: : According to the brochure, "each time I start the ignition, the system randomly selects a secondary code. The car will not start without using one of my matching keys." I received four keys for my car. If this protection is true, only one of my keys should start the engine. However, all four keys can still start the engine. What am I missing here?

: i think the computer can handle 4 keys becuase all 4 original keys have chips in them

: : The brochure also said once I lock the car with the remote, the door cannot be unlocked from the inside. Wrong! I can still unlock the doors using the unlock button on the center console.

: if it didn't work that way and you armed the alarm with a passenger inside they would not be able to get out
