    Do you REALLY think your channel deserves more subscribers/viewers than f'ing TOP GEAR? I know it's gone downhill since the cool hosts left, but it's still leagues ahead of this channel. This video alone is proof that you simply do not know what you are talking about.

    When I have Honda Accord parked next to my Tacoma. Both vehicles rush me on the amount of time I have to go open the doors after I unlock them with the remote before they lock themselves up again. Vice versa. Then I have to go back inside the house for the key to unlock them because I didnt know they would lock themselves up again. -.-

    Scotty , you have no idea what you're talking abou about, the reason why the car wouldn't start is not because of RF, it's because the car has a voltage sensor control module that keeps the car in check and stops the run mode when the car senses an abnormally low voltage or over current draw. RF will not effect this vehicle. "Electronics Engineer for over 50 years"

    Scotty, my computer's battery backup died. As you probably know it's cheaper to buy an new one rather than replace the old battery. But, I got to thinking, this thing is an inverter. So, I kept my old one and was wondering; Can you remove the old battery and hook it up to your car's battery? The battery is toast, but the inverter should still work, right?

    Those radio transmitter type adapters have jammers to clean up the frequency of your choice. They do a wide range to make sure the existing station doesn't cause white noise. I only use these adapters to listen to tunes on my phone through the radio, since it's a base model pickup its only got radio and roller windows. I'm probably not having problems because 05's don't have much for RF sensors or controls. I've heard horror stories of some trucks that have RF gas pedals, so I'll be installing a proper aux charger and headphone jack on any new truck anyway.

    If you wire a mic into some speakers (ex: bluetooth speaker or something) and wave it around USB ports, you can pick up interference. I did that a while back when USB3 ports were new, and ultra-thins were popular. Some of the first USB3 ports had 1.5 - 2 foot interference bubbles around them. Just plug the mic into an audio port, record or play it back (or stereo mix in Windows) and then get it close and have a listen. When my smartphone is checking for emails it has a 3 foot interference bubble. Makes clicking noises on nearby low quality speakers. They are great for detecting interference. If you have an 90's speakers left over, keep them as a tool.

    I put four solar panels on the roof of my Town & Country, two deep cycle batteries run through a 4,000 watt inverter that can power a microwave, a TV, charge and run a computer and a cellphone. This separate electric system can supply high power, is reliable and doesn't interfere with the minivans own electrical system.
