    Key fobs intermittently inoperative after vehicle sits idle for longer than an hour or so.
    Takes approx 30 presses of the unlock button to "wake" the vehicle up.
    If remote key entry is non-functioning and entry is done via manual door unlock, there is a
    no crank, no click issue with DIC displaying "Stabilitrak off" , no shift indicator light, no dash lights, door locks inoperative, power windows inoperative, and no radio. Leaving key in the ON position for approximately 1 minute, the vehicle magically "wakes up" and all functions afforementioned resume to normal operation.

    Driver display won't go to ACTIVE position for learning new key fob. Old ones won't work either with new batteries.
