  1. I'd believe you, but life has proven that the most perfect system can fail.
    Ask any accident investigator.

    There's a big difference in a negative failure and a positive failure.

  3. True, but they are both a failure.

    You're a smart guy, I'm sure you'll figure it out sooner or later.

    It is an erroneous statement so it isn't possible to figure it out as I
    can't read your mind.

    There are false positives and false negatives, Type 1 and 2 failures
    also called Type I and II and sometimes called alpha and beta failures,
    but there are no positive and negative failures.

  7. This reminds me of my father in law. He lives in a very rural area,
    while we live in the BIG city. He came down and we had to go to
    K-Mart. We were getting out of the car and I noticed he left the keys
    in his car. When I mentioned to him that he might want to take his key
    out and lock the car up, his response to me was " What if someone
    needs to move it?" I actually LMAO!

    It's still that way in my parts. Well, not everywhere, but in most
    places. Locks are mostly a nuisance, but are being used more and more.

    Sir , it is in so in some parts within the Commonwealth of Australia.
    On this key thing -you folk must have pointed the bone at me.
    Happened last night when I got in the car !!

    The chain of events went like this

    1 unlocked the car with the key rather than the remote .
    2 Alarm triggered
    3 used remote to stop alarm
    4 Entered car as normal started car
    as reversing the doos locked by themselves ? That has never happened
    before ( unless I set the auto lock thing via the arm rest )

    This may help hyundai tech track down teh cause.
    could it be a sequence within teh chip that controls this function ?

    Where's you FIL live? I'd like to move there.

    When I was a kid in rural western Wisconsin all the relatives used to leave
    their homes unlocked if they were away for less than a day or so. If you
    visited, and they weren't home, you could leave a note saying you'd see them
    later or whatever.

    Unfortunately they don't (can't?) do that anymore. And the politicians tell
    you America's best days are still ahead of us if you elect them. Yeah,
