Hi,

This started a couple days ago. I hit the LOCK button on my key fob and the lights blinked twice instead of once. This usually means a door isn't quite closed. I opened all of them and closed them firmly and it locked. This evening when we got home, the same thing happened only no matter how hard we slammed everything shut, I still got the double blink. We ended up locking it with the interior door lock button on the driver door and then using the key to manually lock the driver door. I was worried that the lights might stay on since it was acting like a door was open, but they shut off like they were closed. We have had problems in the past with the back hatch not reading as completely closed, but a firm closing has always taken care of it. Nothing is obstructing any of the doors or the hatch that I can see. Any suggestions before I take it in to the dealer?

Thanks!

if you've had issues with the rear hatch in the past I'd say that's most likely the culprit. Probably going to have to take it to the dealer

How new is the vehicles battery?
Wife's car started to have issues locking the door, then issues escalated to other error messages. The factory battery was dying. Think I had to replace it last fall when the temps started to drop. Might be a simple fix, who knows.

It's the original battery, so about 4 years old. It drains a little quickly if the lights are on and the engine isn't running but I haven't had any problems starting it. Was her problem with the remote, the interior buttons, or both?
