If the fob is detected inside the car it could prevent the car from being locked and might allow it to be started. Depends on vehicle settings. Avoid any problem by removing the battery from the key fob.Looks like I will be bringing home a 16.
Will having the second key somewhere in my luggage prevent the locks from working?

I don't bring a second key. There is of course some chance that you will lose your key, or damage it i suppose, but in the more likely event that you lock they keys in the hatch or wherever, you can use the OnStar app on your phone to command the doors unlocked.Remove the battery or isolate RF. Aluminum foil may work as a tiny faraday cage.
You can turn off the triple honk for the situation of leaving a keyfob in the car. However, if you leave it running, it will triple honk regardless of where the keyfob location when you exit the car and close the door.+1, happens when my wife has her fob in her purse and I park and get out, that triple honk can take you by surprise and is LOUD.
When I take a long trip, this is what I do.I don't get it. Why not just take both keys in your pocket and avoid this mess.
