Opened the trunk with the key, trunk opened normally, pulled the driver's door release, got one honk of the horn, put the fob in the slot, car started normally.
Sue got home from her trip, and her fob worked normally, so the "car side" wes obviously OK.
Dealer has a fob transmitter tester, and my #1 fob had a dead transmitter (good battery). $130 for a new fob, dealer sold it to me for $70, and they programmed it for free. Got to love a good dealer/customer relationship!
The two spare fobs that I bought off of eBay last year (that were sold as operable), both had bad transmitters as well.
For $70, I'll stick with the dealer...
