    So...once you enable this, you can no longer lock your car? Anyone can open it?

    Nope. Still need the key fob or app to open the vehicle, it just won’t shift to drive until you use the pin.

    The idea is that if someone steals or hacks a fob, phone or key card they won't be able to steal the car?

    Sure seems like a nuisance but better than having the car stolen if living in or visiting a high crime area.
