My truck will unlock if it can "hear" the key fob within or around the vehicle


I have conflicting feelings about anything that decides how to behave depending on whether the keyfob is within range of the vehicle or not.

Actual scenario:

My dad got in his car, hit the push-to-start button, drove to Store A and dropped off my mom, and went on to continue on his way to Store B. Before he got out of the parking lot (of Store A), he got a warning the keyfob was no longer in range. Before he could figure out what was going on, he was already in traffic and couldn't just pull over. That's when he realized he didn't have his keys on him.

How did he manage to leave the garage in the first place? Because my mom had the spare key in her purse as she sat right next to him in the car. The car was still running when my dad dropped her off, so it wasn't until he started driving away that he got the warning. He had to turn around and chase my mother down in the store to get her key from her purse.

I can just imagine if she had taken a bus or a subway or whatever, and wouldn't have been able to get back in touch. My dad would've been stuck in a vehicle he couldn't leave (and have to leave the engine running), or else he wouldn't have been able to get it started again.

His newer car seems to have a much shorter range (inches, rather than tens of feet), so he's now getting the warning a lot sooner.
