What problems have you experienced with your keyless entry remote?

I am working on the design of remotes and Would like to hear from Ford
owners about problems with remotes.

the unlock button on the most used remote wears out and at some point you
have to press on the button pretty hard for it to work, also had one where
the little part that attaches to the key chain broke, plastic could be too
thin.

Even though the buttons are clearly labeled, someone will stand one to two
feet from the car, and continue to hit the incorrect button, and become
upset that their door didn't unlock or their truck didn't open. They will
continue to hit the wrong button for five to ten minutes, even though in the
same time they could have used the key to open the vehicle, or stopped and
studied the idiot proof symbols. You know the remote isn't dead because the
car lights are flashing, it's just the user is hitting the incorrect button.

They should always have a light so you at least know that the battery and
buttons are working.

When you have the keyless entry in your back pocket and bend down and the
alarm goes off (happened yesterday). Maybe some way to make the buttons less
likely to engage unless used by the hand.

Re: What problems have you experienced with your keyless entry remote?

I have an 03 Explorer with a button that opens the tailgate window. On many
occasions, I have to stop and close the window because of the window button
getting pushed while in my pocket. The alernative is to check the window
everytime before using the vehicle

A remote is a gimmick. I would rather use a key.
