Remote start key fob question

Ok here's my question. I have an aftermarket remote start on my 07 and when I go to say the gas station to get a pop or whatever I can push the start button on the key fob for the remote start and take the keys out and leave the truck running. As soon as I get out and close the door they will lock. I was wondering if the factory remote start will allow me to take the keys out of the truck and keep the engine running?


Oh and with my current remote start if I get back in the truck and don't put the key in and put my foot on the brake the truck will shut off.

The factory remote start only works if the key fob is not in the ignition. When you press remote start, the doors automatically lock. Remote start lasts 15 minutes and can be done twice in a row before having to put the key in the ignition. You can even kill the truck with the remote start button.

This is where keyless go comes in handy. You just get out of the truck, and lock the doors. When you come back, unlock and go. I'll never buy another new vehicle without push button start because of that very feature.

You cannot use the fob to lock the doors while it is running, I believe. I will have to check this on my wife's Durango. It will stay running if you take the key fob and the evic will chime with a message saying the key has left the vehicle. But I don't know if it will let you remotely lock it. You may have to manually lock each door.

Can you use a 2nd fob to lock the doors and leave one in the vehicle? You have been able to do this in the past as I always have started my vehicle and locked it with another fob to warm up during the winter.

The keyless go would get annoying as my wife often leaves her purse in the truck when we go somewhere so I didn't get the keyless go. From the manual...doesn't state anything specific to a vehicle running.

Preventing Inadvertent Locking Of Passive Entry RKE
Transmitter In Vehicle

To minimize the possibility of unintentionally locking a
Passive Entry RKE transmitter inside your vehicle, the
Passive Entry system is equipped with an automatic door
unlock feature which will function if the ignition switch
is in the OFF position.

If one of the vehicle doors is open and the door panel
switch is used to lock the vehicle, once all open doors
have been closed the vehicle checks the inside and
outside of the vehicle for any valid Passive Entry RKE
transmitters. If one of the vehicles Passive Entry RKE
transmitters is detected inside the vehicle, and no other
valid Passive Entry RKE transmitters are detected outside
the vehicle, the Passive Entry System automatically
unlocks all vehicle doors and chirps the horn three times
(on the third attempt ALL doors will lock and the Passive
Entry RKE transmitter can be locked in the vehicle).

I wonder if its like my parents Mercedes. You can leave with it running as long as you have the key fob and the doors will lock automatically but only stay running for I think 10 minutes. It's a nice feature if it works that way because I hate to shut my truck off in the morning before its warmed up when I stop at the gas station a mile from my house on the way to work to get my pop and smokes for the day.

My current car, my wife's car, and my previous two cars with push button start all allow locking of the doors while the engine is running. My wife has to use the fob, but in all my vehicles, I could use the fob or the internal/external lock button on the door.

If it doesn't do that, you could always roll down driver window, lock doors from outside using interior lock button, use auto-window up... but then the trick is how to unlock. You would have to have the key out of the fob to manually unlock the door. IMO, if this is what you have to do, that's stupid as hell. I use this feature literally every single day because I take my daughter to day care, and I have my dog in the car, so while I'm inside, he stays warm/cool.

There's a guy on Youtube that has a 2013 Laramie with keyless go, that has provided some good video reviews. I sent him a quick message asking him for confirmation that the truck allows you to leave the engine running while locking the doors. Here's his response to me:

to answer your questions, yes with my truck I can get out and lock the doors and leave it running by using the key fob. I have not tried to lock the doors with the button on the handle with the truck running, so I don't know the answer to that one. I almost always lock the doors when I get out by using the inside button on the door. It is what I've always used in the past and is handy and so I am in the habit of locking the doors that way. One issue I have had. Twice now I have left the truck running with the key fob inside while I've paid for fuel. When I went to leave, I couldn't because is stopped sensing the fob. So I shut it off and then couldn't start it until I walked away from the truck with the fob and then came back and it started like normal.
Here's his review video:
