Access key not detected.

17848 7
Half the time that one of my front doors open with the car running, the car thinks that the key fob is leaving the car and I get an "access key not detected". The key fob is still sitting in storage area below the HVAC. It eventually goes away. Anybody else ever get that?

Based upon what I know, that's correct on the battery.

Also, keep in mind that if the door is open, the actual receiver / sensor on the car is located IN the door. So you've put the access key in a spot sitting still and then move the sensor away from it. It's the same thing as moving the key away.

I notice that if the fob is too close to my phone it will cause this type of malfunction. I'm not sure exactly what the interference is, but something my phone is emitting blocks the fob signal.

I've experienced the exact same issue. Instead of keeping the keys in the cubby below the AC controls, keep it in the door pocket. I do not get the message when the key stays in the door pocket.
