    He's lucky it started if it was a Ford.

    Do you need to know, or care?
    That's one of the funniest stories I've read in a long time, too bad there's no video!

    Now let me tell you a story about why I hate Toyota push button start cars

    When I bought my corrolla in 2013 it was a push button start I thought that was the coolest thing At the time me and a couple friends went swimming one day and to get to the swim spot it's about a 10 minute walk I put my key in my swim trunks pocket and on the walk forgot it was there I was so hot from the walk i jumped off the bridge into the river and after a days swimming I realized my key was in my pocket tried to unlock the door and I couldn't so I used the key to unlock the door then I pressed the push button start the car wouldn't recognize the key so that was a fun walk home and a fun walk back to the car with my spare to this day the key fob won't work anymore
    What I do now is I take the door key out and lock the fob in the door of the gas tank

    I have a hitch safe and leave the fob in it with the battery and everything intact. Doesn't start or open the door.

    I've got my spare fob turned off and velcro'ed inside my vehicle. (don't ask). The mechanical door key is stashe underneath.

    I can't imagine being in the sticks and hoping I don't lose my fob.

    On the other hand, I'm not sure what I'll do when I hire a shuttle driver... where to tell 'em to leave the fob?

    Get one of those tailgate locks and put it in Faraday bag before you stuff it in there.

    Problem solved

    No bag needed. You can turn them off.
