TIA = ???

Anyway, no that's not the case. Some people are upset, because they wanted to be able to remote start the car, and then get in and go. That's not how it works, though, and for good reason.

I believe after you remote start the car, it will turn off, either when you open the door, or when you push the start button, not sure which. You still have both keyfobs, though, and no one can steal your car.
