    I have a friend who owns a Toyota Camry. His car is equipped with the smart entry and push-start engine. He once had a problem because his remote control battery malfunctioned. He had no idea how to unlock his car because with the smart entry his car has no keys. Luckily, after a moment his remote controlled functioned. He immediately started his car a bought new battery.

    He shared this story to me when he knew I am carrying a product like that. He asked me how will we cope up with that same problem for our product. For POWERTEC PKE, we have this feature called "emergency decoding". We can unlock and start the car even if we lost the remote control of if the remote control's battery got drained.

    Yep. I guess this is a standard feature for all push start system.

    Hindi ba dalawa yung remote key?
    (hopefully may alternative naman pala, "emergency decoding".)

    We have 2 remote cards but 1 card is for emergency use only if your primary card's battery got drained.

    Doesn't the Camry's remote have a hidden key inside to open the doors? My Prado's remote has one. And if the remote's battery got drained, just hold the remote against the push-start button for a while and you can start the car.

    Pardon me as I didn't get the full details of his troubleshooting. It was just a phone call conversation. He asked me about my product's function. If we meet up, I will ask him the full details.

    spare battery for your remote would be nice to have in the glove compartment
