A key with a smoked battery or faulty battery could work intermittently. You can try to reprogram it to see if it consistently works. Keep in mind when you went indoors, everything warmed up. So naturally the problem may go away. once you hit cold again, as happened, situation got aggravated. To order a "new key" takes 10 business days. because it comes from Germany. special order item. why i suggested heat, was because ice may have formed inside the lock cylinder which typically happens regardless of whether the key goes in or not. If you don't have heated locks and sometimes with - this "might" be a problem. A new lock cylinder might be cheaper if you can do it yourself. get your buddy to price it at his cost and have him do it for a case of brew.
