freakin car wash...

Am I the only one who has problems at the carwash with the locks turning on and off? half the time I'm washing the car its flashing the lights and BEEP BEEP from the lock / unlock. Is there a way to make it not so sensitive?

Place your FOB out of range should work. If you are at a coin op wash (dont use the brush) not sure there is anything that you can do.

The cause is the proximity of the Comfort Access fob. You need to have it about 20' away. I have even experienced activating the locks by using the water hose when the fob was in my pocket.

yea, thats the problem I am having. The fob is in my pocket and I'm washing it, or I'm going through one of those drive through washes and its activating over and over. Drives me nuts. I was hoping there was a setting or something to make it cut it out. heh

Leave the key inside your car either on the drivers seat or center console.

Take the battery out of the fob when inside the wash. You can still restart the car by holding the fob next to the steering column.

+1 If the key is in the car it won't lock on touch.
