Background: Key replacement program occurred.
Occasionally , after key removed, key cylinder believes key still inserted.. Dealer wanted large amount to replace whole cylinder assembly. Remote Start will not work on days where it 'thinks' the key is still in ignition.. I'm ok with this.

Cold winter day.. Locked doors with remote, auto started it. 5 minutes later, unlocked with remote.. but did not put key in ignition. A couple of minutes later, car stopped running. I thought it was some safety feature. Climbed in, started and drove to work.

Now, neither of my key fobs work.. will not lock/unlock doors or trunk.

Suggestions on first course of action? I'm assuming I should look at all the fuses to see if any are burnt out?

Magically today, the fob is working again. Now I'm worried that the symptom (car stopping for no reason) is related to a worn key cylinder .. So I guess I'm back to the dealer for replacement as I don't want car to stop like that while driving down the highway.

That should be under warranty if you don't have a rebuilt registration.
