It died and then came alive!

I went to the car to start it in the recommended way. Got into the driver's crumpled seat. It would not start, the gear stick would not move, all the lights and radio functioned (so no flat battery). I locked the car and went back 4 times. Same thing.

Then, I went into the passenger side front seat by pressing the unlock button twice, sat in this seat for 10 seconds, got out of the front passenger seat, locked the car, then unlocked and got into the driver's seat, tried to start the car and then vola!, it fired. It's fine now.

Any one else had this happen? How strange is that?

Maybe all the faffing around this morning with the dud fob drove it (and me) potty in the process.
