More keyless ignitions means more worry over carbon monoxide

The prevalence of keyless ignitions is growing, and so too are concerns about carbon monoxide.

Drivers who forget to turn them off in an enclosed garage could be killed by the buildup of the colorless, odorless gas.

Congress is now trying to force the government agency in charge of vehicle safety to act.

Keyless ignitions are now standard on millions of cars. In many cases, the engines run so quietly that drivers forget its running once it’s pulled into a garage.

Lindsey Wilcox had a close call when one of her kids discovered she’d left her keyless van running in the garage.

“In 25 years of driving with keys, it’s a habit you have,’’ Wilcox said. “You take that away and it’s easy to make that mistake.”
