Car Warning and Advice

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

About a month ago, I had to buy a new car. My old car, nearly 19 years old, had finally had it.

After I bought my car, I noticed that twice a day my trunk was up and open (except Sunday). I thought since I always had my keys in my pocket, I was bumping them and opening my trunk.

Then one day I looked out my window and saw a man (Doctor ?) get out of his car in the Pediatrician's office parking lot. I had seen that car there every day during the week for a couple of weeks, but was not sure who it belonged to. Now I knew.

He locked his car and I looked out my window and my trunk was open. All of my doors were also unlocked.

I thought about calling over there, to get him to stop, but I realized that was not a good idea.

This past Friday night, I realized I would have to get the dealership to reprogram my keys. But then I also realized that there are only so many frequencies.

Years ago on a news program I remember a reporter being in a parking garage and pushing his unlock button on his car and another car lights came on along with his own. The reporter went on to say, to prevent someone from unlocking your car, to use the lock that is on the drivers side. Lock your car manually from the inside before closing the door. You can still press the button on your key to get in, but your car is safer.
