Keyless access to the remote control is great, but they don't always work the way you want them.
One of the most common complaints is that they are not far enough and there is nothing more annoying than this when you don't remember where to park.
After all, if you have to be next to the car to work, what's the point of having a "remote" entrance?
Surprisingly, the key to solving this problem is actually in your mind.
If you touch the remote control to the head while pressing the button, you can unlock your car from further afield.
To get a better result, put it under your chin and open your mouth.
