It looks like you need to leave 1 fob / intellikey in the car when locking it while running then carry the second fob / intellikey with you so it can be unlocked without using the real key or triggering a warning.From the manual: Doors will not lock with the request switchwhen the Intelligent Key is left inside thevehicle. However, when an Intelligent Key isinside the vehicle, doors can be locked withanother registered Intelligent Key.Not sure if you would have to use the intellikey button to unlock it. I would think not, but not sure and it's too darn cold here right now to try just using the door buttons while carrying the other intellikey.

I drove for a bit, but then pulled over not wanting to be stranded somewhere if my key didn't work. Sure enough, it didn't start again. I had to get out of the car, get back in after a few mins and try again, when it finally worked.
Not sure if you locked the doors and / or turned it off for the snow removal, but I have got out with the intellikey in my pocket left it running, didn't lock the doors, went several feet from the car and got back in with no problem.I'm sure you looked over the manual too, so I hope this helps.TC
