I have seen earlier some postings on keys<br>
problems. so i was aware of it, now it<br>
happened to me (?). It applies to both keys.<br>
Basically they work intermittently. Some times<br>
i can unlock/lock car with one key, sometimes<br>
with another, sometimes both keys work perfectly,<br>
today it happened that none of my keys was able<br>
to lock/unlock car. I had to use mechanical key<br>
to get inside (and trip this annoying ATA device<br>
of course).<br>
Keys when inserted into electronic lock behave<br>
in strange way. Sometimes it is needed to <br>
reinsert the key second time to get it recognized<br>
by system (steering lock unlocks then). There is<br>
no specific pattern for these malfunctions, they<br>
are just random. Is that a common problem that<br>
needs replacement of keys? Or there is something<br>
more serious with my locking system?

Here is what you do.

This is a well known problem with the keys, I think there is even a service bulletin out on it now.<br> Here is what you do:<br> 1. Call you local dealer. Tell him your keys are not working right, and you want the upgraded keys.<br> Give him your VIN and tell him to order the keys.<br> 2. When the keys come in (around 5 days) all you do is go down to the dealer. They will initialize the keys in 5 minutes, and your problem will be solved.
