This is how the passive entry/passive start system works.

The emergency spot at the bottom of the console is for when the battery in the fob is dead. It is also described.

Atmel may or may not be the producer of the chip system used on the Bolt. FOBs and receivers are made by several different OEMs.

I have had the No Remote Detected error on my Bolt once in 2.4 years. It was when it was 3 months old. Haven’t changed batteries in the FOBs yet. Hasn’t happened since.

Failures to detect can be cause by RF or LF interference or even glitches in the receiver software. It’s a little more reliable than our infotainment software.

But if the wife puts her purse on the rear seat and then accidentally brushes the lock button on the door handle, it will lock her out of the car. Ask her how she knows that can happen.
Isn't there a setting that enables or disables the automatic lock-out protection?
