I don't know about the unlocking, but I was able to see the double flash after the key fob was pressed.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I am courious if an sensor is loose or the double flash is an indicator of a deeper problem ... ie. low voltage (operating voltage) in the system
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Front impact put a hole in the lower front bumper cover only

ok, that should not be related as far as impact,?

but i believe this tsb bulletin is related ,CLICK ON LINK TO VIEW TECNICAL SERVICE BULLTEIN ON THIS ISSUE

You need to have the FCM module re flashed, usually around $100 at dealer ,

if that is not the issue i would have the dealer scan it for any faults in any module in the car when you take it in

I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
