dealer.
