So in total, it was 4 repeated attempts.
Unfortunate. I want to say I recall someone else having that same problem before, but can't remember if there was some fix they needed to get or what. You could try a search.

Just to make sure - you have actually had your 1200mi service performed, right? I know you said you have 3k miles, so I sure hope you've gotten the initial service done. Come to think of it, I'm almost positive that there is something they actually have to set ECU (or wherever) to enable LC during the service appointment. It doesn't just automatically become active I don't think. So maybe that is the problem, i.e maybe they forgot to do that part somehow.
