Problem with intelligent key
Who has had issues with their key and what was the problem?
I suspect that there is something messed up with the whole system in my car, not just the fob. Sometimes the fob doesn't work and I usually have to put it in the slot, and even with a brand new battery that I tested the voltage of, the car tells me the fob has a low battery. Sometimes the unlock buttons don't work. The thing is that I don't want to spend over $100 for a new key, just to find out it's something wrong with the cars system not the fob.
When I tried to explain this to the dealership they tested my fob on some machine and said my key was outputting the normal strength, but since the fob looked pretty beat up it was probably that, and didn't bother checking anything out on the car. That was before my warranty ran out, and now that it has I'm going to be pissed if I find out it is/was the car the whole time.
So I guess what i'm asking is has anyone had any issues with the intelligent keys' system regarding the parts in the car. And how likely is it that my key would work at varying strengths on it's own terms. And am I wrong for thinking they should've done more to help diagnose it than look at my busted up fob and say that's the cause.
