Hi,

It started acting up weeks ago with CA not always working so well. I thought it was the battery in the transmitter. I charged both up in the steering column and no improvement. Then a few weeks ago both CA and keyless entry (buttons) stopped working completely. Now I have to use the metal key and the interior buttons to do anything. It also does not autolock the doors any more as I drive away.

Is my car battery too drained? I only drive ~6,000 mi/y and only about ~300 mi, every 2-3 weeks. I have no place to set up a trickle charger (condominium garage). A couple of months ago I noticed several times "Battery Discharge" and the clock would reset. Recently I noticed that the M button programming has changed from what I had.

Thanks,

J
