    Hi Guys, The 'Key not accepted contact service' is regularly shown now when I try to start the car. A few locking and unlocking presses of the key fob tends to do the trick, but I am concerned that I am beginning to become a little bit too blasé about this issue. Maybe it is only a matter of...
