Relaying remote entry system signals via telephone might work if the signals were sound-based, but they're not. An RKE system transmits an encrypted data stream to a receiver inside the automobile via an RF (radio frequency) signal, a signal that can't be effectively relayed via cell phone. (In any event, RKE systems and cell phones typically operate on completely different frequencies; the former in the 300 MHz range and the latter in the 800 MHz range.)

We have a member in Mn that swears this works. I suppose it'* possible for some Cell systems to 'carry' the signal, but I would expect the possibility to be greater with an analog cell system, and impossible with a digital system.

I doubt the truthfulness of this, but I'll test it on both cars today with my cell and Katies.

I feel like I've been reading Mythbusters or something. I look forward to your results. I think it would be cool if it would work but don't know if it will. I'm a skeptic.
