Default Fob battery

Nice of the car to warn me that the fob battery was low (about 28
months old). I drove directly to the dealer expecting to be gouged
(yes the alternative was open the manual or having read it already)
but guess what it uses a generic Maxell lithium battery and even the
dealer (parts window) only charged me four dollars, installed.

Mine lasted 23 months. Trying to remember to keep it away from router
and wireless signals which apparently can shorten its life.

Well, I'm already in a running car at that point with a light that
might be promising imminent failure or stranding, so I guess I could
start browsing youtube at that moment for access to the Group Mind,
and I guess many people today would do just that, because of course
youtube is never wrong.

Er, ... yeah?

My apartment is subject to about twenty wifi signals at any given
moment, more like fifty if you count weak ones.

Any documentation on that? Should I construct a Faraday box to keep
it in, or is someone already selling that?

Well, I was commenting on your stated indifference toward reading the
owner's manual--because apparently that's too hard.

Or maybe doing so would invalidate your manhood card or something.

replacement apparently has lasted about 2 month since the light is
flashing again. then again, I paid 15&cent for it. i guess you get
what you pay for.

The other cause for early failure is stuck button, my dealer guy said
that the buttons getting pressed in your pocket is often blamed.

Well, I briefly considered it, but I was pretty sure that yeah it
would invalidate my card, and also that reading the manual alone
wasn't going to actually charge the battery, and by the time I found a
shop that had the right sized cell, even if that's all it was, it
might be too late, and my dealer is not that far away, and it was
mid-afternoon so I gave it a big wtf.
