K - Keyless entry

05 June 2006

Keyless entry/starting - A means of opening and starting a car without putting a key in the door or ignition. An encoded card, similar to a credit card, is able to 'talk' to the electrics to open the doors and fire up the engine. Mercedes created the system back in 1999 but now more mainstream manufacturers, such as Nissan, use their own.
