I was at work today...staring out the window just looking at the sleekness of my new IS.....I pressed the trunk opening button on my IS and to my fR#$#aking surprise..the trunk opens.....
my car was over 200 feet away at LEAST....

man...what kind of alarm reception does it use????...FM or sumptin.....

i was amazed and at the same time pissed off that i had to walk all the way downstairs and across the parking lot to close my trunk....lol

Yeah, I posted a while back that my key fob can operate the locks from much, much further than stated in the manual.

I was concerned that I could bump the unlock button by mistake when away from the car and it might actually unlock it someday.

And yes, it uses RF signals.

I went to the FCC site and looked up the registration info based on the code in the key:

Denso corp.
314Mhz
(RF transmitter - probably FM modulated - binary data)

No need to worry TEG. From pg.13 from the manual.

You have 30 seconds to open a door after using the wireless remote unlock feature. If a door is not opened by then, all the doors will be automatically lockked again.
