It sounds like the key may be defective or for some reason has lost programming. Reprogramming or replacing the key should be covered under your standard 3 year 36000 mile bumper to bumper warranty that this vehicle typically comes with. I wouldn't think they would ask you to pay anything for the repair and I would be confident in telling them you expect it to be covered under warranty before any work is done.

Good Morning,Since this is my only running vehicle right now do you know approximately how long it takes to fix something like this.
Thank you.

If it just needs a reprogram it shouldn't take more than an hour.If it needs a new battery in the key it might take about 1.5 hours to get a battery, change it, and then program it.

We had one of our vehicles at the dealer last week for the exact same concern (it was a ford explorer though) and it took them 1 hour to replace the bad key and reprogram it.

We could have done the exact same thing here in the shop in about an hour, but the keys are about $60 each and it was still under warranty so we wanted to save the $60. We are a local government fleet so we like to be good stewards of the tax payer dollar.
