Remote keyless entry fails in cold weather
I've got a 2001 Taurus SES 3.0L and the keyless entry fob has begun giving me trouble.
On cold mornings (say around 20F) the fob will only work inches from the car, if its even colder (like 0F) the fob doesnt work at all outside the car. Once I unlock with the key and get inside, it works again, albeit somewhat unresponsivly where I have to hold the buttons for a while. After I drive to work, when the car has warmed up, the keyless works from very far away again, and same for warm days.
The keyfob is, of course, in the house with me, so I doubt theres any issues with that. There must be a radio in the car thats started to go bad. Anyone have ideas of where to start? Thanks
