Not an answer but what I've heard is that the fob batt is lithium & recharges as you drive. Having only one key before I open mine, anyone know the batt# and availability? Seems to be getting weaker as have to get closer & closer to open doors. Thanks in advance

Some remotes have a replaceable battery, the convience model. The standard fob recharges in the car as you drive.

Also you may need a new car battery

Anyone know the battery # And is it available non dealer? Before I take it apart would like some insurance... Thanks all
