My 05 also had a problem with the keyless entry not working in Boston - too much interference. This is a common problem on early 05 models (since you are in Chicago, problem have the same issue) - there is a service bulletin to fix the issue - which was done for me under warranty
Cool. I need that fix. Keyless wouldn't work for me in Portland, OR, near some radio towers.
