I do have a 5 year warranty.

I will check it later tonight.
Meadbh, I hope that getting this electronics problem fixed is warranty work! Whether it is or not, I'd suggest taking it to the dealer and getting it fixed so that you can be happy with your (fairly new) car once again.

Maybe it is something simple like the software issue that Options suggested in his post above. In any case, if they fix it for free as warranty work that would be great.

Well, here's the follow up. The problem remained, so I made an appointment to have it remedied this morning. When I arrived at the dealership I put my spare key in the ignition. Guess what? Starting the engine with the spare key returned everything to normal!

I guess it was a software reboot. It's spooky. Next time, this is the first thing I will try. Perhaps this will work for others too.

Glad to hear it. So many of the problems cars have today are resolved with either a new battery or a ctrl-ALT-del.
