Its brand spanking new. I guess I'm gonna call a dealer and find out how much they charge because I know its different prices all over the states. Hopefully I won't have to pay an arm and a leg just to be able to lock the car as I walk away or unlock it as I'm walking to it. But, what exactly do you mean by try to use it? Do you mean try to unlock or lock the doors while its in the ignition?

Oh and on a side note, just found out today that if you have the hood popped but not fully open, and the doors locked, if you try to pop the hood, the alarm will sound. First time I've heard it since I have had the car.
