    Los Angeles Times -- The technology is popular but quirky and there is no universal standard. Its problems are potentially serious.

    Old-school car keys appear headed for extinction, as automakers rush to install wireless systems that allow drivers to unlock their doors and start their engines with an electronic fob that they never have to take out of their purse or pocket.

    Many drivers don't fully understand how the systems work, however, leaving them vulnerable to potentially serious safety problems.

    In complaints to federal regulators, motorists have reported that they were unable to shut down engines during highway emergencies, including sudden acceleration events. In other cases, parked vehicles accidentally rolled away and engines were left running for hours without their owners realizing it.

    keyless entry is worthless on all makes and models of vehicles, it serves no purpose, it is just another excuse from auto manufacturers to get more money out of you
