About 6 or 7 months ago I posted here regarding a fob issue with my 2015 Jeep Cherokee. I parked in a shopping center to pick up some things and the button on the driver’s door would not lock the car or set the alarm, nor would the fob. I tried many times without success. It also wouldn’t start the car. I finally was able to start the car by pressing in the start button with the fob. I drove a few miles and everything then worked. I was wondering if the car was getting some kind of radio interference. The dealer said that was possible, but unlikely. The general consensus was the fob battery was dead (my other fob also wouldn’t work). I replaced the batteries in both fobs and all has been well since, until today.
Interestingly enough, today I parked in the same shopping center in the same parking spot. The button on the driver’s door would not lock the car or set the alarm, same as last time. However, when I left I was able to start the car, and it worked fine after successive small trips. I noted previously, again this time, there is a cell tower about 200 yards from where I parked. I can only surmise this particular parking spot occupies some kind of Bermuda Triangle of radio signals.
