    I’ve noticed mine is a little laggy but still works. I’ll have to hold the handle for a second. It hasn’t even been enough for me to give it much thought honestly.

    Just noticed you said after the full 15 minutes.
    I assume it’s a safety feature that doesn’t allow the doors to be opened with the proximity sensor after being cut off.
    If you are in the vehicle then the key fob is in range for the proximity sensor to work. If it allowed the door to be opened from the outside then any random person could open your door. Hence the reason you have to hit the actual key fob button to unlock it.

    Just sent them a note asking about the Vet discount. Once I see what that is, I may order one today.

    That’d be pretty awesome. I’d buy one for every forum member if that was the case.
    Well everyone except @858_tacoma_guy because we know how he feels about remote starters. Lol.

    Only had it time out once, but it opened as it should.

    Well I bought my truck about 8 weeks ago. The remote start has been in for about half that. Lol it does it to mine Everytime. I use it all the time as I live in the mountains of British Columbia Canada. it's cold and we have about 2' of snow currently.

    Hate that you’re having an issue with the timeout not allowing a handle unlock. I assumed it was a safety feature as mine has done it too but I’ve not let it time out enough to see if it’s a consistent issue.
    Did you email or call 12 volt solutions? They’re customer service is phenomenal by all accounts.

    They are really good. I actuality picked mine up locally from the owner. They are very helpful.

    That’s cool. Are they a pretty big operation or just an upstart?

    @858_tacoma_guy this is why we like remote start.... this is after it’s warmed up some here. I don’t think it gets this cold in SoCal!
