well the latch is not what fixes this issue. Do you have a second key fob? i would try that out. ANd as for possibly fixxing it dissconnect your battery for about 15-30 minutes then plug it back on. BUT ONLY do this if you have your stereos lock code cause the stereo will go into lock mode if its stock.
