Keyless System for Classic Cars: What You Need to Know

Have you ever left your vehicle parked somewhere, and then, upon returning, discovered that it was left unlocked? We’ve all done this before. Although there has been a decisive decline in automobile theft since legislators started making it a requirement that all automobiles sold must be equipped with an engine immobilizer device, this technology does not prevent thieves from accessing a victim’s belongings that may be stored inside the vehicle. It only prevents the vehicle itself from being mobile. So, whenever one’s vehicle is left unlocked, you won’t have to worry about it being stolen, but you will have to worry about losing your wallet, keys, groceries, or whatever else happens to be in there on that particular day. Not to mention, if your car predates the immobilizer, your car is a lot less safe than legislation can stipulate. Installing keyless entry systems for cars can help.

Don’t worry about forgetting to lock your doors anymore

It isn’t uncommon for people to forget to lock their vehicle. Maybe your hands were full juggling groceries or squirmy kids. Maybe you thought it was parked somewhere safe and you didn’t need to worry about it. Maybe you were planning to come right back to your car but got side tracked.

Keyless Entry Systems for Cars

It’s also really easy to forget when the act of locking and unlocking a vehicle, for non-classic cars, is so quick and convenient—you just have to push a tiny button. It’s become such a reflex action that drivers often forget whether they’ve locked it or not, and that means they might have forgotten to do it altogether. Now add to that mix the fact that, with classics, you have to remember to lock your doors the old fashioned way.

How passive keyless entry systems for cars can help

Some car accessory manufactures have sought to solve this problem by improving the current keyless entry system for cars by removing the button pushing step. The idea is that, instead of having a button-activated remote transmission system, the lock and unlock functions are activated automatically once the keys are detected within the vehicle’s transmission range.

Let’s say you are exhibiting your car at a car show. Instead of having to remember to lock your doors every time you step away from the car and unlock them when you want to show someone a cool feature on the interior, Your car’s keyless entry system will lock the vehicle automatically once you step outside the transmission range. Afterwards, when you re-enter the range of your vehicle, it will detect that the key fob is within transmission range and will unlock the doors automatically. Essentially, any time the keys are within close range of the vehicle, its doors will automatically unlock. The minute the keys step outside that preset close range, the doors will automatically lock and stay locked until the keys are back within range.

Will a passive keyless entry system ruin the look of my classic car?
