On Saturday, I took my dog to the groomers. I stopped at a gas station on the way home. Filled the tank, went to start the car. No key fob found, placed the key on the fob holder beneath the cup holder, would not stop. Call lincoln assistance. They sent a tow truck with a bed, but refused to toy it because it was 2014. Called the dealer, they came out, took me home for my other fob - no go. They brought me to the dealership, gave me a MKZ non-hybrid as a loaner, had my car towed. They had no problem starting the car in the lot. At the gas station, they could not start it. They tried several times, no problem starting the car. They put the snow tires and damaged the bumper. It is still in the body shop. No problem, they will get it fixed, but I still have the loaner. Stopped at the gas station with the loaner, turned off the car and received a warning - no key, restart now or key is needed. So I restarted.
Long story, just to say at the same gas station, neither my car nor my loaner could find the fob. Ford thinks it is a wireless interference issue. So my question is what to do. The owner was very nice even though I was blocking one of his lanes. He has a MKS without issues. Obviously, I could use another gas station, but there is a chance that other MKZ get stuck at the station. Obviously my phone could be contributing, but I have had no problem at other stations. Suggestions?
