Hey - I just figured that out [bang head on wall!]. Forgot about key in fob. Got into the car. Now can fix. Thanks for your help.

I hate when that happens!


i have been there too it is the simple things that we forget


Next time purchase an AGM battery or even better get a spiral cell battery....they last much longer than ordinary batteries.... Overall, four years is the optimal time for most batteries.. beyond that you're on borrowed time.. make sure you have your AAA card handy.
