Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Usually this is due to a fault with the key itself as the remote on the key can fail causing this issue or the batteries in the key remote fail needing replaced.I would try having the batteries replaced ( a local parts store can usually swap them out for you at the cost of the batteries alone) then see if it works properly.If this does not work I suspect the key/remote has failed and a new one will need obtained and programmed by a shop or dealer.
