The wife took the car tonight and it unlocked for her by touch.

What is the point of plugging the Fob in if not to charge it.. (What I was told by the dealer)
If you have comfort access, the battery inside the keyfob is NOT RECHARGEABLE. It is like an alarm remote, you have to open up the remote and replace the watch battery inside. The regular keyfobs look almost identical and are charged through the key slot in the dash. Those are only for cars without comfort access, and have a rechargeable battery cell inside it. Try replacing the battery in your key fob first and see if the problem goes away.
