I believe the two F350s that my stepdad just purchased have the intelligent locks and push button start. They are also 75K each! I understand they are not quite on the same level but if a truck that will spend 90% of it's life connected to a fifth wheel can get push-button why can't city cruisers.

You need the key since the tail gate does not lock and unlock via the FOB, at least with my new Canyon. But, I am sure it is so that the vehicles are not stolen from driveways when the remote start is activated. I know having the FOB in your pocket could solve this....

My cousin recently purchased a 2011 Chevy Cruze and he has one of these switchblade style flip out key/FOB combo units (stock image attached). Has anyone looked into programming one of these to our twins? I want all of the buttons and functionality that we have, but I would prefer the one piece unit to my key and remote separates.

Annoying yes, but not a huge deal. With that being said, I have owned a 2000 explorer with the num-pad on the door to get in so to not have something like that in 2017 is fair reason to be annoyed. No signals being broadcasted so nothing to record/hijack. The push button start would be a nice touch too since some VERY cheap cars have it, but I get the whole tailgate issue. My brothers saab 2.0t doesnt have a key per se. It is a compromise of sorts, you still need to turn the key in the center console but the key/fob are integrated. The chevy builder doesn't seem to be working at the moment so I cant read all the useless features in the convenience package such as lane departure, collision alert and whatever they call the light that lets you know a car is next to you, but a one piece key, REAL keyless entry, and electric tailgate lock is what I would have paid 2k for not features that make me a dumber driver. Im sorry but if you purchased the convenience package, you shouldn't be allowed to have airbags... at least for the driver. Tbh I am surprised people are more aggravated by this than the fact that using the key to unlock the door sets off the alarm. Would love to meet the designer of that amazing feature.

It’s 2017...shouldn’t all new vehicles with an enhanced package, like the Z71, come equipped with keyless entry and push-button start? My Z71 doesn’t even include a FOB design with a fold-away key.

I’m sure a few (many?) on here will claim that it’s not difficult to pull out a key FOB and key, unlock a door, insert the key, and start the engine. But for those that have owned multiple vehicles with keyless entry and push-button start, it’s unnecessarily cumbersome. I thought I cleverly solved it by simply unlocking the doors, initiating a remote start and then putting the keys back in my pocket. Then I discovered that you still must insert the key in the ignition (within 10mins I think) or the engine will cut out.

I’ve browsed this forum but haven’t found much regarding solutions, outside of some saying that they leave the key in the ignition. Since this isn’t a realistic option for me, are there any other solutions that owners on here have implemented with success? Or possibly a way to bypass/disable the key-insertion requirement after a remote start? Since I couldn’t find any recent posts on this topic, I thought maybe something may exist now?

Thanks in advance for any advice….even to those that will imply I’m lazy for not wanting to constantly dig into my pocket like Neanderthals once did. J

I found a while back this site.

Does the key in the colorado lock the steering wheel? If it does I don't think this could be made to work without still inserting the key and turning it.

Keyless entry/pushbutton start are luxuries, not necessities.

When I ordered my Duramax Canyon, the lane departure and collision alert was included in the towing package. Not optional. I guess because I bought my truck with the intention of towing a travel trailer, I don't deserve airbags?

Yes, it's a luxury, but it's also the only feature(s) I wish my 2015 Canyon SLT came with.

I understand your desire to have it but I've seen folks on here who seem to get all worked up about not having a particular option(s).

Are we as a society getting so lazy that instead of putting the key in the ignition and turning it to start/stop the engine, we want to be ab;e to leave the key in our pocket and push a button instead?

Well, I really think it would be better if I could just think "START" and my truck would crank the engine.

While you are at it, perhaps design a truck that I could whistle and it would drive up to the front door of where ever I happened to be, open the door, and I could step in without getting wet in the rain. (Working on that red carpet that rolls out and keeps my shoes dry as well.)

I think I would be saying the same things you guys are saying if I've never owned a vehicle with keyless entry/push button start. Have you guys ever had a vehicle with keyless entry/push button start?

No. I rode in a Lexus once. The young lady had just gotten it, I was afraid she was going to kill someone. She couldn't figure out if the hybrid was in gear, the engine was active, etc. (As a hybrid, it was basically a start/stop technology too.)

I am old school. Give me a lever to shift gears, whether on the tree or on the console, I want positive feedback of what I do. You guys keep this up and I may resort back to my old Wrangler for comfort.
