    Having never had a car that used the Fob and the dash start button, I was wondering what the distance the fob has to be for the start button to work. Also if your standing beside the car and the start button WILL start the car and the driver takes off, will the car shutdown when it's out of range of the fob? Or if you start the car and then get out to run in the house, will the car shut off? Thanks in advance.

    And after driving away like that, when you try to turn off the car, you'll get a message on the DIC asking "No fob detected. Turn off or accessory?" (meaning accessory position) So the car basically tries to stop you from getting into trouble by not having the fob available to restart it.

    At least, that's how my C6 works. Got that message when the fob battery was too weak to register with the car.
    Tested out trying to start the car with the fob outside the car. No go. Fob was in my gym bag right outside the drivers door. Tested with door open and closed, and the car told me there was no fob.

    I don't think there's a time limit on driving without the fob, for two reasons. First, it could be dangerous: heading down the road at 50 mph and suddenly the car shuts off and you have no power steering would not be a good thing. Second, on another forum, a poster described inadvertently leaving his fob in the house after he started the car, and didn't realize it until he got to his destination, and couldn't restart the car. Having never done it, I don't know if the C7 works the same way as the C6 or not.

          Not convinced that small difference in the flags would keep me from grabbing the wrong fob. In our case, mine has a house key hanging off it, the other fob doesn't. Makes it very easy to tell apart.
