Clown nose sometimes it blinks and

My clown nose sometimes blinks after parking and locking it and sometimes it doesn't. What's up with that?

It may take a predetermined time before the clown nose actually "arms". Mine always blinks, just not immediately.

Nope

Same key, used remote and used it in the lock this last time and it didn't come on. However, it had been parked for a week and I only started it to move it if that matters.

Should be no more than a minute or two before to start blinking.
Or maybe "you'r not driving it enough"
