So, the car has been doing fine for some time now, I even took it on a 750 mile round trip journey without any difficulty. However, last weekend I went out to start the car on Saturday morning after it had sat outside all night and the same thing happened. No starter engaging, no engine turning over, all lights on. This time, though, I had my spare (valet) key with me. Thinking that perhaps the problem was with the EWS system (which includes the key) I tried this spare key. Guess what? The car fired up just fine! At this point, I am guessing that the transmitter in the regular key I am using is starting to wear out and die. I will likely order a new key and see if that permanently takes care of this perplexing little problem.
