Last night i had a little glitch with my keyless ignition...

I dropped a friend off at her house, and when she got out the car bleeped and flashed "Key Not Detected"

The car was still running, and once she had gone i drove off, to be acompanied by lots of beeping and the same warning message...

After a few seconds i decided to risk turning the car off and on again... this worked, but then the beeping returned, for about a minute, then it stopped... ive had no problems since...

Only thing i can think of, is that i had the keys in my back pocket all day yesterday, so wondering if ive drained the battery by sitting on the various buttons...

Anyone else got any thoughts?

It could be that the actual keys were boarding on the edge of being too far away from the sensor , i can hang my key just outside drivers window and it says the same.
If i place my key on the back seat the car will report the same
