    Random 'Key not inside car' while driving... about 1-2 a month for last few months, always goes away after a bit.
    Yesterday, and today, it's on all the time...
    New battery in Fob, tried other Fob, same deal.
    Emailed service center :(

    There goes my 6 month streak of not having to call the service center...

    What else is in your pocket? I've found that having my i3 fob in my pocket will cause the Tesla to not present the door handles.

    May not be your problem, but something to consider.

    Other than the standard 'equipment'... nothing. The key's often laying in the center console as well. Same issue. Nothing but the Tesla fob and a house key and chap stick on the key chain...

    Keep key fob away from your cell phone. If I have mine in same pocket, I have this issue.

    That's interesting... I never thought of cell phone. It goes in for service on the 1st. Hopefully I'll get an AP loaner for the long weekend... and hopefully they fix/replace something. It's a total of 8 hours of driving for me to visit a ServCent.
