Low Keyless Remote Signal Strength

The vehicle transmits radio waves to locate the keyless remote to start the engine, 
lock and unlock

*

 all the doors and the fuel fill door, and open

*

 the trunk.

In the following cases, starting the engine or locking/unlocking

 the doors/fuel fill 

door, or opening

*

 the trunk may be inhibited or operation may be unstable:

Strong radio waves are being transmitted by nearby equipment.

You are carrying the keyless remote together with telecommunications 
equipment, laptop computers, cell phones, or wireless devices.

A metallic object is touching or covering the keyless remote.

Low Keyless Remote Signal Strength

Communication between the keyless remote and the 
vehicle consumes the keyless remote's battery.
Battery life is about two years, but this varies 
depending on regularity of use.
The battery is consumed whenever the keyless 
remote is receiving strong radio waves. Avoid placing 
it near electrical appliances such as televisions and 
personal computers.
