i thinkmy key fob battery is dying. my doors wont open unless i use the actual key.

Asked by Aug 12, 2014 at 08:37 PM about the 2011 Hyundai Genesis 4.6L

Question type: General

Sometimes it seems like the car doesn't recognize my key fob, After getting in the car using the actual key I'll try to start the car but it wont start. It will tell me to insert the key into the key fob slot. A friend told me that I should put the key fob in the slot whenever im in the car. Is this true. My wife tends to think that they key fob slot is draining the battery in the key fob

The slot does not drain the FOB. But the battery on the FOB does get weak and the vehicle has a difficult time recognizing the key RF signal. Replace the battery in the FOB and you should be fine.
