I'm really dumb

My wife and I went for a ride and we came home so I go into the house to get the garage door key.
I went back out to start the car and nothing I pressed and pressed and sweat beads started to form on my head.
I went back into the house and told my wife the car was dead and wouldn't start.
She said could it be that you put the car keys on the kitchen table.
I felt foolish and a little relieved at the same time that the problem has been solved.

Hey, don't feel bad. A few weeks ago I tried without success to start my CX3 and spent nearly a half hour on the phone to my dealer trying to figure out what the problem was.

It seems that the CX3 is one of a class of cars that are built with the need to depress the brake pedal and keep it depressed while you press the start button. Well, I knew that! (at least I knew that the previous day) But when you are in the middle of a gigantic brain fart in a very old brain it is a sad fact that no matter what you try to do, nothing is going to work the way you think it should work! Bring back my ancient column mounted three speed mechanical shifter! For that matter bring back my old crank-start Austin.

He who works with his hands is a Labourer. He who works with his hands and his head is a Craftsman. He who works with his hands, his head and his heart is an Artist. -St. Francis of Assisi

Ahhh the infamous keyless start (or lack thereof) system. Glad to hear it was human error and nothing mechanical. As far as feeling foolish, don't sweat it. I've done the same thing. New things often come with learning curves.

Please go away from this forum and bang your head on the wall few times. Maybe if you loose few more brain cells you wont be able to put more stupid comments...

I started this thread to point out what a dumb thing I did.There is no reason to be snarky on something dumb and funny at the same time.
So,everyone please have a nice day.

Once rented a maroon Ford. Went back to it later to retrieve something from inside. Spent about 10 minutes with a key that was so obviously not going to fit. Not only was it not my rental car but it wasn't even the same model.

Currently CX5 SportNav 2.2 diesel automatic and AWD.
Formerly CX3 SportNav 1.5 diesel automatic and AWD.
