I have a 2002 Daewoo Lanos SX which uses coded key. From time to time the car will stop detecting the key and I get into a situation where I'm unable to start the vehicle. The problem usually lasts between 1 and 5 minutes and after that the car recognizes the key. So far I'm unable to detect what happens when the key does get detected and I'm unable to reproduce the problem at will. I've tried replacing the keychain, turning various power consumers on and off (like AC, fans and so on), but as far as I can see, the do not have any effect on the key recognition.
They key itself is sealed, so I can't just replace the battery.
The local authorized repair shop keeps telling me that everything is working fine and that there are no problems with the system.
So where do I start solving this problem?
UPDATE The key itself looks like the AKK153 on this page.
