Has anyone experienced the evic message saying key fob outside vehicle when someone opens a door to get out and driver and key are still in vehicle. Twice now I've dropped my daughter off somewhere and she's hopped out of the truck and this message has popped up. To clear it I've shut truck off and restarted. It's been the back passenger door both times. Crew cab.

Hi: GRIFF4... "Elvis has left the building". I get the message when I exit the truck and leave it running; which I do a lot when hooking up my trailer.

Lol. Do you restart the truck to clear message or just drive and it clears itself with no issues ?

Update went to pick daughter up. Got out of truck and hit fob lock button and nothing. Got back in truck to try and start it. Said no key fob detected. So locked it from inside and go in for 10 minutes. Come back out and fob worked to unlock and also start. Stopped and bought new fob battery and replaced it. Hoping that's what it was.

FWIW, on MY 19, I usually start with remote, get in, hit run and away we go. Have keys in pocket. If I get out with vehicle running, get the Ole Key Fob has left vehicle. Once I enter vehicle and put in gear, "Message Clears"..

T-Bird (I do not have passive entry, just keyless start)...

My 17 will give me the message key fob has left the vehicle if I am backing something into my steel machine shed. Fob is either in my pocket or in the change tray. Did it to the wife's Durango as well both have passive entry.
