Hi,my name is mike and I will assist you with your question.
The two main reasons this type of issue happens and with these symptoms is a failing key fob battery or a failing vehicle battery. The key fob battery is more common. After replacing the key fob battery if the issue still happens have the vehicle battery tested,however the key fob battery replacement will cure this problem.
