Key Fob Recognition Info

Having an issue with just ONE of our two key fobs. (FYI, the "problem" fob has a brand new battery).

On occasion (intermittently), the problem fob will open the door, adjust the seat, etc., to all the pre-programmed settings and then not start the car with the push button, and get the notification "Key Not Recognized".

Any idea why this would be happening while the other fob operates perfectly??

Re: Key Fob Recognition Info

Be sure to read the referenced link but I had the same problem at 1100 miles and put in a new battery and did not help either. Then someone mentioned removing and reseating the battery so I tried that and no more problems and now at almost 5000 miles. Don't understand it since replacing the original battery removed and reseated also but it worked. Guess if it happens again I will have the fob replaced - just hate to get started with the dealer.
