first i read that most key fobs don't work, & i went thru that
now your saying that it works too good, take them out of your pocket & hang them on a clip on your pants belt loop
this post is crazier than a person draggin a trash bag all the way to the dumpster & complaining that it ripped open
some people should not be given a choice

Talking Wild remote

You might consider wrapping some tape on the remote to decrease the sensitivity of the remote to see if that assists you. If it works all the better, if not it is a no cost try. Woody

I have had remotes that were a PITA so I polished the button with a dremel to reduce the height of the butto.
Enjoy, Woody

When I am at work, I take my keys and wallet out of my pockets and put in my desk drawer. This thread is quite funny. I've never heard of the fobs working "too good", most complaints are on them not working. As a caveat to the fogs not working, I have found that if I press the lock, then unlock on the fob, that it will jolt into action when it wasn't working.

So has anyone found out if this CAN be disabled by the dealership yet? I called mine today and they said they would look into it and get back to me.

Funny story on my end, well funny now, this morning I was furious though...

My truck is currently parked in the driveway due to a couple projects I'm working on at the new house. These projects are being worked on in my stall of the garage. Wife still gets to park her car in her side.

Anyways, last night I was crawling around under my wife's car, changing out her serpentine belt. Lots of fidgeting, leaning, and contorting my body since she drives a Toyota, and their engine bays are packed together so tightly.

Anyways, last night, we also happened to get about 2" of fresh snow too.

Anyone putting 2 + 2 together yet?

So I wake up early knowing I'm going to have to shovel and salt the driveway, and what do I discover upon getting out to the driveway? My Ram's windows have been down all night, and I have a fresh 2" of powdery snow blown all across my dash and front seats.

It is COVERED! On the INSIDE!

Awesome. I'm happy I can roll my windows down via remote while I'm in my garage and not know it. Especially during a snow storm.

Before anyone says "don't wear girl jeans", I used to be a skateboarder, and got to liking the loose jeans, so I still wear them now, just not quite as baggy and definitely not down around my ass any more.

Luckily for me, the truck's interior temp had time to cool down to the balmy 18 degrees or so that it was last night before the windows went down, so the snow was not able to melt. Took me 30 minutes of standing in the cold to brush out as much of it as I could. I ended up getting about 99% of the snow out, then I let the truck run with heater and A/C on high for a good half hour before heading out to work.

I'm going back to clipping my keys onto my beltloop with a carabiner again after this crap.

Be there - Done that with rain in Houston! At least you got the opportunity to brush most of the snow out before it turned to water!

Just happen to me this morning. Never happened before so on the rainiest morning in So Cal history (so they are predicting) I come out and my windows are rolled down and the inside of my truck is soaked. I need this Turned OFF.

Wow, I had no idea I could roll down the windows with my remote... Gotta try that tomorrow. Of course now that I know about it they will probably end up getting rolled down by an errant pocket bump like other's have reported! I can't believe the windows down command is even a feature... Seems like the practical use for it versus the obvious problems with theft of items in your vehicle don't make it worth it. I assume it's so the trapped heat inside can be vented before you get to the vehicle, like as you are walking to it in a parking lot or in your driveway? Remote start kicks the A/C on high, and the drivers seat air as well (if you have that option), what's the need in having the windows down as well?
