Hmm, that might not be so bad...was thinking if you opened the door it would shut down. Maybe I need more sleep before I read through the FF forums?

I agree, that's an insane idea, especially when you consider they designed the system...you'd think they would have come up with a relay that acts like the FOB. Oh wait, we're talking about about Ford engineers...never mind. I could right a four page essay on some of their less than wonderful ideas.

With all of that said, this is what I'm going to need to use the OEM key FOB and have a blonde friendly remote start?
