Keyless Entry N Go problem

I have no problem entering.. just walk up and open the door. It unlocks itself. However when I get out, about 50 percent of the time the button will not lock the door. Not even with repeated pushes. I have to reach for the keyfob and lock it that way.

Has anyone had that problem themselves and found a solution? (Or maybe I don't understand how it works! )

The only thing that can be touching is the tip of your finger to the lock button, the rest of your hand can't be touching the door handle at all, otherwise it thinks you're unlocking it.

Yup. Don't grab the handle and push the button with your thumb. Only touch the button. If that does not solve the issue a trip to the dealer may be in order.
