THE PROLIFERATION OF automotive technology features (push button ignitions,
keyless entry, smart transmissions, active safety systems and anti-theft features) is presenting new challenges for car wash professionals.
The issue is made more complicated when you consider that individual models pose

We've been compiling manuals and resources to help provide guidance on various
models at carwash.org/VehicleHandling.
PROBLEMS SEEM TO FALL UNDER ONE OF
FOUR BROAD CATEGORIES:
Cars automatically locking when the key fob leaves the vehicle.
Cars locking up when the exterior keypad is hit.
Cars shifting into park when they're shut off or a door is opened
Pre-collision systems engaging the brakes.
