    no head light change, i did notice today if my remote is in my pocket opposite the door, the button on the handle wont work, but if i turn so the remote is right next to the car then the door handle button works and unlocks the car. maybe the sensor that recognizes the fob is going bad??

    Do you have a smartphone? There could be some interference possible with them. If you do, leave the phone in the house and go open your vehicle to see if it matters and do it numerous times to see if it makes any difference.
