Wondering if I have a problem. I have a 2012 SRX with only one key fob(bought it used and was only provided 1). Almost every other time I get out of my car, it honks 3 times when I shut the door. I know that's the reminder that I've left the fob in the car...but the fob is in my pocket, not in the car. Its at the point where I try to be as far away as possible before shutting the door....imagine how odd that looks, stepping 2 metres away then using your fingertips to swing the door closed. Forget about doing this in parking lots where you only have 1-2 feet between cars. Because the car thinks the fob is inside, it won't remote start. The second fob is not in the car, I've tested that theory by trying to start the car while my fob is in the house. It displays "no remote detected".The dealer says the sensors are functioning properly. Does anyone else have a similar issue? Or should I go back to dealer and insist on checking the sensors again.
Just tried that. Once it wouldn't start when the fob was about 1 foot away- it said "no remote detected". Then it started when the fob was 3 feet away but it said "no remote detected" & "press brake to start". Then it wouldn't start when the fob was 4 feet away. No consistency.
