Okay so I completed a couple of tests today. I just had to test this because I just could not see the car just stopping.
So I started the car with keyless. Pulled the battery in the key fob and drove away. I have to mention I live in a very rural area. I did the test on a deserted two lane back road. No danger to me or anyone else. So I drove for 20 miles and everything was good,,,until I stopped for a stop sign. Just like Bayhas said the car stopped running. I could see this as a problem with no warning.
So I went home and put everything back to normal and tested again. This time I did not get out of the driveway and the light came on telling me no key detection. Actually I could see how this could be handy if you forgot your key on a gas pump or something and were in the next state before you knew it was gone. The more I drove the more frequent the warning became. About 15 miles and I stopped in the road. Sure enough it stopped.
So it seems the car will not stop as long as you are rolling. I could test again and see how long I could roll but I have learned what I needed to learn.
Car is back to normal and thats the way it will stay.
Special thanks to Bayhas, without his post I would have no clue.
I may have been incorrect on the seat belt warning. I didnt notice it until the door chime was gone. When I start the car I get five chimes, light in the dash then it stops. I can then drive away without the seatbelt on with no more warnings after the initial five.
Maybe "someone" can guild me the the seat belt warning thingy so I can check.
