You get carjacked sitting at a red light, and the car is or course running, and he forces you out of the car AND you have the Key Fob in your pockets as you run away, Will
The car automatically shut down as he drives off. ..??:confused:

To my knowledge no, when he shuts then he's screwed.

As someone else pointed out recently, in the USA - you get out, he gets in, he finds three pedals and a manual shifter, he gets back out again, you get back in. :D

The last four or five cars I've had have been push button start and none of them have shut down if you walk away with the key. They do tend to bleep like crazy to tell you you're doing something dumb though.

Unfortunately where I am you definitely can't carry. So essentially.. I'd be screwed. But that's where insurance comes in lol.

Does anyone know if there's a way that you can get a proximity sensor installed to make it happen though?

Aloha...With the FOB in your pocket...before the carjacker drives away (and you still have your senses...cuz you are mad as ****) couldn't you just hit Panic Button?

From the Operators manual...

Panic Button
To turn the Panic Alarm feature on or
off, push and hold the panic button on
the key fob for at least one second and
release. When the Panic Alarm is on,
the headlights will turn on, the park
lights will flash, the horn will pulse on
and off, and the turn signal lights will
flash.
Note: The panic button will work
whether any door or the trunk lid is
open or closed.

Turning On The Alarm
Pushing the panic button for one
second or more will trigger the alarm for
about two minutes and thirty seconds,
and the following will occur:
The horn sounds intermittently.
The hazard warning lights flash.
