If possible you need to determine if this is an issue caused by cold temps or not. If you have a garage that you can put a heater in overnight and hopefully keep temp above freezing that would be great. If the car starts then we know it's a cold only issue, if it doesn't start then we look at more ...

The original RKE works with both fobs but it's intermittant and a nuisance when it doesnt work,

replacing the RKE with another renders both fobs useless, so i cant program them myself :banghead:

I'll be happy just to have the issue resolved
