Flaky Key FOB
One of my 2017 Bolt FOBs is intermittent. Twice now it has somewhat died for a short time and then been fine. The battery is ok. Last week I went to get in the car using the door button. That worked, but the car alarm then went off. I used the FOB to silence it. Then I had to put the FOB in its pocket to start the car just that one time. Since then it's been fine, again.
I went for my last free dealer visit yesterday for tire rotation and checkup, since the car will be 2 in a week. After declining the oil change ($90), I asked them about the FOB problem. They checked for OBD fault codes (car body, not engine codes) and found none. They said a FOB failure normally throws a code.
Any ideas? Is the FOB warranty 1-year or something else? Thanks!
