I've done this for years, and it has always worked (extended range or 
allowed entry when remote was seemingly not working, but light on remote 
was blinking.  No blinking light on remote, no work, no matter 
what.)  Supposedly it allows your body to act as the antenna.  In my truck, 
it would frequently extend the range by 50 feet.
