All doors are now locked!!!!I assume the key hole would have been on the drivers door (ie the CORRECT side) if the Avantime was more successful).

It's amazing the things you find on the car after 2 years of ownership! Last year I found the "GO FASTER" button that a firm press of the throttle activates - on the auto. Big drop in MPG though!
Fan-tastic! Actually, I think this also works with my new found procedure (and windows down) as any amount of waving through the open window doesn't set off the alarm. But, don'tcha go leavin' nutt'n in the car now, y'hear!

My other cars are less unusual!
