Time to contact the dealer, your car is under warranty, but maybe replace the battery in the fob first?

Did you find out what was causing the problem? I have a 2017 Civic hatchback and mine just started doing the same thing.


Same car same problem

I never did find out what the problem is. It doesn't happen right away so when I took it to the dealer, they stood there locking it and then immediately unlocking it and of course it works... I'm not really sure what to do now but I'm really sick of it

if you have your second key inside the vehicle it wont lock or remote start

do not have things like your cell phone in front of your keys. that will distract the sensors


My problem seems to be with the car, rather than the key. I have held the key in my hand, away from electronics, phones, and my other key and the keyless entry will not work. It seems like the car side receiver goes to "sleep" after a while. The keyless entry works perfectly if the car has just been locked or unlocked. If I stand next to the car, press lock or unlock on the key, the car sensor wakes up and the keyless entry works perfectly. But if I stand there for 5 minutes then try it again, the car goes to sleep and the keyless entry no longer works. Still trying to find a solution. TMade an appointment and took it to the dealer, but all their diagnostic computers were broken so the techs just looked at it and couldnt figure it out.
