Smart Key Problems after Driver Door Repairs - 2015 GT
So, my wife and I recently swapped cars so she could have the SUV for lugging the baby and associated gear around. I found out that the red key icon has been illuminated on the dash since she was in an accident and the driver door skin was replaced TWO YEARS AGO.
Clearly it's too late to go back to the body shop and ask them to fix the issue they caused (car was drivable after the accident and did not have the problem before the repair).
The button on the door handle does not work and the car does not automatically lock when walking away from the car with the key.
Any idea what I should be looking for to be out of place in the drivers' side door???
