I'm having trouble starting my 2008 STS. I can unlock the car with my fob but when I get in to start it, it says no fobs found. I've replaced the batteries in both fobs and that didn't help. If i repeatedly hit the lock button while sitting in the car I can eventually get it started. Any suggestions?
Thank you for your question, I hope I can help. My name is XXXX XXX I will be assisting you with your concern.
i have seen this many times with these vehicles. what is happening is you have an internal failure in the remote control door lock reciever. they have an internal solder connection that cracks causing an inibility of the passive starting antenna to pick up the fob. usually you can put the fob in the pocket in your center console and the backup antenna will allow the car to start. when replacing the reciever it will have to be programmed at a
dealer to get it to work. i hope this helps out. let me know if you need anything else.
