and sometimes would not work AT ALL.
I tried all possible programming methods and NOTHING so far.
Please, if you have any idea or info let me know because I am really
frustrated here.
The only sure way the key works is when I use it manually to lock and unlock
the vehicle.
Perhaps the battery in the key is starting to fail. If you have a second key try using it and see if the problem recurs.
