Hi. I know this is a really post, but I'm having a similar issue. My one key fob was behaving badly a few weeks ago and I bought batteries. When I got back to the car, the remote was working, so I left it. Then today, it did the same thing so I put new batteries in it. It is still doing the same intermittent thing. I tried re-sync as above, but that didn't help. It's completely random when it decides to work. Any other ideas?

Hi!

My idea is to move your post to its own thread out of this 6 year old thread for maximum exposure

Let us know :D
