    Bingo! Figured as much!

    Nice link to the Pass-key. Never thought of those.

Similar to the imbedded chips in new credit cards. The chip cards have no battery but they receive and communicate via "induction" power circuits when placed within a few inches of a reader.

    Just IMHO.
    I always imagined these (and the pass-key style) to be either an RFID chip or a similar/custom system

    ...

    also, the memory seat feature has been this way on GM cars for a long time...
    the idea is that when you unlock the car the seat has already been moved to your position
    (now that they have introduced the 'exit position' feature it will move every time instead of only when the other memory position was used)

    i'm pretty sure that the settings in post #24 will stop that from happening - it's a trade off, i guess

    Re: Caution with your FOB

    I understand why they would do the entry seat movement when the door is opened because of a fellow forum reader not from GM. It makes sense that the seat could crush a big fat person who borrowed your car with your tiny wife's fob. I have unchecked the auto return part of the seat movement but I lost the auto exit function. Maybe I didn't do it correctly but it seems that you could have the auto exit function without the auto return function. I do like the exit function and it keeps the scuff marks to a minimum on the door panel. BTW has anyone come out with a clear protection cover for the nice Cadillac door jams? It seems a shame to have to be so careful to not scratch them up.

    1. Open the center console storage area and the storage tray.
    2. Place the transmitter in the transmitter pocket.
    3. With the vehicle in P (Park) or N (Neutral), press the brake pedal and the START button. Replace the transmitter battery as soon as possible.

    Re: Caution with your FOB

    I'm aware of the fob start detent but in my 2011 manual it does not mention the word "Dead" anywhere, only weak or low. I hope you are right and it does work with a dead battery but I would hate to find out. Can OnStar start your car without the fob? Here is the page from my 2011 manual. BTW, I got the two covers for my two fobs today in the mail. They are a nice fit and do not add much to the size and are similar to the cell phone rubber covers. I got them the same color as my car.

    Re: Caution with your FOB

    Here is the new cover for my fob. The top edge is so soft that you can remove the "Key" if valet parking is a concern.
