Default Convenience touch key dont work anymore

I was away for 3 days, now suddenly it doesnt work anymore when i touch the handle. I read the manual, it says system deactivated the convenience feature to save battery. Just wonder how long until it back to normal operation. Thanks!

Run all windows full down then full up w/ switches. That should reset it.

Default Now I realize you mean the lock function...

One touch window up-down function was what I described.

Try simply driving and getting battery charged up again. It should return with an adequate charge; this is one of the early things the power management system shuts down if it senses a declining battery charge.

bigger picture though, if you left nothing on, a battery should easily hold almost all of its charge for three days. If not, either suspect a failing battery or some other current drain.

Make sure the second key isn't in the car. See if the other one works better. See if the car will start based on key proximity, or if it's just the central locking. Drive it around the block. Check again.

Another key doesnt work. Remote unlock/locking work as well as keyless start. I guess one of sensor went haywire like mentioned in Audizine.

Your cell phone should NOT be in the same pocket with the key, or you will get inconsistent results.

Also, I made a mistake once after being away from the car for a while... Remember that you cannot rest your thumb on the square "pad" while OPENING the car. That will prevent the door from unlocking. Don't touch the pad while opening.
