Keyless Drive Off

#1 by Garry , Wed Dec 04, 2019 12:24 pm

Curiosity question - I have a Barbarian Series 5. If I start the vehicle keylessly with the key in my pocket and then get out to, say, defrost the windows, if someone else jumps in and drives off will the vehicle stop after a while or will it just keep on going? I don't want to test it because I don't want to be 5 miles down the motorway without a key.

So best not to drop the key out of the window on a motorway either I guess.

I've tried about 150m away and the vehicle was still running (unlike myself). Lol
