Key-less ignition system
The driver no longer carries a key with a key-less ignition system. But he carries a fob which sends out a radio signal that authorizes the car to start. Either with a push of a button or the turning of a switch, you can do this. A circuit board, a radio transmitter, a battery and an antenna is present inside the fob. When you are generally within 5 to 10 feet away from the vehicle, press the button to unlock doors.
