As I approach my 2-year purchase anniversary, I guess my car decided to celebrate by presenting another annoyance.
Yesterday I parked at my neighbors' house and shut the car off. It dinged and said "Shift To Park" so I restarted it, observed that the shift indicator was indeed showing "P" (on both the shifter and dashboard), and shut it off again. It was fine for several starts/shutdowns after that.
Then today, I pulled in my garage and it happened again. Right as I was about to restart it, it also said "remote not detected, press brake to restart". So I did. Once again, I observed that "P" was shown in both places, shut it down again, and it was fine. I got out of the car and used the outside button on the door handle to lock/unlock the car, so I know the remote proximity is working fine.
I'm not sure if I really need to be worried, as it could have just been that I didn't wait long enough between shifting to park and shutting down, but this is the first I've ever had this happen and I haven't really changed anything about how I drive it.
