I'm in and out of my truck so many times a day (usually while its running) its just a pain to use the key pad all the time. I had a cheap key made at ace hoping that if I had the spare factory key close (under the column) to the ignition that it would work. That's how the old remote start used to work. It's a no go on that idea. Dang near have to have it taped to the key I had made. O well I'll get used to itJust curious....why do you not like the fob built in to the key?
I love it, especially since I never put other keys on with my truck key.
Sounds like the fuel filters might need changed. I recently got back from a trip, on the last leg, I lost low end power, and the ability to pick up speed once rolling. I had the fuel filters changed, and this truck NEVER had the power it does now. I have never been able to take traction control off, lock the rear end, and light em up like this! (on pavement!!)I looked over a Buddies gov. issue 6.7 the other day (BLM) and was not impressed with the plastic oil pan and the drain plug. Looks like an off-road nightmare waiting to happen JMO. The oil filter hung pretty low too. This truck was an XL F250 supercab 4x4, probably had the 3:31 rear end, he said it was a dog in the low end and sure enough he could not make it break loose on gravel where we were. I thought they took care of that??? It reminded me of my 6.4 when it was stock. He was averaging better than 16mpg and he was impressed with that!! Does any one else have low end acceleration problems too?????? Maybe this truck has something wrong with it.
