Are these keys smart or not?
Off topic, but I thought one of the reasons M-B calls it the "Smart Key" is because the car will not lock if the key is inside?
This discussion also came up because someone wanted to start their car, lock it, and let it warm up. One guy suggested using 1 key to start it, and then your spare to lock it, but a guy with a 2000 S500 said his 2nd key would not lock the car when his 1st key was in the ignition.
I always lock and unlock my car with the smart key, and have never experimented around with this. Don't our cars somehow recognise even the key lying on the seat and will resist completely locking using the dashboard switch?
And what happens if we leave the key inside, exit the vehicle, and press the manual door lock knob down and close the door?
