Keyless Entry System Part 2

Another method of remote keyless entry is called smart keys. The smart key allows the user of the key to unlock, lock and start the vehicle without entering the key into the ignition. The key is identified by the antennas integrated around the body work of the vehicle, and they receive the signals emitted by the key. Most of the systems have a push to start button that disengage the immobilizer and activate the ignition on the car. This is done by pressing on a “push to start button” as long as the key is within the vehicle.
