I just bought a 2018 MDX ADV with 5 button fob. I’ve had a hard time finding a good keychain to carry it and my other keys with. Wondering what you all have been using if anything to carry your fob around
Very nice and artistic.I use keychains from Sante Fe Stoneworks. I discovered them over 5 years ago and love them. I've got five or six of them, for various key sets, now.
The car should auto lock if doors aren't opened within a set amount of seconds. Check your vehicle settings.I use rubber covers on my fob as well (found on fleabay). They are available in multiple colors so that drivers 1 and 2 can be readily identified by the different colors. I think they cut down on accidental button pushes as they effectively recess the buttons. Still, I have come back to the car to find it unlocked, and considering the long range of the fob it is possible that buttons are getting pushed. An RF blocking case might be a good idea for security (repeaters couldn't be used to steal the car) but a real PITA to have to remove to use the car. Nothing's perfect.
Coming from someone who's had their garage broken into before - you might want to re-think that. It's normally very easy to break into a garage - I even broke into my own garage once. Garage door openers aren't that secure and make it easier to break in by just manually lifting the door (with some force) - the opener mechanism will just break.Wife's car key stays in the car in the garage
I can’t imagine keeping the key in the car or in the garage. As previous poster said. Plus if you have the comfort opening. Keyless. Having the key so close may draw more from the battery. If someone broke into your garage,why make it so easy to take your car?I have no other keys...just a garage door opener. I suppose I'm lucky. Wife's car key stays in the car in the garage...other MDX key is on a hook in the garage.
