what causes the battery ti die in my keyless entry remote to die every 2 or 3 weeks

Asked by Feb 17, 2012 at 03:26 PM about the 2002 Saturn L-Series 4 Dr L200 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


The two most likely reasons is that either one of the buttons is sticking on or is being held on when it's in your pocket, or there's a short somewhere inside the remote. Swap out the battery and keep it someplace where it won't be touched, and try it after it normally would be dead. If it's dead here, then it's something wrong with the remote- the short or a sticky button.
