The profile is held in memory on the key remote. Are you using multiple key/remotes in a day? "All you have to do is lock the car and whatever profile was selected when the car was locked will be recalled when the car is unlocked with that particular key. So, lock car with key 1. Then open with key 1 and lock with key 2 to copy the profile from key 1 to key 2. This sequence inadvertently corrupts most peoples profiles when they did not expect it. Or, more correctly, lock car with key 1 on the profile you want. Next, open the car with key 2 and then power on and select the profile you want for key 2. Then power off and lock car with key 2. There are other combos that may work too."
