But there are some reasons which suggest that these features should not be in cars. Here we are going to tell you what is the use of these features found in the car, what are the benefits associated with these features and what are the issues, due to which these features should not be in the car.
What is keyless entry and push-button start/stop?
As the name suggests, the keyless entry feature is used to unlock the door without the need to manually enter the key. Earlier car owners were required to insert the key and then open other door locks for passengers.
Now you can understand that this work is quite inconvenient. The feature of keyless entry allows you to unlock all the four doors with the press of a button without a key. You don’t even need to insert the key to start the ignition once you’ve entered the car.
You can put your key in your pocket and press a button to start or stop the car. These features give a feeling of great comfort to the car owners. One advantage of having these features is the operation of the boot trunk of the car. Many times after a purchase when your hands are busy, you can open the boot with just one button press.
You won’t even need to put your luggage down when you approach the car, with just the push of a button your boot will open and you can easily store your belongings in it. Also modern keys come with an authentication ID that is read by your car’s computer.
Only then does the car unlock to start. This is a great way to prevent thefts as the car will not move unless the correct key is present inside the car and can be read by the computer. With so many thefts happening all the time, this is a more secure way to avoid such scenarios.
Keyless entry and push-button start/stop have some disadvantages
While the keyless entry and push-button start/stop function have many advantages, there are also some disadvantages. For example the cost of this technology is high and it is added to the initial cost of purchase of the vehicle. In addition, the cost of repair, service and replacement of parts is expensive if it breaks down or needs replacement.
If it doesn’t work for some reason, you won’t be able to take it to a mechanic because the car won’t run without a key. Whereas in case of traditional keys you just have to get a new key made. In addition, many hackers can program a new key.
By programming the new key, they can connect it to your computer, which can steal the car. This allows the person to unlock and drive the car without having to look at the car’s computer. These are some of the disadvantages of technology as most of the people do not understand this side of technology.
