One day tried to start the car wouldn't start. Thought the battery was dead but lights and everything came on normal. Kept turning the ignition key on and of for awhile and car eventually started. Noticed that sometimes the key remote to set alarm doesn't work. Folks have suggested that the computer needs to be reset what do you folks think.

    Your battery is weak. I'd be willing to bet that if you got it tested, it is not within spec, and that's why you're seeing this behavior.

    You car is so new, the battery really shouldn't be weak this soon, so there may be a draw on it. You may want to visit a shop for some help.
