Hot Fob

Post by Tubemonster » Fri Mar 15, 2019 12:44 pm

Before I make a doctors appointment to check the circulation in my left leg, can someone please tell me they too have noticed how warm to the touch their keyfob is after a trip. I have keyless entry/start and have noticed it a few times now after getting in from work (about a 15 mile trip) and taking the fob out of my pocket to put it straight into it's Faraday pouch.

Can't say I've noticed mine getting warm at all. Maybe get it checked out.

As above, mine doesn't get hot either. Have you considered that you might be hot blooded. Try leaving it out of your pocket for a comparison.

Damn! looks like I'm making that call then. Might have to try the other one for comparison first.

"Excuse me doctor, but there's something wrong with my fob in my trousers.

"Let's take a look at it then. Gosh it is very warm.

"Well, they don't call me Tubemonster for nothing."

:lol: :lol: You may mock but I'm writing a thank you letter to VW because although they have taken away the heated steering wheel option they have given me an alternative for warming my hand(s) :D
