    Keyless Entry remotes and key fobs (useful range / testing the battery)

    My fast key sometimes is not recognized if in my left pocket when I get into my Mirage so I figured the battery may be at fault.

    Found this testing procedure and did it myself.

    "Instructions
    1
    Turn the multimeter on, and set it to "DC Voltage" mode.

    2
    Touch the "red probe" on the side of the battery with a "+" sign and the "black probe" to the other side.

    3
    Read the voltage displayed on the multimeter



    Tips & Warnings

    The CR2032 is a 3-volt battery. If the measured voltage reads less than 10 percent of the rated voltage, then the battery needs to be replaced. For the CR2032, that voltage would be anything less than 2.7 volts."
    -quoted from http://www.ehow.com/how_7287405_test...2-battery.html



    They come with a Pannasonic lithium 2032 and mine was at 3.01V still good to go!

    Here is some battery removal videos fast key and standard key fob

    Did your testing show that your battery was low?

    Well 3.01v is said to be ok but I do believe new 2032 batteries are at about 3.2 volts. I might try a new battery if I keep having this issue with my left coat pocket. The range seems to be great from in my apartment living room I can get a door lock horn chirp, just a bit fussy with the fast key in my left pocket vs the right?
