    the FOB will not need reprogramming when the battery is removed ... if you leave the battery out it might, but i've never tested that... i've always put a new battery in or the old battery back in

    There was a block on Wisconsin Avenue just south of the Washington, DC line that would render remotes temporary inoperative. This was 12 years ago and no big deal because this was before push button start. There was a TV station in that block with 3 large towers and we assumed this was the cause. I suspect the manual key and the console spot would get you going. I always use remotes and this is the only place that rendered the remotes temporarily inop.

    Ive tried this with all of my passive detect vehicles to include a 2013 SRX a 2012 Buick Reagal and a 2012 CTS-V. Pull the battery out of your FOB. Put the FOB in the correct place in your console (check your manual for your car's specifics) and the car will start just the same. You should have no worries about this.

    going back to the original topic, I'd be interested to know how todays cars do with security. I doubt that its all that easy to electronically steal todays keyless entry systems. Even garage door openers have had rolling codes for years. I cant find for sure, but I thought our keyfobs were bluetooth enabled, so one would have to be pretty smart to figure out the digital coding. And there's probably something that disables a brute force attack. We're not just talking the old days where a certain radio frequency worked. Even my old S-10 Blazer (early 90s) had PASS-2 digital keying...

    The SRX has always seemed to be very succeptible to interference from uninsulated wiring for closed circuit cameras. The Video store across the street from the dealership installed security cameras and screwed up all the SRXs. One of my customer's installed cameras at his business, and had the same problem. Insulated wires dont create any issues, and installing the fob in the console cradle always let the car start, but still can be very scary and frustrating when the car wont start.

    My daughter is in the Navy and stationed in San Diego and from what I understand that the electronics on the ships can reek havoc at times on the fobs for cars. When you rent a car in San Diego there are signs that state this. Don't know if this also include keyless start or not but I wouldn't be surprised. She has a new Camaro and I haven't heard anything about a problem with this but I'm sure i would be the first to hear something if there was a problem.
