I've often walked up to the front door of my house and pressed the button on the fob.
takes a sec to realize it won't work.

Depends on which car I'm driving - mine or the company's.

Everyday. My Z 71 doesn't come with electronic locks. The wifes car does, she will fumble with the fob for 10 minutes rather than just unlock the door with the key.
I stood one day and just stared at her when she was finger fuckin' the key fob. I asked her to just use the frickin' key. She looked at me like I was from another planet.

It's probably been over a year for me. I usually check to make sure the locks work every so often, but I've been slacking on it.

I check and make sure the key still works about every 2 weeks.

My '05 Xterra only has key entry for the driver door and the rear hatch. Hell, it's not a mechanical connection anyway, just a switch that controls the power lock system.

You serious? So what happens when your battery is dead and the doors are locked?

My last two trucks have had combination key pads on the door......so I hardly ever take the keys out of the ignition.

My remote works reliably everywhere except in front of one store near the supermarket I usually shop at. I can park a couple of slots up or down from it and it works fine, but the three or four spots in front and nada- have to manually lock. My guess is there is something in the store (optometrist with a bar next door) that is running on the same frequency as the key transmitter - I suppose I could borrow a spectrum analyzer from the lab and check it out...

Anyone else ever have that happen?

Every day. You city folk can keep them electric locks.

My dad's pickup and his work truck do NOT have keyless entry. I think maybe last week I opened his truck with the key.

My mom's Chevy TrailBlazer, and my sister's Pontiac Vibe(the cars I am most in besides the two above) have keyless entry.

I'll say this for keyless entry...when you have your hands full with a lot of stuff...it's a pain in the di*k to open your car with the key...so keyless entry is a godsend.
Edit:
For all intents and purposes the pickup is a '97 Chevy and the work truck is an '04 GMC.

That's a damn good question!

The electrical system has a cutoff that's supposed to shut off all non-essential systems *before* the battery is drained, leaving enough power for starting. I'm assuming that the central locking system is considered an essential system.

My mom's 2000 Blazer we had worn off the labels in the 2 years we owned it...I don't think you can wear off the older GM keyless entry fob lettering, the older fobs(my grandmother had a '94 Buick Roadmaster) are hard plastic as opposed to a softer plastic on the newer fob buttons.

I don't go that far, but I love the keypad and will order one next time too. IT is really nice when you are warming the car or hiking in the hills. Just leave your keys in the console and don't worry about losing them.

The wife came in the other day and said she couldn't get in her car because the key wouldn't work.


I said show me and we went out in the garage and she stood there and pushed the button and sure enough it wouldn't unlock. She then told me she would need to use my car because she couldn't get to work, I just looked at her took the key and unlocked it using the key hole and gave her a " damn you're stupid " look.

Needless to say I haven't seen any pie since then.

Power locks is just one more thing to break on a car.
Link Posted: 12/19/2005 7:45:17 PM EDT
I quit locking my rig the last time some prick broke a window to get in and steal my shit. I finally figured out that I not only had to replace my shit, I had to replace the window too.

Now I just don't keep anything of value in my rig....and I leave it unlocked.

Well by that reasoning, you're inviting people to come and sleep in your car just like the Wi-Fi people invite people to use their Wi-Fi routers leaving it on broadcast!

Depends on which car I am driving on a given day.
