Hello, keep in mind that key fobs use radio frequency technology to communicate with door lock modules. If there is any disruption in the frequency, such as interference with metal objects, things in your pocket, and so on, it may not allow for proper operation. Large magnetic fields can disrupt operation too, depending where the vehicle is parked. For a 2016 model, however, I'd recommend consulting your local dealer as it likely is still under factory warranty for your concern -- if a fault is actually present. Good luck.
