    Starting and Squealing

    Two issues:

    When the car was purchased in August of 2017 I had one occasion where it turned over twice but did not start. Third time off I went! The dealership found nothing. Same thing just happened a few days ago. The main battery was just replaced (indicated failure with an error code), so I doubt that is the culprit. Anyone else have a similar experience?

    My driver's door has developed a metallic shriek when closing. Not every time but often enough to be really irritating. I lubricated the latch mechanism with some grease but that made no difference and seems to me should not be necessary. It seems to be coming from the latch but it is hard to tell.

    Sigh...

    Replace your remote battery. The exact thing happened to me, thought it was the car battery but it turned out to be a the remote battery.
