My Key Fob Keyless remote for the past 2 months has worked off & on. I would have to push the botton several times to unlock & lock the doors. Now the keyless remote botton for the trunk continues to work, no problem. Is this the internal battery (keyless trunk remote botton still works - can't be battery). Can both the unlock & lock bottons have finally gone south. Or there another issue. The key fob is charged in the car ignition, correct! Also when I just use the key in the Fob to unlock the door, the Alarm is not disarmed & centralized locking system does not work.

Does your car have comfort access?

Not for sure! What is comfort access? Is this feature not a standard option?

If you can (or could) start your car with the fob in your pocket, you have Comfort Access and no the batttery does not recharge through the ignition, it is a replaceable battery. Non-CA cars recharge the non-replaceable battery through the ignition.
