you could have made 1 topic about both your problems .
& you might also want to use the search feature , I do
recall several topics on both subjects ...

the key problem could be broken connection on the button inside the key fob

As PAPER said it could be a bad key fob. Could also be a bad batt. Does car start easily every time? Could also be one of many possibly bad switches (door closed, hood closed, trunk closed). Search, troubleshoot, isolate, and repair.

Thank you and sorry for the double post. I have a brand new car battery and the key fob is charged through the vehicle when it is inserted. I haven't looked into whether or not there is a bad switch some place else.

try checking under your hood & see if the hood switch is
been closed when you close the hood . I recall reading
a while back someone's alarm going off cause of the hood switch .
