Thanks, but it's a brand new phone, and I don't think it's trivial to remove the battery. I don't think there's anything wrong with the phone, it paired to my computer fine.

New one? Key fob unlocks but doesn't lock.

Here's the sequence of events.

I have two keys, one I use all the time (1), the other (2) almost never.

The other night, very cold out, (1) wouldn't lock. I locked manually.

Later it worked...

Thanks, but your reply is confusing to me; seems internally inconsistent. If the blower doesn't work, and it didn't chirp before quitting, it would likely not be the blower, no?

Anyway, I found:
