    Question Very Short Keyless Entry Range

    I've got an '08 Sedan and gave somebody a jump start yesterday and now I have to get the key fob within a ft. of the car in order for it work. Both key fobs work the same, and the car is about a month old, so the batteries "should" be good in each remote. All other electronics work perfectly.

    Any thoughts? Think just getting the remotes re-programmed to the car would help?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    If the problem is present using both key fobs, I would think the issue is with the car, not the fob.

    She's under warranty, take her back to the dealer.

    Did you get your windows tinted.? Sometimes some of that foil is metallic and can interfere with the signal.

    Yah, I did get my windows tinted. I would have thought I would have seen a problem arise sooner as that was done over 3 weeks ago, but still a possibility I suppose.
