the key fob on my cmax se only works to lock or unlock the doors just after i get out of the car when its been in the ignition.  if i go in the house for any length of time (maybe under 5 minutes) it wont unlock the doors. Never seen anything like it on a new car.  Just bought it yesterday (1-27-13). 

wondering if anyone else has had this problem.

 

also the dome lights only come on when the door is opened when you are in the car and the key is in the ignition.  strange too.

 

i have read the manual on both of these problems with no luck.

Since you just got it, I'd take it back to the dealer for service ASAP.  It shouldn't work that way!

My SE that I got yesterday as well doesn't work like that.  Make the dealer fix it.

There is supposed to be a checklist they follow after delivery of the vehicle, makes me wonder what else they forgot.

You may needs to reset keyless programming.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I'm not finding much useful on that website. Looks abandoned...

As you can see by the OP's second post, the problem wan't a key FOB related issue ;)

Nothing in that site will work for the C-Max and yes it looks abandoned to me too :lol:
