yep,try it ! BUT you must also turn on the ignition with the laser cut key and have the "pill" in close proximity( either in the hey head or glued to the surround) within 5 seconds to disable the alarm.

5 seconds? Wow, they must have lots of faith in me.

Yea, at my age I don't move fast either. When I manually unlock, I immediately put the key in ignition and turn on, THEN get in the car and get comphy.

On my Tip I just go ahead and crank it while still standing outside since I don't have to push a clutch pedal down to start.

Strange. On my 99 C2, I can manually unlock the door (which I have to do every time because my key fob gave up remote 10 years ago), put the key in my pocket and can go about my business, loading groceries in the frunk, unload stuff, walk away. The car does not re-lock or set off the alarm. I can unlock, put the key in my pocket, never open the door and come back later and it is still just sitting there. Door opens right up. No alarm, no nothing. Just get in, fire it up and drive away.

Yea, come to think of it, it's my 99 Cabriolet that when it's locked and I just reach in and open the door from the inside instead of using the key that I have to tun on the ignition within 5 seconds to disable the alarm.

Sucks getting old and having Sometimerze.
