I managed to lock myself out of the car the other day. As I approached the car, I heard it beep - all the doors locked and did not respond to the Smartkey - AT ALL! Called the dealer, no idea! Upon further research, I found on page 76 in the Owner's Manual.

! Keep the SmartKey away from strong magnetic fields. Otherwise, the remote control function could be affected. Strong magnetic fields can occur in the vicinity of powerful electrical installations.

There was a small utility substation next to the business I was visiting - eventually, the doors opened, but there was a moment of panic when I could not get into the car!

Curious why you couldn't use the valet key that's embedded in the key fob, if yours is designed that way. Was that not an option?

I could have used the valet key, but after several attempts, the Smartkey eventually worked. My concern at the time was the failure of the Smartkey - and sharing the information in case anyone else ran into the same issue.
