> Homelink - Works Even Without Key?

I have a 2001 V70 T5. It has 'homelink' for opening the garage dooor.

The homelink buttons work whether or not the key is in the ignition. I used to think this was great, until I bought a different car where the homelink buttons only work if the key is in and turned on.

It finally dawned on me that if the homelink working without the car key means that if my car is in the driveway (who actually has room in their garage for CARS?) and it's unlocked, then someone can get into my garage.... and probably also the house.

Sure enough, the owner's manual says that the homelink is disabled if you lock the car from the outside.


So now it's not good enough to just hit the lock button on the door... I have to use the key (who has room on their keychain for all FOBs??)

This is a problem... for anyone that doesn't lock their car in the driveway.

Does anyone know any way to change the behavior of the Homelink so that it'll only work if the key is turned on???
