Hmm I remember a long time ago (2009?) someone had a blank cut so he could just have the key (not the fob part) so he could take it surfing. I wonder if this is a newer change to the computer.

I am scared that the theft deterent system is broken, and just ot fully working. called dealership, and they said that it should not start with the key half folded, as it is a security measure ensuring that nobody can copy the key (dont know how that is possible) but he booked me in for service.
anyways, thanks for bringing this up MR.iNCREDIBLE, s I would have never noticed this if you hadn't.
interesting information..

you are welcome I guess, it was an accidental discovery on my part and I merely thought it was interesting.

I hope my find doesn't result in major work being done to your car....

Please let us know the outcome.

My 2013 2LT/RS does not start with the key not fully extended as Mr. iNCREDIBLE has demonstrated. Tried it yesterday afternoon.


Now I will need to test that it will activate everything when remotely started and not fully extended. I'll have to do that this afternoon.

remotely and not fully extended it will kill the motor and flash the Theft Alert on the DIC, same as if someone tried to turn the ignition with a screw driver or something or open the hood while the remote start was active.
