Lately, I have been experiencing an odd issue with my 2006 non-switchblade key. The car has not been responding to button presses. Eventually, if I move down the driver side of the vehicle, continuing to press any of the buttons, it will finally respond once I'm toward the back of the vehicle. I tried replacing the key battery with no better performance. Also, this is happening wherever I am -- not in any one specific location. Any ideas as to what's going on?

Thanks!

Well the strangest thing happened, guys:

Not mentioned in my original post, about the same time as the key issue, I was getting an error message on the dash telling me the TPMS had lost communication with the Right Rear tire. Having my tires replaced just a couple months ago, I remember them replacing two sensors. Today, I took it to the shop and they replaced the two original TPMS sensors. Walking back out to the car, I tried the unlock button, and it worked! I've used it a half dozen more times since then and it is working as normal. Is there any chance the TPMS issue could have been causing an interference with the key fob? Or is this just a coincidence?

Also worth noting:

About the same time I received the TPMS bulletin and the key issue, the steering wheel tilt motor (which has been stuck since I've owned the vehicle, except for the very rare occasion when it will raise up when I start the car) has begun working as normal. It raises when I get in or exit the car and goes to where I like it when I start. What gives? Strange electrical issues!
