Another oddity. Wash car with key fob in.pocket. lights go on.and off.. thought it was odd but what it's doing is.unlocking and locking vehicle.. took me six months to realize that oddity...
Anyone have same issues or care to try next hand wash?
Another day, another crazy issue....
The lights flashing while washing is common many cars with key less entry and go systems. The water running over the handle is like someone grabbing the handle in theory. Mine does it, mentioned here in other threads and common question in the BMW world as well.
With regards to the other issue, was the key fob anywhere near your cell phone? Same pocket, same hand? Phones tend to interfere with the remote when they are very close to one another. This is generally eliminated by keeping the phone in a separate pocket or separate hand. Had the issue with my Acura, drove me up a wall until I realized what was going on, several others on here have reported the same issue and when they kept the phone separate everything worked as expected. Hopefully its the same for you.
