    Default Keyless engine

    i like to know if somebody have the list of all car equiped with keyless engine (smart key for toyota). With the keyless system, you can start you car without the key, just have the key in you pocket and the door will unlock and you can start the car by pussing a buttom.

    So if somebody have a list of car equiped with this feature, let me know

    A remote starter can be placed in any vehicle. Most vendors will not place them in manual transmission cars, but it can be done.

    The Caddy XLR (Corvette) has it also.

    What is your reasoning for the thread? Just like you would take the keys out of the ignition to prevent re-start at an accident scene, remove the fob from the cabin. If it's a woman take her purse and put it in the chief's car. If it's a male patient look through his jacket pockets and again take it away from the area.

    If you do your job correctly and disconnect the battery immediately you won't have to worry about accidently leaning on the dashboard and starting the car.

    You're absolutely right, but i want to inform my staff about the possibility of a car running without any key in the dashboard.

    Here's a keep it simple thought....if we consider all cars can do this, we won't be wasting time determining makes/models and looking them up in reference books, and we can then act accordingly.

    Here is a slightly larger list of companies who use it, and what they call it. From here I would think you could look up the individual companies and the name they use to show what vehicles have it. I'd do it, but Im at work (not a FD ) and don't have the time currently.

    From Wikipedia:

    Acura:
    Audi: Advanced Key
    BMW: Comfort Access
    Cadillac: Adaptive Remote Start & Keyless Access
    Infiniti: Infiniti Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition
    Lexus: SmartAccess
    Mercedes-Benz: Keyless Go integrated into SmartKeys
    Mitsubishi Motors: FastKey
    Nissan: Intelligent Key
    Porsche: Porsche Entry & Drive System
    Toyota: Smart Key System
    Mazda: Advanced Keyless Entry & Start System
    Suzuki: SmartPass Keyless entry & starting system
    The Toyota Camry is available with the advanced key as an option starting with the 2007 model year.

    The Nissan Versa is available with Intelligent Key as an option on the 2007 SL model.

    Yes prius have that since 2005, so it important to know because if a firefighter arrive and he don't hear the motor and i don't see the key in the dashboard, i will maybe think everything it safe but it not
